Lucie Lecomte just send me a bombshell in this August 19 Vanguard report: Ebola Latest: 3 new cases as 4 more victims are discharged. It's a long post, but the first two paragraphs stopped me cold:
It was a case of mixed fortunes for the nation, yesterday, in the management of the Ebola Virus Disease as three fresh cases were discovered, while four of those earlier admitted at the isolation centre in Lagos were discharged.
Lagos State Health Commissioner, Dr. Jide Idris, who confirmed the emergence of three new cases, remarked: “As at yesterday, (Sunday), we had three new suspected cases. One of them is a blood sample from Kaduna State, while the two others are from Lagos and they are primary contacts. A reason for this was that they do not have the laboratory to test for the virus."
Lagos is down on the coast. Kaduna state in way up in north central Nigeria. It's 80 minutes' flying time from Lagos to Kaduna city, and over 10 hours by car. So how did this blood sample turn up? Whose is it? How long has the person been in Kaduna, and where were they before?
