August 9, 2014 – Nigerian Actress Annie Idibia, 2face’s Wife Flees Lagos Event Over Ebola Virus Disease Fear

The fear of Ebola virus has now become a major concern among people living in Lagos and its environ.

The wife of singer Tuface Idibia, Annie reportedly fled an open-air event yesterday over the fear of contracting the deadly Ebola virus from others.

The mother of two made this known on her IG page few hours ago:

“About last night…. Was out for only an hr n ran home for the fear of #Ebola #lordPlsdeliverDworldFromThisVirus #plsLord #saveourchildrenNus #itfeelsLikeAvryHorrifyingmovie”
This is Annie at the event few hours before she ran home.

The biggest threat with Ebola is that it is airborne.

Researchers demonstrated that the virus could be transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact by placing the two animals in pens separated only by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the monkeys were found to have symptoms of Ebola likely as a result of “inhaling large aerosol droplets produced from the respiratory tracts of the pigs.”

The results of the study led scientists to conclude that, “limited airborne transmission might be contributing to the spread of the disease in some parts of Africa,” although they cautioned against making comparisons to the airborne nature of the influenza virus.

Be watchful people. Prevention is better than cure.
