Oh dear, this is sad news.

Sad news reaching us this afternoon.
One of the doctors who treated Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian Ebola Virus victim who died in Nigeria, has tested positive for the virus, according to Sahara Reporters.
Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, reportedly
revealed that two other people who are currently in quarantine, are
displaying Ebola-like symptoms. However, it is yet to be confirmed
whether they actually have the virus. 
He said a total of 70 Nigerians who came in contact with the late
Sawyer, including two other medical personnel who treated him, had been
quarantined and placed under surveillance.
“All those who had contact with the late Sawyer depending on the level
of contact are still being traced and being invited everyday and they
are placed under surveillance just to ensure that the spread of disease
is curtailed.” he said.
