Via FrontPageAfrica: Ebola Attacks Catholic Hospital: Chief Adm., Dispenser Hit. The last paragraph implies that Patrick Sawyer's "indiscipline" at St. Joseph's Hospital may have caused his fatal infection.
FrontPageAfrica has gathered that the deadly Ebola virus which recently killed the Chief Medical officer of the John F. Kennedy medical center, Dr. Samuel Brisbane, has attacked another major health facility in the country, the St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital, contaminating two senior officials. Late Wednesday it was gathered that Mr. Patrick Nshairndze, Chief Administrator and a Dispenser have contracted the virus and the hospital is likely to be shut down.
FrontPageAfrica learnt from sources close to the hospital that the two have been confirmed positive with the deadly Ebola virus which is attacking health practitioners across the country. As of Wednesday there were 47 confirmed of cases of the virus infesting health care workers with 28 deaths so far.
A nurse in Foyah, Lofa County was one of the first medical victims followed by another at the Redemption Hospital, again a Ugandan Doctor, and since then the virus has been killing both ordinary Liberians and health care workers attending to patients.
At the ELWA Hospital, the humanitarian group Samaritan’s Purse is treating one of its doctors, Dr. Kent Brantly who tested positive for the virus. Dr. Brantly and his organization was in the frontline giving care to Liberians affected by the deadly disease when he contracted it.
Another American, Missionary Nancy Writebol, from Charlotte, North Carolina, is also sick and is at the ELWA as Liberia struggles against the worst outbreak in history. St. Joseph is a major medical facility in Liberia and has been helping with some patients infected by the virus.
The sister of Ebola victim Patrick Sawyer, who died in Nigeria of the virus was treated at the St. Joseph’s Hospital where Sawyer is said to have engaged in acts of indiscipline. Sawyer’s sister died of the virus after being treated at the St. Joseph’s Hospital.
