The story of how Nigeria defeated Ebola in 2014 cannot be told without Stella Adedavoh’s; the doctor who gave her life, literally to save millions of Nigerians.
Now, a film made about the heroine and her team “93 days” originally released in 2016, has been added to the growing list of Nigerian titles on Netflix.

Adadevoh led the team who oversaw the treatment of Patrick Sawyer, the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in Nigeria. Following her instincts, she stopped Sawyer from leaving the hospital to board a flight to Calabar. Even with limited information about the virus, she furnished the team with relevant information about the virus. She procured protective gear, and quickly contacted relevant officials.
Eight people in Nigeria, including Adadevoh, later died.
