ATLANTA (CNN) — Another country has reported that one of its citizens died from Ebola — bringing the overall death toll in West Africa closer to 900.

A Nigerian nurse died after helping care for an Ebola patient, the country’s Ministry of Health said Wednesday. The nurse was part of the medical staff that treated a Liberian-American man who had traveled to Nigeria and died.

Nigeria has also confirmed another five cases of Ebola, the Health Ministry said.
