“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 stated.

Adadevoh, born in 1956, worked for 21 years at the First Consultants Medical Centre in Lagos where the first case of Ebola virus was discovered in Nigeria following the diagnosis of a Liberian Patrick Sawyer.
