The Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi Araba, was thrown into panic yesterday, following the admission of two patients suspected to be infected with the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) into the hospital.

One of the patients later died after reportedly showing symptoms of the deadly disease.
Confirming the development, a resident doctor at the hospital, who pleaded anonymity, told newsmen that one of the patients was brought in on Monday by an airport ambulance after reportedly being rejected at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).

According to the doctor, the suspected case was severely ill and showed symptoms of the EVD, including high temperature, vomiting blood and stooling.

The patient, however, reportedly died, due to the severity of his illness and lack of care, as doctors and nurses reportedly fled for lack of safety equipment.

The hospital source also confirmed that a second suspected Ebola case was brought to the hospital the same day in a critical condition, while the Lagos State Government had taken away the body of the first suspected case to perform the necessary tests for confirmation of cause of death.
