Google Doodle for Dr. Adadevoh

Search engine giant Google is marking the birthday of Ebola hero, Dr Stella Ameyo Adadevoh with a Google Doodle.

Dr Adadevoh, who was born on October 27th, 1956 prevented a wider spread of the Ebola virus in Nigeria by placing the patient, Patrick Sawyer, in quarantine despite pressures from the Liberian government.

A Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s home pages that commemorates holidays, events, achievements, and people.

Dr Ameyo Adadevoh died on August 19, 2014 through the Ebola Virus, after she single-handedly stopped late Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian-American diplomat who brought the Virus into Nigeria, from escaping from the hospital and further spreading the disease.

The Federal Government of Nigeria had posthumously honoured Dr. Adadevoh for her heroic effort in ensuring that the virus does not escalate in the country.
