Nigeria has confirmed that a senior doctor who treated the country's first known Ebola patient had died of the disease herself.
All of Nigeria's reported cases have been people who had direct contact with a Liberian-American man who was already infected when he arrived in the country. Speaking at a conference, Dr Jide Idris said:
Yesterday, we recorded the death of the senior consultant endocrinologist of the First Consultant Hospital, Obalende, Lagos, Dr Stella Sade Ameyo Adadevoh.
She it was who took the initiative to intimate the Ministry concerning the index case (first patient), the Liberian-American Mister Patrick Sawyer, and substantially to her credit the moderate containment achieved we owe to her and her colleagues
