Nigeria reported two new cases of Ebola virus Friday, days after the government expressed hope that the country could soon be Ebola-free.

Both are spouses of two patients who had direct contact with Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian American who brought Ebola into the country, according to a statement by the Nigerian Ministry of Health.

Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said Tuesday that Nigeria could be Ebola-free within a week, with the only two known cases in isolation in Lagos, Bloomberg reported.
