Body of Ebola Victim in Lagos Cremated



Ebola Victim - July 2014 - BN News - 01
The body of the man who died from Ebola Virus Disease in Lagos, Nigeria on Friday, has been cremated.

According to Vanguard, the details of the cremation were not made available but officials of the Lagos Sate Ministry of Health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), witnessed the cremation.

The World Health Organisation notes that cremation is ideal for safe disposal of bodies of persons who die during outbreaks of highly infectious diseases including Ebola in order to  minimise further transmission.

      Easy.. He might have thought coming to Nigeria will save or give him a better health care than what they have in his country since many are dying in his part.. It might not have been intentional but unfortunately he has exposed Nigeria to the deadly virus.

      Edwin or whatever you call yourself. Your comment , May his soul R.I.Pieces shows how shallow you are. How was he wicked? If you’ve been reading about the disease its sypmtoms are just like malaria, typhoid or cholera! Bad enough he had to die an excruciating death. Its people like you that make the world a sad place. Fortunately it isnt up to you how his soul rests. Nonsense fellow like you!

      God truly needs to be our Help, indeed. With everything else we’re battling as a country, the uncontrollable spread of a deadly virus doesn’t need to be added to that list.

    so sad for him, noone wishes a end like this for themselves. Away from family , isolated from even health workers then cremated not even a proper burial because of a virus

    Wow, I guess it’s time to start sensitizing the Nigerian public about Ebola.!!!
    Also some comments are just insensitive. He was already scheduled for a conference here and probably did not know his status. (The first symptoms of Ebola mimic a flu, malaria or typhoid).
    Comments are also insensitive to the other countries struggling with the epidemic. Two of which only recently emerged from long drawn out civil wars.
    Please know that Nigerians also travel to those countries everyday for work. What with at least 10 Nigerian banks having operations across West Africa. It really could have been anyone!
    Please get educated and please be kind.
