Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, said on Monday that another Lagos nurse has tested positive to the Ebola Virus Disease.

The development came 22 days after the first first case of the virus was recorded.


The minister explained that the newly married nurse was among those that had direct contact with the late Liberian man, Patrick Sawyer, who imported the disease to Nigeria.

Chukwu also added that the husband of the nurse was also among the 177 people who had now been placed under surveillance.

He added that, so far, nine have developed EVD,thus bringing the total number of cases in Nigeria to 10.

According to him, two people, that is the Liberian and the nurse are dead while eight are alive and currently on treatment.

He also said all those who had primary contact with Sawyer had been contacted and placed on either surveillance or quarantined.

The minister also said the infection of the virus had so far been restricted to Lagos as it had not spread to other parts of the country.
