*Breaking News* Patient Gets Ebola In Hospital by Nobody: 10:41pm On Sep 01, 2014
A female patient on admission in the same hospital as the late Port Harcourt doctor who treated a colleague of Patrick Sawyer has tested positive for Ebola virus disease, bringing total confirmed cases to 16.

Health minister Onyebuchi Chukwu told an emergency meeting of the national council on health in Abuja that the patient—the third confirmed case in Port Harcourt—was “presently under treatment” in an isolation ward in Rivers state.

The doctor, Iyke Enemuo, died last week, days after treating an ECOWAS diplomat colleague of Sawyer who evaded surveillance in Lagos after he was taken ill.

His wife, also a doctor, showed symptoms last week and was put in quarantine.

Two other contacts of the late Port Harcourt—including a doctor who managed him and a pharmacy technician in his hospital—were admitted into isolation treatment after they showed symptoms.

Their test results are yet negative for Ebola but “laboratory tests will be repeated to reconfirm their status,” said Chukwu.

All are the first confirmed cases of Ebola outside Lagos, where the virus first hit.

Some 199 people have been put under surveillance in Port Harcourt since last week, and none has completed the 21 day observation period.

“It is expected that a few more contacts will develop the EVD especially in Rivers State before Nigeria will see the last case of EVD,” Chukwu told health commissioners on Monday.

“While it is encouraging that so far, all confirmed cases of EVD in Nigeria have their roots in the index case, Mr. Patrick Sawyer, great vigilance is required particularly at our ports of entry to ensure we do not have cases of EVD from other sources other than Mr. Sawyer.

Lagos, where the outbreak started, has seen the number of people on surveillance drop to 72.

A total 278 contacts in Lagos have been taken off surveillance after completing a required 21 days—the period equivalent to the incubation of Ebola.

Enugu, the first city which came under threat after a nurse evaded surveillance in Lagos to be with family in Enugu, has seen no case of Ebola.

Six identified contacts there completed 21 days under observation and were let off.

In latest report presented to the council, the health ministry said total 13 people have been treated at isolation wards in Lagos. Seven have been discharged and two more on treatment in Lagos are said to be stable.

We have educated illiterate in ph who claimed ebola is political here. He even came up with conspiracy theory that the Governor import the virus because of Jonathan rally.

Well this gives an easy avenue for the virus to spread in ph.

God help the helpless in this time of trouble as promised in your world.

I agree absolutely.

Major side effect of drug abuse would be a first case of kidney failure and eventual kidney transplant - God forbid.

The mortality rate of drug abuse is below 50% over a long period, if well managed. So, a preferred option than contacting the demon called ebola.

Never worry... it is not a fatality yet, better than ebola grin

The Effects of Drug Abuse on the Kidneys While the use of drugs can have a serious impact on any part of the body, many users may not be aware of the severe damage that can occur to the kidneys. As drugs are absorbed by the body, they are cleaned by the kidneys.

As these vital organs filter waste from the body, they are exposed to ill effects from drugs. Many severe complications can develop from continued exposure to drugs and alcohol and the effects of drug abuse can be life threatening.

It is important to remember that the kidneys do more than just excrete waste, they also produce hormones that affect the function of other organs -

Hold Jonathan responsible for further spread of Ebola in PH. He allowed a senseless rally just cos of his desperation for a 2nd term, while schools are shut, church crusades banned, large gatherings also banned.
