Nigeria has confirmed its first Ebola death outside Lagos – a doctor in the oil hub of Port Harcourt.
He becomes the sixth fatality in Nigeria, which is Africa’s most populous country.
The doctor had treated a patient, who later recovered, who had met Patrick Sawyer, the man who took Ebola from Liberia to Nigeria.
West Africa’s health ministers are meeting later to discuss how to tackle the world’s most deadly Ebola outbreak.
More than 1,400 people have died – mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra.
