Lucie Lecomte has found a surprising report on a Nigerian "gossip" website: Stella Dimoko Korkus' Gossip..It Only Happens Here!: Ebola Virus Outbreak In Nigeria Update - OMG! I'm posting it a little hesitantly, and will try to confirm its details from other sources. Excerpt:
The latest development is that of one of the doctors who was in first consultant hospital when Sawyer was there LIED about having any contact with Mr Sawyer and his actions is about to cause an uproar again.
We all know that this hospital was where Mr Sawyer breathed his last. Subsequently, the Lagos State Ministry of health ensured that they carried out a thorough scrutiny of all the doctors and nurses on duty that day, just to know who had any contact with Mr Sawyer. Only a few answered in the affirmative and they were monitored. While the other consultants and nurses said that they never had any contact with Sawyer.
One of the doctors who denied contact with Sawyer fell sick days ago and started to exhibit the symptoms of Ebola. Rather than take extra precautions or isolate himself, or be taken to where the government has designated for the purpose, he called his pastor to come pray for him. His pastor got to his house,however on seeing that his( doctor's) condition was very critical, the pastor put him in his car along with his wife and they were taken to the hospital.
He was treated in the hospital upon declaring that he had a history of stroke. He however refused to disclose that he had the Ebola symptoms. Even though this doctor was sure that he had been infected with Ebola,he hid it from the doctor who attended to him. He returned home with his wife after treatment. Only for him to die at home 2 days after. Cause of death? Ebola!!!
Now this is what I find intriguing, shocking and annoying. The doctor's wife understood that her husband had Ebola. She knows the cause of death is Ebola. He died in the house, and the next thing was that she called for her husband to be embalmed right there in their home.
Who's next apart from his wife?
The pastor...he was oblivious to this danger but now has to be traced for monitoring. The doctor's wife, kids, household staff, pastor's relatives, and everyone else that was around him have to be close marked too. Not leaving out the morgue attendants that carried out the embalming, they also have to be traced for monitoring. At the last count, about 40 people have to be quickly reached and isolated to ensure that they are OK.
Where do we start from?
Late Doctor Adadevoh's sister caused an uproar days ago at the hotel where she was lodged by her family members. She was put there in isolation because she had close body contacts with her sister before she died. She submitted for testing but the results are not yet out to confirm whether she has been infected with Ebola.
The Lagos state ministry of health have endeavoured to put her under close monitoring and she is now in LASUTH where she awaits her blood test results. Contrary to public reports that it was the Lagos state ministry of health officials that put her up in a hotel, it was actually her family members that put her there.
