Another Liberian with Ebola receiving treatment in Lagos
Posted 2 mins ago
Akintayo
by S’ola Filani

Barely a month after a Liberian national, Patrick Sawyer imported the deadly Ebola disease into Nigeria, and a day after the death of Dr. Stella Adadevoh, another Liberian is in Lagos with the disease. A Senior Registrar with Igbobi Orthopaedic hospital, Lagos, Dr Akindele Akintayo made this known while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise programme this morning.

Although Dr. Akintayo didn’t reveal much, he however said that the Liberian is currently in the Lagos Isolation center.

“You need to know that there is another liberian patient under observation that is being treated for Ebola in an Infectious Disease Hospital Lagos.

“Am not very sure if he is a new case or had contact with Patrick Sawyer,” he explained.

Dr. Akintayo also emphasised the need for infected dead persons to be cremated in order not to transmit the virus, saying that the virus survives in the dead. He called for more community awareness programmes to help ensure that the virus would not spread to other Nigerian states.

All the confirmed Ebola cases are in Lagos State in south west Nigeria.
Several persons were said to have contracted the disease in Liberia during burials. According to reports, the late Patrick Sawyer contracted the virus during the late sister’s burial.
Since the disease broke out early this year, at least 1,200 deaths have been recorded, most of them in West Africa.

As we recall, Patrick Sawyer introduced the deadly Ebola virus to Lagos, Nigeria a few weeks ago. However, today, CKN Nigeria has alleged that another Liberian has been found with the dreaded virus.

According to the online newspaper, Senior Registrar with the Igbobi Orthopaedic hospital, Lagos, Dr. Akindele Akintayo revealed this while speaking on a Morning TV program.

CKN says: "...the Liberian has been kept at the IDH in Lagos. Dr Akintayo said it cannot be confirmed if the new case had a contact with late Mr Sawyer or not."

This remains unconfirmed by any other news source.

We will update you as soon as we have more information.

Lagos State Government has said contrary to reports published by some on-line platforms, there is no case of another Liberian infected with the deadly noting that the said Liberian was discharged yesterday after being observed for the 21 days incubation period.

The clarification was made yesterday by the State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris during an update on the spread of the disease at the State Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja.

Dr. Idris confirmed that there were five new suspected cases of EVD in Lagos, he however explained that they have been quarantined and kept at the Ebola Isolation Centre located within Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH), Yaba, Lagos.

Giving details about the situation on ground at the Isolation Centre, he said there were six people right in there as at the time of addressing the media adding that there are health personnel in place to manage the current cases while efforts are being made to re-doubled towards securing the services of more volunteers to cope with any contingency.

According to him, the ministry did not give the suspects a specific treatment saying they were being given supporting treatment based on individual symptoms. “There's no Ebola drug or vaccines for now. Ebola treatment is a totally different matter. That was why those who treat them have to be given special training because they must not make mistake,” he said.

On concerns that was raised in some quarters as regards discharge of a suspect under monitoring, Dr. Idris
re-assure the public that the discharge process was in line with WHO International Health Regulations adding that the guideline is still being followed strictly.

The Commissioner also disclosed that the contact tracing team is currently tracing 213 people who have had contact with infected and suspected people out of which 62 have completed the two-day follow-up and are therefore due for discharge.

Dr. Idris called for renewed vigilance and detailed attention to public and personal hygiene by members of the public as the nation grapples with the spread of the deadly EVD.

Speaking on the death of Dr. Stella Shade Ameyo Adadevoh, Senior Consultant/Endocrinologist of First Consultant Hospital, Obalende, Lagos, Dr. Idris saluted the late doctor for her doggedness and commitment to duty.

He said the late Adadevoh led the team that attended to Patrick Sawyer who brought Ebola virus into the country adding that she took initiative to intimate the Ministry of Health concerning Sawyer's case when the hospital diagnosed the Liberian.

The Health Commissioner added that her action led to the moderate containment of EVD achieved by the state. “No doubt, she and other affected health workers are the heroes and heroines of the day,” he said. He commiserated with their families, co-workers, friends and loved ones.

Dr. Idris was supported at the briefing by the Commissioner for Special Duties, Dr. Wale Ahmed and Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Lateef Ibirogba
