Nigeria on Monday confirmed a new case of Ebola in the financial capital Lagos, bringing the total number of people in the country with the virus to 10.
Health minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said the latest confirmed case was a female nurse who came into contact with a Liberian-American man, Patrick Sawyer, who died of Ebola in a Lagos hospital on July 25.
The World Health Organization has declared the Ebola outbreak an international public health emergency – its highest-level alert possible, Friday.
"The possible consequences of further international spread are particularly serious in view of the virulence of the virus," the UN health agency said in a statement, following a two day meeting in their headquarters in Geneva.
Patient Isolated Under Suspicion of Having Ebola
On the Infectious disease clinic in Belgrade, the very first patient was admitted under suspicion of having Ebola virus. Nevertheless, after further analysis, it was confirmed that the patient only has pneumonia.
