August 16, 2014 – Photo Of Nigerian Doctor Who Contracted Ebola Virus In Lagos Hospital Where Patrick Sawyer Died
The latest victim of the deadly Ebola virus disease in Nigeria is Doctor Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, a Senior Doctor, trained Endocrinologist working at First Consultant Specialist Hospital in Obalende Lagos.
She got infected with the Ebola virus after treating the Liberian-American whom his wife alleged came to Nigeria for treatment of Ebola virus disease last month.
The doctor was one of those hardworking consultants who attended to the Liberian man when he was rushed to the aforementioned Obalende-based hospital.
In a Press conference yesterday, her colleague Mr Okubadejo appealed to the United States of America to send the experimental Ebola treatment drug to Nigeria in order to save Doctor Miss Adedevoh from death.
“She treated Patrick Sawyer because she was patriotic only for her to be infected with the virus. I am appealing to the U.S. government to send whatever medication they have to Nigeria fast to save Adadevoh. She does not deserve to die. So, this is the reason for this appeal,” Mr. Okubadejo said.
