Back To Beat

Oh dear, how refreshing it is to be back to this beat on PP.

For over 5 weeks now we have battled with containing the spread of Ebola Viral Disease in Nigeria.

Those of you following news from Nigeria would remember that on July 25th 2014, one Patrick Sawyer a Liberian – American flew into Nigeria fully conscious that he was suffering from the dreaded Ebola Viral Disease, had contacts with African Union Officials before being rushed to a Private Hospital where he eventually died but not without infecting some Senior Staff of that Hospital who thought they were doing good to save the life of a patient.

That was the genesis of Ebola Viral Disease in Nigeria and from there, our country has lost about 8 persons to the disease including a couple – a man and his wife – who had contact with the man.

The Nigerian Medical Association has also lost 2 Medical Doctors who had primary contact with Patrick.

The Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria did not waste time in procuring the necessary equipment and materials to manage the disease, quarantine was ensured and people released as they lived for more than 29 days without showing signs of the dreaded disease.

Yours sincerely has been involved in efforts to contain that disease and that kept me on my toes making it difficult to come on here and do what I have been loving all this while.

But now, we can heave a sigh of relief that at least as I write, there is not a single case of EVD in Nigeria, yes there are people still being closely observed but there are no fresh or new cases and I thought you guys should know what kept me away for this long.

Thanks for your patience

I am glad t hear that the outbreak seems to have been contained in Nigeria. It still appears to be a horrible epidemic in Ghana and other western countries.

The most affected Countries are Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leon
Senegal and Nigeria have contained the spread of the virus
There are no new cases in Nigeria as at the moment, our President has declared the Country Ebola free

I don't know what I did to my comment. Now, confused man is confused. :/

I'm also hearing there are folks in Sierra Leone who say ebola never existed.

Oh, whoops, I should have said Guinea. Good news for Ghana, anyway.

I am very happy that you and your colleagues were able to bring the threat under control. It seems it is not going so well in other parts of Africa.
