Suspected Ebola case in Kaduna, blood test result negative


Culled from a Premium Times report, “The 19-year old law student of the Ahmadu Bello University [ABU] suspected to manifest some symptoms of the Ebola Virus Disease [EVD] has tested negative to the virus.

Authorities of ABU and the Kaduna State Government had sent the patient’s blood to Lagos for testing after he reportedly manifested some symptoms associated with Ebola while on admission at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital [ABUTH].

The state Commissioner For Health, Thot Dogo, had told Premium Times Tuesday night that the result of the test was being expected on Wednesday afternoon (today). But Ebola Alert, an authoritative evidence-driven group of volunteer professionals working on Ebola Virus Disease interventions in the country, told this newspaper laboratory test has shown the student does not have the virus.

An official of the group, who simply identified himself as Ladi, said the test, concluded earlier on Tuesday night, came out negative.”
