Minister of Health Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu said today that Nigeria has been able to reduce the number of Ebola cases to just one.
At a press briefing held today August 26th in Abuja, Prof. Onyebuchi said only one patient out of the 13 confirmed cases in Nigeria is still at the Isolation center. He said five of those infected died while seven have successfully recovered and have been discharged. He also said two of the nurses who attended to Patrick Sawyer at the First Consultant hospital were discharged yesterday.

Patrick Sawyer‘s mother, Georgia Nah said she is heartbroken, after losing two of her children to the Ebola virus in the space of less than three weeks. The 40-year-old Liberian became the first American citizen to be killed by the virus when he died in Lagos, Nigeria on July 25.
Just a few weeks earlier he had been at the bedside of his sister, Princess Nyuennyue, 27, who was hospitalised in Liberia where she lived with her fiancée and son. Ms Nyuennyue died on July 7, a day after her brother visited her.

Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, the Nigerian physician who died in Lagos this week, was mistakenly exposed to the Ebola Virus Disease at the First Consultants Medical Center in Ikoyi where she worked and attended to Patrick Sawyer, the patient who brought EVD into the country. But she was heroically instrumental to preventing a massive outbreak in the country, an effort she paid for with her life last Tuesday.
A statement she co-authored with Dr. B.N. Ohiaeri before her death explained how Mr. Sawyer was first diagnosed with malaria upon his arrival on the night of July 20. Here is the text of the statement by First Consultants Medical Center Ltd.
The Boko Haram insurgency is far beyond the problem of the North East people as families in other parts of the country are now equally battling the bitter taste of the sect’s rampaging activities. One of such is Alhaji Mustapha Oyeyinka who is now cursing the day he decided to relocate to Nigeria from Europe where his family has been doing fine.
Today, he has not only lost his sight to the insurgents but lives with an agonizing memory of seeing his wife raped along with other women almost on a daily basis for three months in one of the camps of the deadly sect in Kaduna State. Enraged and bitter, the frustrated 50-year- old Mustapha told DailySun his story, here are excerpts:
Excited about his return to Nigeria, Alhaji Mustapha Oyeyinka sometime in February 2011 decided to take a trip to Kaduna with his wife, Rachael to attend a wedding ceremony. Unknown to him, that trip will alter his destiny as they ended up in a Boko Haram camp where they spent three horrifying months.

Funny video but straight to the point. Serial job hunter, Frank Donga is obviously concerned about the threatening Ebola virus; he gives advice to a youth on how to detect the symptoms of Ebola and how to keep oneself safe. Be Informed.
I just can't hold back my emotions with this one, really! The Liberian Minister who approved late Patrick Sawyer's trip to Nigeria has angrily reacted after he was criticized for letting Sawyer, a staff of the Liberian government, leave Liberia for Nigeria despite Liberian health officials placing him on Ebola danger list.
Deputy Finance Minister Sebastian Muah Omar told a Facebook user who asked him why he made such a decision that he does not owe him any explanation. He also said he wasn't late Sawyer's doctor to stop him from traveling.
One of the minister's followers queried him, saying,
“As his superior, if a man tells you his sister died from Ebola and he could have beenexposed do you not think it is your duty to ask the hard questions or maybe you could have reported this to the health officials?...

A man believed to be training female bombers has been arrested in Kano yesterday. Ibrahim Ibrahim was arrested with 16 girls who security agents said were being trained as would-be bombers. The security agents carried out the raid following a tip off.
JTF spokesman Capt. Ikechukwu Eze confirmed the arrest, and said investigation was ongoing.
A security source also told The Nation anonymously that when interrogated, the suspect disclosed that he brought the female bombers from the Sambisa forest in Borno State.
The 1970's inspired video was shot in Ogun State, Nigeria with a vintage Mercedes Benz, decade appropriate costumes and other props. The video shows the journey of a newlywed couple; played by Timi Dakolo and his wife, through good and difficult times. Lovely video.

Well this is good news. The Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, announced yesterday that their country is to receive sample doses of experimental drug, ZMapp to treat doctors infected with Ebola
A statement published on Mrs Sirleaf's website on Monday said the US had approved a request from Liberia to ship the medicine after a direct appeal to US President Barack Obama on Friday.
According to nurses, he displayed some very serious symptoms when first admitted, “That small boy was very, very sick. We did not think he would survive as so many haven’t,” said Sister Nancy Yoko, the nurse in charge of the Ebola Treatment Centre in Kenema.

This is according to City People Magazine but I don't quite agree because there are females who work hard for their money plus it does not really make sense to me but hey. People in the know already know it’s a ‘normal’ way of life for some ladies in the city. Read on:
Do you know that quite a lot of babes who live in Abuja do not have any correct job that they do. Do you also know that very few of them have shops or any tangible work place they can point to as office, yes they live big and they drive flashy and exotic cars, live in very expensive apartments, dress to kill, buy expensive things and travel abroad for holidays.
Some of those babes do not have their parents or relatives in Abuja. Some are students but still engage in dirt acts, while some don’t even have anything doing.
This is heartbreaking. A pregnant woman who went for her usual check up at the First Consultant Hospital Obalande – same hospital that Patrick Sawyer was admitted - tested positive of the virus on Friday. She got infected after being treated by the same nurse who attended to the Liberian carrier, Patrick Sawyer.
It will be recalled that two nurses came in direct contact with Mr. Sawyer and one of them died this week – the other nurse, Justina is still alive.
The pregnant woman has since been quarantined at the mainland hospital where there is an isolation emergency center for Ebola virus victims.

The 75 year old Spanish priest who was infected with the Ebola virus in Liberia is being treated with the new experimental drug, Zmapp, which was used to treat two US missionary doctors infected with the virus.
The Spanish government claimed yesterday that the drug was imported from Geneva and doctors have begun to administer it on Fr. Miguel Pajares at Madrid’s La Paz-Carlos III hospital where he is in isolation.
The first person to be treated with the serum, Dr. Kent Brantly, saw his condition improve after being given Zmapp.
Since his treatment began, Fr. Pajares is said to be in stable condition, no longer has fever, and hasn't any hemorrhaging. Doctors believe that his condition will greatly improve in the coming days.
When will the ZMapp drug get to Africa? just wondering...
