Ebola spreads to Sierra Leone’s capital of Freetown: WHO gravely concerned deadly virus could go global

July 2014DISEASE – The worst outbreak of Ebola moved to Sierra Leone’s capital of Freetown where an Egyptian was found with the city’s first confirmed case of the disease. The unidentified Egyptian national had traveled from Kenema, the largest city in the nation’s Eastern Province, and checked into a clinic east of Freetown, Sidie Yahya Tunis, director of Information, Communication and Technology at the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, said by phone today. The person was moved back to the Ebola center in Kenema, he said. “The Ebola disease usually spreads to other places when suspected or confirmed cases in one community move to another, they abandon treatment centers to stay with relatives or they seek treatment outside the Ebola centers,” Tunis said. There have been 99 Ebola deaths in Sierra Leone out of 315 laboratory-confirmed cases, the ministry said in an e-mailed statement today. The ministry said yesterday that 92 people had died out of 305 cases. Cases of the hemorrhagic fever have killed more than 540 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia in an outbreak that according to the World Health Organization may last another three to four months. The toll is greater than the 280 people killed in 1976, when the virus was first identified near the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. The rapid spread of the virus is largely due to people moving across borders as well as cultural practices that are contrary to public health guidelines, such as people touching the body of a deceased relative before the funeral. –Bloomberg
WHO concerned Ebola could go global: The spread of killer Ebola continues unabated in West Africa. The three countries that are battling the killer virus is Sierra Leone, Liberia and to a lesser extent in Guinea. Confirming the rise in cases of Ebola in these countries, the World Health Organization has expressed a cause of concern over combined 44 new cases and 21 deaths between July 6 and 8. Till now 888 people have suffered from the deadly viral disease and of them 539 have died since February. The WHO said: “The epidemic trend in Liberia and Sierra Leone remains precarious with high numbers of new cases and deaths being reported.” How seriously the outbreak of the disease is being taken could be understood from the fact that recently a meeting was held in Ghana in which top states representatives, experts and doctors had participated to find out ways to control the disease from spilling to other parts of the world. The disease has been categorized as dangerous as it causes vomiting and diarrhea that later on damages kidney. Besides, the killer virus also has a debilitating impact on liver function casing internal and external bleeding. Chances of survival are just 10 per cent with the killer disease causing vomiting and diarrhea.  Also, the virus damages kidney and liver, causing internal and external bleeding. –NVO News

    That the clinic in the video has reduced the mortality rate from 90 to 37 percent (on its grounds, at least) is encouraging; in remote villages and outlying areas, such gains may not be possible, but the treatment IS working. God be with them!

    Ebola is a VERY REAL threat to the whole world, even the USA.
    Airplane travel, 2 weeks incubation period, anyone could be carrying it.
    The thousands of illegals invading the USA are spreading many serious diseases, some of those are hemorrhagic fever(s).
