The First Consultants Hospital, a private medical center in Lagos, while presenting a detailed account of the incident leading to the death of a Liberian official, Patrick Sawyer, after contacting the deadly Ebola virus, said “we were told he had an important role to play at the ECOWAS convention in Calabar, but we refused to let him out.”

The hospital management stated this in a press statement issued before its closure by the Lagos State Ministry of Health, which also quarantined some hospital staff confirmed to have had close contact with the late consultant, in the first and only Ebola case recorded so far in Nigeria.

“The 40 year old consultant for the Liberian finance ministry collapsed on arrival at Lagos airport on July 20, and was taken to the First Consultants Hospital, where he was put in isolation and later died on Friday. “The hospital according to the Health Ministry, will be shut for a week and all staff of the hospital closely monitored.”
