Quit evicting your Liberian tenants (Some Lagos landlords have been reported to be taking this to the heights already), stop stigmatizing your East African friends or anyone known to have traveled there recently, stop this worry about hand shakes and hugs.
Don't be too quick to label as sick person as an Ebola Virus victim. Stop the cursing and stigmatization of all forms.
Let's educate ourselves about the virus, read online, ask questions and get. In the know.
Displaying horrific pictures of victims on your social networks is no way near making you a star or information guru. Spread knowledge and not ignorance.
Help Stop This Panic, panicking its in itself most dangerous. Only be sure to stay off victims at infectious stages (which is obvious even to the eyes). .....See/Google symptoms online.
I gathered you can report anyone with such persistent symptoms or suspicious feelings to the designated call centres: 08023169485, 08055329229,

AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT SYMPTOMATIC, THEY ARE NOT INFECTIOUS. -Medical Council.
No fewer than 59 people who had contacts with the Ebola virus victim who died in Lagos last week have been placed on close surveillance, the state government disclosed on Monday.
It added that the precise number of passenger contacts is yet to be ascertained due to non-cooperation of the airline that brought the victim to Lagos.
Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris, announced this yesterday at a new conference held in conjunction with Federal Ministry of Health officials at the Staff Clinic in Alausa, Ikeja.
"So far a total of 59 contacts have been registered consisting the hospital contacts, healthcare workers, laboratory staff and Airport contacts comprising three Economic Communities of West African States (ECOWAS) staff-driver, Liaison, and Protocol officer, Nigerian Ambassador to Monrovia, two Nursing staff and five Airport passenger handlers," he said.
Idris said 20 contacts had been screened with some having type one contact and others with type two contacts.
He lamented that the manifest of the ASky Airline Flight No KP50 that brought the victim into the country has not been provided by the airline.
The commissioner said an isolation ward has been designated by the Lagos State Ministry of Health at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba for case management.
"The designation of three other health facilities is underway. A total of 100 Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) were procured by the National Centre Disease Control FMOH and distributed to the private hospital and the State Ministry of Health. WHO also donated 250 PPE's to the NCDC/FMOH," he said.
He said traditional and religious leaders were alerted about the disease and requested to report promptly to health care workers.
"We can categorically state that as of today we have only one case of imported Ebola and one death. No Nigerian is infected, but all contacts are being actively followed," he said.

BlackBerry Territory Director, East, West, Central and Southern Africa, Mr Charles Asinugo, who spoke to Technology Journalists during the introduction of the new product in Lagos said with optimism that the Canadian smart phone maker was restructuring to regain its lead position in the competitive smart phone market.
He said that the introduction of the device was part of the company's restructuring mechanism to regain market lead in the smart phone ecosystem.
"The BlackBerry Z3 extends the BlackBerry 10 platform to a new generation of customers in Nigeria at an attractive price point and offers them more ways to securely communicate, collaborate and be productive with an experience built on reliable, secure communications.
"The device features a stylish design with a 5" touch display, an unrivalled messaging and typing experience, exceptional battery life, is equipped with BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.1 and is Android app compatible" , he explained.
"The core strength of BlackBerry is its security. Our devices will continue to come down in price but it does not mean that they are of low quality.
"The Nigerian market is one of the strategic markets of BlackBerry and we hope it will help us bring BlackBerry to profitability. We are back to regain the market of smart phone" he explained.
He explained that the new device was built with inbuilt battery, hence making the battery life last as long as the phone would.
"It offers them more ways to securely communicate, collaborate and be productive with an experience built on reliable, secure, communication," he said.
He further informed that the company will unveil into the smart phone ecosystem 'BlackBerry Passport' in September and 'BlackBerry Classic' in November this year respectively.

Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewellery applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled another valuable program, Romance 9.5. And then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS 5.0, MONEY 3.0 and CRICKET 4.1. What can I do?
First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: www.ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2. Then it will automatically runs the applications Jewellery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5. However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Silence 2.5 or Beer 6.1. Also DO NOT disturb the original package of Husband 1.0.... Otherwise new virus Girlfried 2.5 automatically downloaded into your system. So be careful.
In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0. We recommend: Cooking 3.0 and Cute Looks 7.7
