July 31, 2014 – Ebola Virus: Nigerians Want Jim Iyke Tested & Quarantined Before Entry Into Lagos

Jim Iyke left Liberia yesterday for Nigeria over Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in the country

Following the actor’s return, some Nigerians, who are following him on Twitter, have wondered if he was tested before ad­mission into the country.

Twitter user @Ava­riberry posted a mes­sage reading: “Jim Iyke or Not… he gotta be screened. #TestJimIyke.”

Meanwhile @Icall­Dibbz_ said: “Please ooo, James Ikechukwu, aka Jim Iyke, should be quar­antined.”

Others picked up on the fact that Iyke had an ex­pensive facemask to pro­tect him, but wore a short-sleeved T-shirt.

Ebola is transmitted through close contact with the blood, secretions, or­gans or other bodily fluids of infected animals, and in many parts of West Af­rica people are being told to cover as much of their body as possible to ensure the infection doesn’t enter their bloodstream through a small cut.

Earlier yesterday, a British woman was quar­antined at a hospital in Hong Kong after falling ill with Ebola-like symp­toms when she returned from a trip to Africa.
