Ebola Virus:Lagos State is looking for those who boarded same flight with dead victim

Since the death of the Liberian,Mr Patrick Sawyer, who died in Lagos from the Ebola Virus,the Lagos State Government said  it had identified no fewer than 59 people who had contacts with him.
Dr Jide Idris, the Commissioner for Health said 20 of the contacts had been screened and that none of them had so far been found to be infected with the virus.
According to Vanguard,he said the contacts did not include those he might have been with on his flight to Nigeria on July 20, as the airline had yet to release the passenger manifest for investigation.

    “The airline manifest has not been provided by the airline as at the time of this report and therefore, the precise number of passenger contacts is yet to be ascertained, especially as two flights were involved (Monrovia-Lome and Lome-Lagos).”

The commissioner urged Nigerians not to entertain fears about Sawyer`s case as the state and Federal Governments were doing everything possible to prevent any risk to the country.
