OAU Ebola Suspect Evacuated To Lagos





A female student of Obafemi Awolowo University, who is suspected to be a secondary contact of the Ebola Virus Disease in Port-Harcourt, presented sick at the University Health Centre.


After a clinical assessment by the Ebola Surveillance Preparedness and Response Committee of the University, the authorities thereafter contacted the State Ministry of Health, the Federal Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The suspected female secondary Ebola contact has since been evacuated to the appropriate facility in Lagos for further investigations to confirm her status.

In the meantime, the National Team and the WHO Team on Ebola Control have promptly decontaminated the University Health Centre despite the fact that the case is yet to be confirmed.

The University Authorities wish to emphasize the fact that the case is not a confirmed case of Ebola Virus Disease and therefore request all members of the University Community to remain calm as the situation is fully under control
