student tests negative for Ebola virus - ozaragossip.wordpress.com

The management of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, confirmed that a female student of the institution who was suspected to have contracted Ebola virus and moved to Lagos State has tested negative to the virus.

The Public Relations Officer of the OAU, Mr. Abiodun Olanrewaju, said: ” The preliminary result of the girl is out and she tested negative. Another test will be done tomorrow. The university will issue a statement on this later today, 11th September, 2014.”

The female student of the university who hails from Port Harcourt, Rivers State was said to have had contact with Dr. Iyke Enemuo who died of the Ebola virus after treating an ECOWAS diplomat in a hotel room.

The OAU student was said to have been put under surveillance in Port Harcourt for 21 days before she was certified okay having tested negative to the virus.

However, on her return to the OAU to resume her studies, she took ill again on Monday and she walked to the university’s health centre where she was admitted.

Her confession to have had a contact with the late doctor and the symptoms similar to the EVD triggered rumour that she had the virus and the whole university community was thrown into panic.

Some students said the lady was bleeding and showing signs of the Ebola virus.

But the result of the second test now would calm students of the university who had been thrown into panic since she fell sick and was moved to Lagos.
