Tech Giant, Google has dedicated a doodle to late Nigerian Medic, Stella Adadevoh, on her 62nd posthumous birthday.
A Google doodle is a change made on Google’s homepage to commemorate achievements, anniversaries, famous people and events.
“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,” Google said in a statement on twitter.
Adadevoh who worked as a doctor with First Consultant Hospital, Ikoyi, Lagos is remembered for curbing the spread of Ebola Virus in Nigeria by placing Patrick Sawyer, in quarantine despite pressure from the Liberian government to release him, saying it is “for the greater public good”
As a result of her doggedness, 20 ebola patients were traced to a single source and quarantined. A move which prevented a major outbreak in the country .
