Dr Ameyo Stella Adadevoh was an exemplary Nigerian physician who is credited with having curbed a wider spread of the Ebola virus in Nigeria by placing the patient zero, Patrick Sawyer in quarantine despite pressures from the Liberian Government.
On 4 August 2014, it was confirmed that she tested positive for the Ebola virus strain and was being treated. Adadevoh died in the afternoon of 19 August 2014. Dr Adadevoh is worthy of recognition as a true Nigerian heroine as she stands testament to all that is best about Nigeria; conscientiousness, professionalism, hard-work, bravery and sacrifice. Her timely actions allowed the country's other government agencies to initiate the actions that went on to save possibly thousands of lives in the Ebola outbreak, which has since earned Nigeria the respect of the international community as an exemplar of how to contain a virulent disease.
