#Wikidata - Ameyo Adadevoh a physician from #Nigeria

When a Mr Sawyer arrived in Lagos and showed symptoms of ebola, Mrs Adedevoh took control of the situation and thanks to her efforts ebola was largely contained. In the end it did not save her; as a physician in the frontline of the fight against ebola she became a victim herself.

Mrs Adadevoh is another hero of our times. When you google about ebola and Nigeria, there are two things that are of interest; sadly there are the opinion pieces that see a conspiracy in the coming of Mr Sawyer to Nigeria but more positive is the information about the efforts to contain ebola in Nigeria and what it is that you can do to become infected; personal hygiene is key.

There is a call to ensure that hospital staff are immunised. It is quite obvious that no country can really afford to lose key people like Mrs Adadevoh. It is equally obvious that all doctors and nurses who have to deal with ebola patients need to be protected. Without them containing and treating ebola is impossible.
