There is Ebola confusion in the isolation centre. The Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, announced on Monday that four additional confirmed cases of Ebola Virus Disease, including two male medical doctors and one female nurse, are now free of the disease and have therefore been discharged.

In a statement distributed by Dan Nwomeh, his Special Assistant on Media and Communication, the Minister explained that the three participated in the treatment of the index case while the fourth person was a female patient at the time the index was on admission.

He said “this brings to five the total number of patients diagnosed with Ebola Virus Disease who have now been discharged from hospital.”
But the Minister made no reference to a nurse in Lagos who tested positive for the infection in Lagos on Monday. Anonymous sources said the female nurse, referred to as “Nkechi,” had been under quarantine.

According to Sahara Reporters, Doctors monitoring Nurse “Nkechi” said she initially tested negative and had been cleared to leave the center but she then suddenly developed high temperatures, and fresh tests showed she still had the virus.

This development brings into question when a negative test becomes final. I hope someone is not fooling us?
