Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian Finance Ministry employee who contracted Ebola and boarded a flight in Liberia and stopped in Ghana and Togo before reaching Nigeria, died Friday, according to the Associated Press. World Health Organization workers are scrambling to find out if others came into close contact with the man while he was traveling. Sawyer’s sister had succumbed to the illness.
