Published by Daily Times on Sat, 30 Aug 2014


No fewer than 160 persons that made contact with the Ebola victim in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State have been identified and put under observation.Commissioner for Health, Sampson Parker, stated at a news conference at the states secretariat in Port Harcourt on Friday that the people had shown no signs of the Ebola disease.The commissioner added that the baby of the widow of the late health worker, who has since been quarantined, was in good health.While dispelling rumours that the state was not working with the Federal Government in tackling the spread of the disease, Parker said, Rivers State now has a mobile testing unit for testing blood samples for the virus. A national Ebola response team has been set up and headed by the Minister of Health, Professor Oyenbuchi Chukwu.He also stated that all places identified to have been visited by the late victim after he met with an ECOWAS diplomat, Oluibukun Koye, were being decontaminated as part of measures to contain the spread of the disease.The late doctors residence, the Green Heart hospital, where he was treated and the morgue where his body was kept, were part of the places being decontaminated.The Ebola Virus Disease has killed five persons in Nigeria, with five of the deaths occurring in Lagos State, where the first case of the disease was recorded.Since the outbreak of the disease in West Africa, at least 1,500 deaths have been recorded.
