Sept 5, 2014 – ‘Ebola Patient’ Causes Panic At Asaba Delta State Hospital
Chaos struck at the Federal Medical Center in Asaba yesterday when a male patient started exhibiting Ebola virus infection symptoms.
The discovery resulted in stampede as people around at the time ignorantly scampered for safety for fear of having contact with the patient.
The MD of FMC, Dr Leo Erhunmwunse said the patient was admitted because he was vomiting and stooling.
“A patient who was stooling and vomiting was actually brought to the hospital today (yesterday), symptoms of Ebola but we need to confirm if he is suffering from the disease. We need to carry out series of test to verify if he has the virus or not. People should not panic. The situation is under control,” he assured
