Dr. Stella Adadevoh’s sacrifice during the scary episode of Ebola in Nigeria has once again been recognised as Tech giant, Google made her one of their doodles in celebration of her 62nd posthumous birthday.
Doodles are changes made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.
On its Twitter handle, @googleafrica, the tech company said, “Today our #Googledoodle celebrates the life of Stella Adadevoh, the Nigerian doctor, who helped stop the spread of Ebola in the country during the 2014 outbreak.”
Naija News recalls that late Dr. Adadevoh discovered that Ebola had arrived in the country lodged in the body of the North American of Liberian origin Patrick Sawyer.
Her prompt and selfless effort saved the lives of millions of Nigerians who would have died if the diseased went out of control.
As a result of her keen perception, courage, and steadfastness, all 20 Ebola cases in Nigeria were traced to a single path of transmission originating with the first (index) patient who took a flight from Monrovia, Liberia to Lagos
