Ebola Health Workers Scared, Flee Hospitals

PUNCH   in 
August 18, 2014

Afraid of contracting the Ebola virus, health workers at the Yaba Mainland Hospital, Lagos have been running away from patients isolated in the hospital, thus putting intense pressure on the few ones still treating victims.

Impeccable sources at the hospital told Saturday PUNCH that health workers in the hospital were also being pressured by family members to resign their appointments with the establishment.

Some of them are already avoiding the patients like a plague. As a result of this development, hospital sources said the few health workers available have been working for 24 hours in order to take care of patients in the isolated area.
