He also said that another patient who was also diagnosed of chronic pelvic ulcer with symptoms related with that of Ebola had tested negative to #Ebola by the state response team.

He according to #Punch said Nasarawa had no recorded case of the #EVD.

Also, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Emmanuel Akabe, there was nothing like Ebola virus disease in the state.
