Ebola Man Was Scheduled To Fly To America, Only His Death Saved Us

  Patrick Sawyer died in Lagos today. He was scheduled to fly to America later in the month.


According to the Voice of Nigeria, the Liberian man who was being tested for the Ebola virus in Lagos has died.

Patrick Sawyer, who reportedly gave up the ghost today, had been quarantined in a hospital after falling ill and was the first case of the disease to be reported in the country.

40-year-old Sawyer, a WASH consultant at the Ministry of Finance, is said to have arrived in Lagos for a conference last Sunday.

The development was reportedly disclosed by a Liberian government official who chose to remain anonymous. He also added that the news was received from the Nigerian Embassy this morning.

Mr. Sawyer is believed to have contracted the disease from his sister who died three weeks ago.

Ebola has been responsible for the deaths of 660 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak in February
