The Lagos state government yesterday October 20th announced a sum of N50million to support First Consultant hospital, Lagos in order to reduce the effect the Ebola discovery inside the hospital had on its business.

The owner of the hospital recently met the governor and complained that the incident had destroyed his business.

However, briefing newsmen at the state secretariat in Alausa, the state commissioner for health, Dr Jide Idris said;

"Having addressed the human angle in containing the outbreak, there is now the need to address the economic consequences. Under consideration are the following: Support to the affected persons including those alive and N50million lump sum as business support gesture to the First Consultant Medical Centre. This is with view to getting the people/businesses back on their feet and for businesses to re-secure patronage of their customers. It needs clearly be stated that this is not an attempt at compensation but a gesture of goodwill on the part of government."
