Ameyo Stella Shade Adadevoh

Ameyo Adadevoh (born Ameyo Stella Shade Adadevoh; 27 October 1956 – 19 August 2014) was a Nigerian physician.

She is credited with having curbed a wider spread of the Ebola virus in Nigeria by placing the patient zero, Patrick Sawyer, in quarantine despite pressures from the Liberian government.[1][2][3] When threatened by Liberian officials who wanted the patient to be discharged to attend a conference, she resisted the pressure and said, “for the greater public good” she would not release him.[4] She is known for preventing the Nigerian index case from leaving the hospital at the time of diagnosis, thereby playing a key role in curbing the spread of the virus in Nigeria.[5] On 4 August 2014, it was confirmed that she had tested positive for Ebola virus disease and was being treated.[6] Adadevoh died in the afternoon of 19 August 2014.[7][1] She was survived by her husband Afolabi and son Bankole among other relatives.
