I don’t know how to describe this news, but sounds like something to cheer about as the Lagos State governor has provided us with an update on ten victims said to have been infected with the dreaded Ebola virus.
At a meeting with traditional rulers and religious leaders at the State House, Ikeja today; the governor was quoted as saying ‘five’ of the victims have greatly improved.
“The idea of cure is not there. The idea of bitter kola is unverified. Bathing with salt is also unverified. As at today, we have recorded two dead cases — the Liberian and the nurse. We now have 10 persons in isolation that are receiving treating. Eight of them have been confirmed positive to Ebola Virus Disease.
The fear of Ebola is causing panic virtually everywhere in the country as confusion reigned in a community in Edo when a man was said to have died of the virus.
Following the death of the middle aged man whom some section of the community alleged died of the dreaded Ebola Virus last Sunday in Udo community in Orhiomwon Local Government Council of Edo state.
Officials of the Ministry of Health in the state however, ran to the community which is about one hour drive from Benin City, to collect the blood sample of the deceased with a view to ascertain the actual cause of death.
I hope some Nigerians won’t die of the fear of the virus.
In a bid to curb the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, passengers arriving both from the domestic and international wings of the Nnamdi Azikwe Airport, Abuja, Nigeria are now being made to undergo intense screening.
At least the government is doing all it can to curb the spread that has already claimed the lives of two people in the country, with ten others already confirmed as having the deadly virus.

This is no longer a child’s play as the number of confirmed cases of Ebola has risen to 10
The Federal Government has confirmed another Ebola case in Lagos bringing the total number of Ebola Virus Disease victims to 10, even as 177 primary and secondary contacts of the index case have been placed under surveillance or isolation.
At a world media briefing held in the nation’s capital Abuja this morning (Monday), the Minister of Health Prof Onyebuchi Chukwu said of these 10 cases, 2 have died (the Liberian American and the Nigerian nurse) while 8 are alive and currently on treatment.
This is the situation 22 days since the dreaded EVD first landed in Nigeria.
At the sub regional level, the Ebola Virus Disease was discussed as a substantive agenda during the Summit of the Authority of Heads of State and Government in Accra Ghana.
Chukwu said Nigeria, as usual, played its leading, pioneering and compassionate role during the Summit with the first and only donation of USD3.5 million humanitarian and capacity building aid to the three affected countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, the West African Health Organization (WAHO), and the ECOWAS Ebola Fund.
