BREAKING: Kaduna records first suspected case of Ebola

A 19- year old student of Law at the Ahmadu Bello University is suspected to be down with the deadly Ebola virus in Kaduna.

The Public Relations Officer, Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, ABUTH, Bilyaminu Umar, while confirming the case on Monday when contacted via phone said the student was diagnosed at ABUTH, Shika, Zaria, and that he showed some symptoms associated with the disease.

“Yes, there was a case of a suspected Ebola patient. He is with the Faculty of Law, ABU, Zaria and will be placed on isolation. I am out of town, but will confirm details on my return from a trip,” he said.

However, experts have said not all patients who manifest some symptoms of the virus end up testing positive to the disease. A definitive test will have to confirm that.

Although the ABUTH spokesperson confirmed the development, only the Federal Ministry of Health, in conjunction with the Kaduna state government, can authoritatively confirm if the case is indeed that of Ebola.

          It is better to cause panic than hide symptoms and signs and allow the problem to escalate. It is a necessary panic because they clearly stated that it is not confirmed but the symptoms are that of Ebola. Why did government closed schools if people should keep mute and allow things to get out of hand before taking action.

    May Allah arrest this deadly virus from spreading.

    This is not good news, Nigeria is battling Boko haram in the north and now this.

    • I wonder why Nigerians and West Africans are not calling for those
      deceitful men of God (e.g., Adeboye) to start laying hands on Ebola patients.

  • Anwar S Gimba

  • Maria

    Government run by propaganda cannot last.

  • WHERE IS KADUNA? WHICH COUNTRY????? The article does not even say!

    • I still don’t understand why Nigerians refuse to call on their men of God (e.g., Adeboye) to start laying hands on Ebola patients.
