    The doctor who was supposed to treat him is stupid. How does a 7 year old baby contract EBOLA? Through his caretakers! Of course the baby doesn’t have ebola. Which ebola patient did he come in contact with? If he had it, his parents would have it as well. So they would have to be tested. This was such a stupid non-issue. Thank God he is ok though. Poor cutie has his face plastered on the internet because of a doctor’s stupid zealousness.

    How would the baby have contracted the virus? Did Patrick Sawyer or any of his primary contacts touch the baby. They really need to stop “suspecting” Ebola at the slightest symptom of illness, especially when there’s no probable contact with infected people. It just breeds fear! In any case, thank God for his faithfulness!

    How is this great news? This baby never had ebola in the first place. It is not like the baby came in contact with an infected person and was miraculously infection free. U people helped to propagate a culture of fear. Just dispel the rumour and move on in peace. Great news kwa

    it is easy to condemn the doctor that made the diagnosis of ‘ebola like disease” in this child, but if the matron/doctors that managed patric sawyer had been just more alert, the casualties would have been minimal. i still encourage suspicion in everyone that shows features consistent with ebola. the disease is too deadly to be ignored.

      OMG.. “if they had been more alert.”… Patrck Sawyer, an American citizen, and diplomat, knew he had Ebola but was more interested in attending an Ecowas meeting in Calabar and getting his PER DIEM money…even after being held at the hospital ‘against his will’ for further testing, his ‘homies’ put a lot of pressure on the hospital doctors to get him out!

      Unlike the victims of `Ebola in Liberia, those in Nigeria are health officials that came into contact with this selfish man!! A lot of work went into tracing all individuals who came into contact with him in airport/plane and isolating/putting them in quarantine immediately. cant do better than that !!!

      the casualties are MINIMal….
