First case of ebola reported in Lagos
July 26 , 2014
A man in Lagos has died of the extremely contagious and deadly virus ebola, making it the first confirmed case of the virus in Africa’s most populous city.
Patrick Sawyer, 40, from Liberia died shortly after he arrived in Nigeria, health officials said.
This is being seen as a grim development as the disease has already claimed more than 650 lives in the west African countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since February.
