A doctor has died from the Ebola virus in Nigeria after contracting it from a man who evaded authorities trying to monitor the disease, according to the country's health minister Onyebuchi Chukwu.
The man who infected the medic contracted the virus after coming into contact with Nigeria's first case, the Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer.
However, the country's health minister Onyebuchi Chukwu told reporters he had evaded surveillance and gone on to infect the doctor who was working in the oil industry hub, Port Harcourt.
Chukwu said the man had recovered from the disease, but the doctor had died. The wife of the doctor is also now being quarantined after she developed symptoms of the deadly disease.
The death was the first in Nigeria outside Lagos, the country's commercial capital.
