Recall how the mom-of-1, Dr Stella Ameyo Adadevoh, a Nigerian medical Senior Consultant/Endocrinologist curbed a wider spread of the Ebola virus in Nigeria in 2014; by placing Liberian-American diplomat, Patrick Sawyer in quarantine while awaiting his test results. She was afterwards pressured by Liberian government officials to let the patient go so he could attend the conference he came into Nigeria for, in Calabar as planned. Now, despite threats of lawsuits, Dr. Adadevoh had remained adamant stating that she would not release the patient “for the greater public good.” Unfortunately, this great heroic act of hers led to her death.

Since Nigerian health system was not prepared for an outbreak at the time, on August 4, 2014; it was confirmed that Adadevoh had tested positive to the deadly virus which has no cure, and she succumbed to death on August 19, 2014.

The World Health Organization declared Nigeria Ebola-free on October 20, 2014.
