The most senior doctor, a female consultant physician, who participated in the management of the first Ebola patient in Nigeria, Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, has died.

Nigeria’s Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu, announced the death on Tuesday evening.

Dr. Stella Ameyo Adadevoh, a Senior Consultant and Endocrinologist, had unknowingly contracted the disease in the process of treating the Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer, who imported the disease into Nigeria late July.

With this unfortunate development, the total number of Ebola Virus related deaths in Nigeria now stands at five.

The other two patients currently under treatment in the isolation wards are stable and are being taken care of. ChannelsTV
