The Nurse does not cause the virus, she contracts the virus. Nurse Mayinga falls under the care of Dr. Margaretha Isaacson, who initially treats her while wearing a gas mask. Unable to function well in the oppressive heat, Dr. Isaacson eventually abandons the mask and treats her patient face-to-face. Despite Dr. Isaacson’s best efforts, Nurse Mayinga dies from a heart attack caused by the virus.
