True Hero: A Tribute to Dr. Adadevoh


Medic-ALL (20:08:2014)
As we mourn the death of Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, the Nigerian Consultant physician who passed on last night after having contracted the dreaded Ebola Virus from the Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer, it has been revealed that she indeed did a heroic job for the country when she forced the Nigerian Patient Zero, Sawyer, to his bed after he attempted to escape from the hospital .

Report says Dr. Adadevoh was infected when she forcefully restricted Mr. Patrick Sawyer to his bed after he tried to remove the intravenous giving set administered on him.
That one action, according to experts saved many Nigerian lives because, if Sawyer had succeeded in forcing himself out of the hospital, it would have been nearly impossible to trace those who had contact with him.
Dr. Adadevoh died at an isolation centre where she had been quarantined alongside other doctors and nurses who treated Sawyer at First Consultants Hospital, Obalende, Lagos.
Reports earlier in the week  had suggested that she had survived the disease and had been discharged from quarantine, until the Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu issued a statement clarifying that she was not the survivor.

Her passing on brings the total number of deaths from the Ebola virus to five in Nigeria.
Our sincere condolences go out to her entire family. She is survived by her husband and kids.
