Ebola: Nurse Who Treated Late Patrick Sawyer Dies In Lagos

These are sad days in Nigeria. Another nurse who had contact with late Liberian-American Mr. Patrick Sawyer is dead. Nurse Obi Justina Ejelonu, who attended to Patrick Sawyer, a primary carrier of the deadly virus who flew to Nigeria on his way to attend a conference in Calabar, died in Lagos.

Relatives of the beautiful Nurse have confirmed the unfortunate news about her death, adding that Ms Ejelonu had been kept in a quarantine facility in Lagos, after she tested positive to Ebola.

Until her death, the outspoken nurse was at the center of a campaign to get the ZMapp experimental drugs to the Ebola victims in Nigeria. May her peaceful soul rest in peace. Amen!
