By The Associated Press February 21, 2019 06:18:26More than 300 Niger Delta citizens have died from the Ebola outbreak, the latest in a string of infections.
The latest deaths are in a community of about 200,000 people in the southern city of Lagos.
The toll is still rising, and the latest death is just the latest to raise the death toll.
The Associated Post has been unable to independently verify the deaths, but there is evidence that they occurred.
The AP has not been able to independently confirm the deaths because the case of the first reported case is still being investigated.
The deaths come as the U.S. is seeking $1 billion to help the region recover from the epidemic.
The United States has sent $6.5 million in food, medicine and other aid to Nigeria, but the U-S.
has been criticized by some of its allies and partners over the delays in delivering aid.
