Nigerians Remember Ebola Heroine Dr. Stella Adadevoh, 6 years after her Death

NEWSMAN, Abuja – Director General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has remembered Dr. Stella Ameyo Adadevoh, who died in August 19, 2020 while trying to save the country from the dreaded Ebola epidemic.

She was said to have vehemently turned down a request by Patrick Sawyer’s employers to have him discharged so he could catch a flight to Calabar from Lagos, where he had been due to attend a conference, Guardian had reported.

Adadevoh contracted the Ebola virus from Sawyer in an effort to stop it’s  spread.

Six years after her demise, Nigerians still remember her bravery, and have taken the time to remember her today.

Meanwhile, as Nigeria currently battles with the corona virus pandemic, at least 10 doctors have died of the virus, and Over 800 Nigerian health workers have contracted the novel coronavirus since the first case was confirmed in February.

According to a report by the NCDC, Nigeria as of August 19 has recorded 49,895 confirmed cases, discharged 37,051 patients, and recorded 981 deaths.
