Dr Ameyo Adadevoh succumbs to Ebola Virus Disease

by Kolapo Olapoju

Dr Ameyo Stella Adadevoh of First Consultants Hospital has died from the Ebola Virus Disease, which she contracted after attending to Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian/American who brought the disease into Nigeria.

Our sources say she died this afternoon, Tuesday, 19 August, 2014, at an isolation centre where she had been quarantined along with other doctors and nurses who treated Sawyer at First Consultants Hospital, Obalende, Lagos.

Over the weekend, reports had suggested that she had survived the disease and had been discharged from quarantine, until the Minister of health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu issued a statement clarifying that she was not the survivor.

Although, there was high hopes that she would miraculously pull through, it didn’t become a reality.

She is survived by her son and husband. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
