For the first three days after his death, the identity of the first Ebola victim on Nigerian soil remained a closely guarded secret.

However, this afternoon the man was identified as Patrick Sawyer. The accompanying photo, courtesy of KSTP and currently trending online, is that of Mr. Sawyer and his wife.

A Liberian-American, late Patrick Sawyer was a consultant to the Liberian Ministry of Finance. He fell sick while flying into Lagos from Monrovia last Thursday, July 24, reportedly vomiting and having diarrhea. He was admitted in a private hospital on arrival in Lagos, where he died Friday morning.

As reported this morning by News Express, late Mr. Sawyer’s body has been cremated, the hospital temporarily closed after being … and 59 people so far identified as coming into contact with Mr. Sawyer being tested and watched.

Ebola, which presently as no cure, can cause people to bleed from the eyes, mouth and ears. It requires direct contact with bodily fluids such as urine, blood or saliva before one can contact it.
