The federal government Sunday in Abuja denied media reports miscontruing a female doctor discharged and declared free from the Ebola virus to another medical doctor, Dr Adadevor.

According to a statement by the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu and signed by the Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Dan Nwomeh,  the government said the misconception and error mistook the female doctor for Adadevor.

Nwomeh in the statement said “it has been brought to the attention of the Honourable Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu that the first Nigerian to be diagnosed of Ebola Virus Disease, a female doctor who treated the index case and who was discharged home from the ward yesterday,  is being reported in some section of the media to be one Dr. Adadevor.”

“The Honourable Minister wishes to clarify that the name of the patient is not Dr.  Adadevor.   This should be noted. The minister's statement yesterday while indicating that it was a female doctor did not indicate the name of the patient,” the statement said.
