Ebola: Quarantined OAU Female Student Confesses Contact With Dr. Enemuo

According to The Punch, there was panic at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife yesterday over a report that a female patient on admission at the OAU Health Centre was a suspected Ebola Virus Disease victim. The university’s management initially denied the reports,but the Oyo State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Temitope Ilori, Ilori said the female student who fell sick confessed she had contact with the Late Dr Iyke Enemuo who secretly treated a sick ECOWAS diplomat in a Port Harcourt hotel.

“I was told that a student of the OAU who had contact with the doctor who died of the Ebola virus in Port Harcourt walked into the health centre when she was sick.

She was said to have told doctors at the health centre that she had contact with the Port Harcourt doctor and was put under surveillance but she said she tested negative that time.“Now she returned to the OAU to continue with her studies and was sick.

She was said to have walked to the health centre and told them everything about her contact with the doctor.Her blood sample has been taken for another test in Lagos and we are awaiting the result. We pray she is not positive but she has been isolated at the health centre.”

As at the time of this report, it was gathered that the female student has been moved to an Ebola  Isolation centre in Lagos state
