A patient who had traveled from West Africa where Ebola is endemic is being isolated at the St. Catharines hospital with flu-like symptoms. A statement from Niagara Health System chief communications officer Brady Wood confirmed they are managing and testing the patient as part of heightened vigilance. Wood said the patient is currently stable.
The doctor who treated him (the diplomat who accompanied Sawyer) became ill on 11 August. He continued treating patients at his private clinic for 2 days, operating on at least two of them. Between 13 and 16 August, he was ill enough that he stayed home, but, according to the WHO report, he received multiple visitors who came to celebrate the birth of a baby. On 16 August, he was hospitalized. He did not tell doctors there that he had been exposed to Ebola.
The WHO report is grim: “During his 6 day period of hospitalization, he was attended by the majority of the hospital’s health care staff,” it says, and members of his church community visited and performed a healing ritual that apparently involved laying on of hands. “On 21 August, he was taken to an ultrasound clinic, where 2 physicians performed an abdominal scan. He died the next day.”
