0

ABUJA: Nigeria was on alert against the possible spread of Ebola on Saturday (Sunday in Manila), a day after the first confirmed death from the virus in Lagos, Africa’s biggest city and the country’s financial capital. The health ministry said on Friday that a 40-year-old Liberian man died at a private hospital in Lagos from the disease, which has now killed more than 650 people in four west African countries since January—the deadliest outbreak in history.
