Fwd: Ebola

'The outbreak began in Nigeria when a Liberian man, Patrick Sawyer, who had been nursing a sick relative at home, flew to Lagos on 20 July, against medical advice. He became ill on the plane and collapsed at the airport, but was treated for malaria because he did not reveal he had been in contact with the disease.

It took three days, during which time nine medical staff nursing him became infected, before Ebola was diagnosed and he was placed in isolation. He died two days later.
