Third Ebola Case Confirmed In Portharcourt

A female patient on admission in the same hospital as the late Port Harcourt doctor who treated a colleague of Patrick Sawyer has tested positive for Ebola virus disease, bringing total confirmed cases to 16.

Health minister Onyebuchi Chukwu told an emergency meeting of the national council on health in Abuja that the patient the third confirmed case in Port Harcourt was “presently under treatment” in an isolation ward in Rivers state.

Two other contacts of the late Port Harcourt doctor, including a doctor who managed him and a pharmacy technician in his hospital were admitted into isolation treatment after they showed symptoms.

Their test results are yet negative for Ebola but “laboratory tests will be repeated to reconfirm their status,” said Chukwu.
