Britain has issued a serious warning to British doctors to watch for signs of the Ebola virus arriving in the UK after an infected man was allowed to board multiple international flights. Patrick Sawyer’s death in Lagos, Nigeria has sparked fear in Britain that the deadly virus could soon travel and infect populations beyond West Africa. Britain is now trying to establish whether any Briton or anyone who arrived in Britain recently sat near Sawyer or used the same toilet on one of the aircraft he took.
Sawyer flew from Liberia, stopped over in Ghana, took a transit flight in Togo and then died in Nigeria. Experts are afraid that he must have passed on the deadly infection to anybody sitting next to him on any of those flights. Dr. Brian McCloskey, director of global health at Public Health England confirmed that UK is on red alert against anybody showing any symptoms of an Ebola infection.
