The widow of Dr. Ike Sam Enemuo, the medical practitioner who died last Friday in Port Harcourt from Ebola has contracted the deadly virus.

A medical doctor too, Dr.(Mrs.) Enemou is a nursing mother and has been quarantined alongside her three-month-old baby who is kept under close watch at the temporary quarantine site in the Oduoha Emohua Local Government Area of the state.

Her husband, late Dr. Enemuo worked with Samsteel Clinic located on the Rumuokoro axis of East-West Road and caught the Ebola Virus Disease from a patient, an Economic Community of West African States diplomat who had contact with Patrick Sawyer.

The deceased treated his patient at a hotel in Port Harcourt, and was able to restore the diplomat’s health. However, the doctor came down with disease last Tuesday and died three days later.

According to source: “He (Enemuo) fell ill next day Tuesday and died last Friday. No one knew about the hotel angle which was a very big risk he took…and unethical thing to do.

“He was ill for three days and then started vomiting blood. He was first rushed to one hospital where he was rejected and then taken to Good Heart Hospital whose owner is a Cardiologist and a consultant physician with the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital. He died there.

“The doctor that died practices in East West Road, Rumuokoro…Sam Steel clinic. The wife, also a doctor, has a three-month-old baby.

“As it is, there may have been well over 200 contacts of this devilish diplomat who lured his young doctor friend to treat him secretly and went back to Lagos. We have to look at the health workers in the Good Heart Hospital, Sam Steel Clinic, the members of staff of the hotel and its guests, those who travelled with the diplomat in the same vehicle(s) or aircraft from Lagos to Port Harcourt, the late doctor’s family members. The list goes on and on.”
