Previously...

Nurse Justina Obi Ejelonu, has been confirmed by World Health Organization (WHO) officials to have contacted the Ebola Virus. She is one of the Nurses that attended to the Liberian Ebola patient, Mr Sawyerr at First Consultant Hospital Obalande.

The Ebonyi State University Abakaliki graduate wrote about her experience early this week attending to the Liberian Ebola Patient that died in her Hospital.

According to Hope For Nigeria, Nurse Justina wrote:, "I never contacted his fluids. I checked his Vitals,helped him with his food. (He was too weak).....I basically touched where his hands touched and that is d only contact. Not directly with his fluids. "At a stage, he yanked off his infusion and we had blood everywhere on his bed.....but the ward maids took care of that and changed his linens with great precaution.every patient is treated as high risk .....if it were airborne, by now wahala for dey. I still thank God."
"Friends, up to our uniforms and all linens were burnt off. We are on surveillance and off work till 11th".

"Our samples have long been taken by WHO officials and so far we have been fine.
"For me, kudos to my hospital management cos we work professionally with every patient considered a high risk cos thats d training. Had it been a hospital where they manage ordinary gloves like Govt hospital...Wahala for dey o. I must also thank Lagos Govt....infact! Even federal govt sef....all been supportive.
"Im good and so are the others in d hosp....."

Sadly, Nurse Justina is now an Ebola patient and has been quarantined. While we pray for her, we Must sign the PETITION To the USA Government to release the ZMapp Drugs that has been used on the other American patients in Liberia.
