August 20, 2014 – How Patrick Sawyer Intentionally Infected Lagos-Based Nigerian Doctor Ameyo Stella Adedavoh With Ebola Virus

Details have emerged on how the latest Ebola victim in Nigeria contracted the virus from a Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer at an hospital in Obalende Lagos.

Popular Lagos-based Doctor Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, a Senior Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist, was one of those who diagnosed and was treating Sawyer of the ailment when he was first brought into First Consultant Hospital.

The hospital was where the late Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American, was diagnosed with the deadly Ebola disease .

According to the ELITES, when Patrick Sawyer arrived the hospital, the first person he came into contact with was Dr. Ada, the 26-year-old who was also infected with the deadly virus by the Liberian-American carrier. Dr. Ada has since recovered from the infection and discharged from quarantine facility.

Sources disclosed that Sawyer told Dr. Ada that he had Malaria. He didn’t tell her he was coming from Liberia where he had been in contact with his sister who died of Ebola.
The following day, when Sawyer did not show any sign of recovery from malaria, in spite of the thorough treatment that was given to him, Dr. Ada and her colleagues at First Consultants Hospital became concerned. She then invited her boss, Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, the senior consultant at the hospital, who immediately suspected Ebola and ordered for test.

In one of their close encounters with Sawyer, he became restive, dropped his drip bag on the floor and called for assistance. When the nurse came, he told her that he wanted to see the doctor and not the nurse. When the doctor arrived, she found the drip bag on the floor. She then assisted him to reset the drip without gloves and protective clothing. This might have been the moment of contact with Sawyer’s fluid.

As Adadevoh battles to survive the infection of the deadly virus, the recovery and eventual discharge of Dr. Ada and other victims, has raised the hope of many Nigerians that the popular medical practitioner will beat the virus and bounce back to life soon. Sources disclosed that family and friends of Adadevoh have been rallying round to facilitate medical cure for her. According to reports, Dr Ada was treated by Nigerian local doctors, with immune boosting drugs, antibiotics and symptoms management drugs and her survival is largely attributed to her strong immune system.

May her soul rest in perfect peace (amen)

    But it is against the medical code of ethic to touch blood with bare hands no matter how compassionate she might be, she has broken the rule.

    Other medical practitioners should learn from her demise. Make self protection your number one priority. Life is irreplaceable.

    Dr Jamiu,

    Your comment is highly rash and insensitive. I am sure you do not know better than her and you were not in her shoes for the decision she made as regards her patient.
    This is your second comment on how wrong she was in carrying out her duties but for God’s sake can you spare the public your opinion of how right or wrong she could have dealt with her patient.
    She is no more anyway, the least you can do is wish her “rest in peace”.
    This woman has attended to me before, believe you me, she was very good. I felt better even without medication. All we can say is “It is well” because only God knows best.

      pls ,dont put sentiment in watever argument on ground,this is public opinion where everyone express his/her thought.
      For God sake,Dr.jamiu is telling us the ethic/role of the proffession and you are saying the woman is computent,who said NO to that and besides,does it mean no one can make mistake? Let admit she made the mistake shekenaaaa.

      The one that has recovered is the 26 years old Dr Ada, not Dr Stella; she died few days ago. May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

    Its unfortunate that the country our soldiers fought gallantly to forestore peace stab us at our back and rob us of impeccable Doctor and citizens. Decontee Sawyer had the effrontery to talk rots. well, Patrick Sawyer as rightly said is a medical terrorist to Nigeria.

    Dr. Stella Adedavoh may your Soul Rest in Peace and God grant the family the effort to bear the irreplaceable lost. God bless Nigeria
