Dr Adadevoh’s Sister Test Positive to Ebola Virus
Sister of the senior physician at the First Consultants Medical Center in Lagos, late Dr Stella Ameyo Adadevoh had contracted the deadly Ebola Virus.
The test which revealed her status was conducted last week and returned positive to the Ebola virus.
The sister was one of the people to have had contact with Dr Ameyo before she was killed by the virus. Dr Ameyo’s sister is reported presently under quarantine at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
The latest development came as Lagos State is facing the problem of shortage of volunteers to help care for the victims of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).
In spite of a life insurance scheme and N60, 000 daily allowance being offered by the state government, health workers and volunteers are still not forthcoming.
Lagos State Commissioner for Health Dr. Jide Idris, said they were striving to save the lives of confirmed Ebola cases but “our major challenge in this regard is personnel with requisite expertise, hence, our call for volunteers”.
