Dr Adadevoh was the Nigerian doctor who oversaw the treatment of Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian national who brought the Ebola virus to Nigeria. She died of the virus on 19 August 2014, one of eight fatalities out of 20 cases (each linked to Sawyer) in the country. Without her dedication, the disease would have spread across Nigeria and many more people would have died from Ebola. The significance of her actions, and those of her hospital colleagues, cannot be overstated.
