Lucie Lecomte has sent the links to several separate Ebola stories from Nigeria. First, from NigerianNation.com: Suspected Ebola Victim Dies In Abuja Hospital. Excerpt:
A patient suspected to have been infected with the deadly Ebola virus has died at the Asokoro Hospital Abuja.
The suspected patient, who exhibited symptoms similar to those of persons infected with the virus died at the hospital last Friday.
Following the death of the patient, the Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital where the patient was being treated has been cordoned off and the accident and emergency unit has been temporarily relocated to the General outpatient unit (GOPD). Similarly, a list of all medical staff who had come in contact with the patient has been compiled and they are all under surveillance.
In addition, The Trent reports a suspected Ebola case in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state. And The Nigerian Voice says two of three suspected Ebola cases in Port Harcourt have been released from quarantine after testing negative, but the third has tested positive.
Uyo is about 124 km from Port Harcourt, so some kind of connection with the Port Harcourt cases seems likely if the case is confirmed. Abuja, however, is 663 km from Port Harcourt, an hour by air and nine by road—about the same as from Lagos.
