Pregnant Woman Tests Positive To Ebola In Lagos

A pregnant woman who went for her usual check up at the First Consultant Hospital Obalande – same hospital that Patrick Sawyer was admitted -  is among the 9 who have tested positive to the virus, it was revealed on Friday.
She got infected after being treated by the same nurse, Obi Justina Ejelonu, who attended to the Liberian carrier, Patrick Sawyer.

It will be recalled that  two nurses came in direct contact with Mr. Sawyer and one of them died this week.Of the the two nurses, Justina is still alive.
The pregnant woman has since been quarantined at the mainland hospital where there is an isolation emergency centre for Ebola virus victims.
