Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American who carried Ebola to Nigeria, has now killed a total of six people. He’s long dead but the aftermath of his choice to fly to Lagos while ill lives on.
Over this past weekend, Samaritan’s Purse announced that an American physician serving with that charity in Liberia has been diagnosed with Ebola. Dr. Kent Brantly is the Medical Director for the Samaritan’s Purse Ebola Consolidated Case Management Center in Monrovia, Liberia. He has been in the country since October and was doing post-doc work before the outbreak of illnesses began.
