LAGOS (Worthy News)-- Five days ago American Patrick Sawyer, 40, died of Ebola. However, days before his death he visited four airports and those in contact with him in Nigeria's capital Lagos airport may be at risk spreading the disease globally. Now the hunt is on for 30,000 people who may be hosting the organism which kills 60 percent of its sufferers.
The list includes anyone at one of four airports visited by American dad-of-three Sawyer, and those in contact with him in Nigeria’s capital Lagos, home to 17 million, where he died five days ago.
Mike Noyes, of Action Aid, said: “This is the worst Ebola outbreak the world has ever seen.
"The most worrying thing is not just the numbers of people dying, but how long it is going on for.
“Most outbreaks last six weeks to two months. This one began in February and is speeding up. -- Source
