The Nigerian health ministry said Monday, a Nigerian doctor has contracted Ebola after treating an American who died there last month. The doctor treated Patrick Sawyer, who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia, then collapsed after he got off a plane to Nigeria and died July 25. Sawyer, 40, was a naturalized American citizen who lived in Minneapolis and was working as a consultant for the Liberian finance ministry. Nigerian authorities took him into isolation but did not quarantine his fellow passengers, and they have insisted that the risk of additional cases was minimal.
