Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian man suspected with the deadly Ebola virus, has been reported died.
Reports say Patrick died Thursday night at the First Consultant Medical Centre, Obalende, in Lagos where he was hospitalized.
Sawyer only arrived Nigeria on Sunday July 20 for a conference when he came down with symptoms of the virus.
TV360 spoke with a Virologist who is very much familiar with the case and a member of the the national task force on Ebola virus, Professor Sunday Omilabu. He gave an insight as to how the Liberian man died and why Nigeria should worry about the dreaded virus, which kills many times faster than AIDS.

Heard about the ebola virus several years ago in a microbiology class . Didn't think much about it . But now it's just crazy. Heard that they were trying to see if antibodies produced by an infected person( that recovered from the disease) could be used to cure the disease.

How about those people you don't know about!

Ebola reminds me of the bubonic plague in Europe centuries ago. Why didn't you mention in your video, that a United States Citizen, Patrick Sawyer, due back in 2 days in his hometown of Minnesota where he lives with his wife and children, came out of the stupid country of Liberia, flew on an American passport through two connecting flights, to visit the far away country of Nigeria.  He was intercepted at the Lagos airport.  Why don't you mention that?  Nigeria pretty much took the bullet Patrick Sawyer was bringing to the U.S.A.  He is the person you are talking about who landed in Lagos, Nigeria with Ebola. He pissed at the health workers when told he had Ebola.  

Arty Kohl says:

I wonder if this hospital is still operational, in the wake of the collapses in recent, hours.

Shellie Robledo says:

I would like to see you speak a foreign complex language and English perfectly! Lol. English is the most complicated language and if it's not your first language imagine that!

Lagos has lots of foreign petroleum workers coming and going.  A crisis in Lagos can easily become an international crisis.
