Nigeria confirms 1 more Ebola case


By BASHIR ADIGUN

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) - Nigeria's health minister, Onyebuchi Chukwu, has announced there is another Ebola case in Africa's most populous country, bringing the total confirmed cases there to 11.

Chukwu told reporters in Abuja, the capital, Thursday that the latest patient is a doctor who helped treat the first Ebola case in the country, Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer who arrived from Liberia last month with the virus and died on July 25. All those who are ill with Ebola in Nigeria had direct contact with Sawyer.

Nigeria has recorded three deaths: Sawyer, a Nigerian nurse who helped treat him as well as an employee of the Economic Community Of West African States who helped transport Sawyer to a hospital after he landed in Lagos, the commercial capital, and collapsed at the airport.
