As the deadly Ebola virus continues to ravage the African continent, the disease has now claimed at least 932 lives according to the World Health Organization(WHO).
Reports also reveal that there were 45 deaths from the deadly virus between last Saturday and this Monday in West Africa as the number of new cases rose to 108.
Meanwhile, sadly the 2nd death from the virus on Nigerian soil occured as the nurse who treated the Liberian-American who traveled to Nigeria late last month was feared dead earlier today.
Doctors and healthcare workers on the frontline have been the hardest hit during the outbreak, which continues to claim lives in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Authorities in West Africa said they were considering applying for an experimental drug used on two Americans to treat the doctor who headed Sawyer's team and is now battling the virus herself.
