It’s been less than a week since Dr. Samuel Enemou passed away in Port Harcourt after contracting Ebola, and now reports have it that a second death has been recorded in the garden city.

According to a report by TheCableNG:

Dan Nwomeh, special assistant on media and communication to the minister of health, said the latest victim died at an isolation ward in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers state, having contracted the disease while receiving treatment at the hospital where a doctor died on August 22.

The deceased is said to be an elderly woman who had other health issues, including a heart condition. This brings the number of death from the Ebola virus in Nigeria to 7 including the index case.

Right now there are only reported cases of the virus in Lagos and Port Harcourt where the Federal Ministry has stressed that they have it under control.
