The authorities  of Obafemi Awolowo university have said one of its female student is suspected to be a secondary contact of Ebola.

In a statement by the public relations of the university late on Tuesday, Mr Biodun Olanrewaju, he explained that the suspected student had been evacuated to Lagos for proper attention.

It also read, “A female student of the OAU, Ile Ife who is suspected to be a secondary contact of the Ebola virus disease in Port Harcourt reported sick at the University health center, and after a clinical assessment by the Ebola Surveillance Preparedness and Response committee of the University, the authorities thereafter contacted the state ministry of health, the Federal ministry of health and the World Health Organisation (WHO), who have  since evacuated the suspected case to the appropriate facility in Lagos for further investigation to confirm her status.

Olanrewaju emphasised that though the student’s illness wasn’t a confirmed case of Ebola, protective and preventive measures had been taken. He added that the national team and the World Health Organization team on Ebola control had promptly decontaminated the university health center despite the fact that the case was yet to be confirmed and requested all members of the university to remain calm and as the situation was fully under control.
