Meet The Nigerian Nurse, Justina Ejelonu, Infected With Ebola Virus


Justina was one of those with the late Liberian , Mr Patrick Sawyer. She shared this post  on her social media handle just before she tested positive to the Virus,
“I never contacted his fluids .i checked his Vitals, helped him with his food.(he was too weak)…..i basically touched where his hands touched and dats d only contact. not directly wt his fluids.@a stage, he yanked off his infusion and we had blood everywhere on his bed…..but d ward maids took care of that and changed his linens with great precaution. Every patient is treated as high risk ….if it were airborne, by now wahala for dey. i still thank God. Friends, up to our uniforms n all linens were burnt off. we r on surveillance n off work till 11th.Our samples v long bn taken by WHO n so far we v been fine.
For me, kudos to my hospital managt cos we work professionally wt every patient considered risk cos that’s d training. had it been its a hospital where they manage ordinar gloves lik Govt hospital n some janjaweed private hosp..:lol….wahala for dey o.i must also thank Lagos Govt….infact! Even fed govt sef….all been supportive. im good n so r the others in d hosp…..”
She was quarantined after this post and has now tested positive to Ebola. Some Nigerians however have started an online campaign to pressurise the US government to give Justina the experimental drug Zmapp used for US doctors with Ebola.
We hope she and others with the virus survives it
