The governor said that all of the confirmed cases were in stable condition.
A bright light has been shone into the darkness of the current Ebola outbreak as Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos has said that some of the patients are getting better.
Fashola disclosed this during a series of meetings with religious leaders, chairmen and health workers of the 57 local councils in the state.
“We now have 10 persons in isolation that are receiving treatment. Eight of them have been confirmed positive for the Ebola Virus Disease. We are still waiting for the results of the remaining two persons.
“All of them are stable, which means that they are not deteriorating. Five of them have really improved. This means they are fighting back. It confirms that Ebola is not an automatic death sentence if we do the right thing at the right time”
The number of cases officially on record in Nigeria has now reached 10 after the virus was brought into Lagos by Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer.
