Nigeria’s Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu has announced that two people who had “primary contact” with Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian man who died of Ebola in Lagos last week, have been quarantined and 69 placed under medical surveillance.

AFP reports that Mr Chukwu told reporters in Abuja:

“We are tracking all those with primary contact with a view to deciding those who must be quarantined and those who will just remain under surveillance. As at today 69 are under surveillance and two quarantined,” he said, adding that “they will remain under the surveillance until a period of three weeks at least”.

Spread by close contact with an infected person through bodily fluids such as sweat, blood and tissue, Ebola can fell victims within days, causing severe fever and muscle pain, vomiting and diarrhoea — and in some cases, organ failure and unstoppable bleeding.
