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

Pictured above is young, pretty Nigerian nurse- Justina Ejelonu who happened to be one of the nurses who attended to late Mr Patrick Sawyer (The Liberian man who died of Ebola Virus at a private hospital in Lagos). Justina shared this heartbreaking post on her social media handle just before she tested positive to the deadly Ebola Virus, read her words below:

“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.
