As fear spreads, Liberia orders all Ebola’s victim bodies cremated to prevent disease from spreading

August 2014AFRICA – The Liberian government is ordering that all corpses of Ebola victims must be cremated as fears rise that the disease could be spread by bodies being buried in residential areas. Information Minister Lewis Brown announced Monday on state radio that authorities now will cremate the remains of Ebola victims. The order comes after a tense standoff erupted over the weekend when health workers tried to bury more than 20 Ebola victims on the outskirts of Monrovia. Authorities said military police officers were called in to help restore order so that the burials could take place. West Africa is experiencing the largest recorded Ebola outbreak in history, with at least 729 deaths blamed on the disease. Many contracted the disease by touching the bodies of victims, as is tradition at funerals. Meanwhile, Nigeria says it has a second Ebola case – that of one of the doctors who treated a man who died from Ebola after his arrival from Liberia. This year’s outbreak, the worst ever, has centered on Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, killing 887 people. It spreads by contact with infected blood and bodily fluids – and touching the body of someone who has died of Ebola is particularly dangerous.
Nigeria’s Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said that 70 people have been traced who came into contact with the man who died there, Patrick Sawyer, eight of whom are now in isolation. Sawyer, an employee of the Liberian finance ministry, had arrived in Lagos from Monrovia after changing planes in Togo’s capital, Lome, on 20 July and died five days later in quarantine. As part of efforts to help contain the outbreak, the US says it is planning to send at least 50 public health experts within the next 30 days. The BBC’s Jonathan Paye-Layleh in the capital, Monrovia, says cremation is not part of the culture in Liberia and health experts say burial ceremonies have played a role in the transmission of the virus. Liberia’s Information Minister Lewis Brown made the announcement on state radio about cremations after an incident over the weekend when a community refused to allow the burial of some bodies, most of them Ebola victims. -–ABC BBC

    I’ve been reading a lot on all of this recently and this is a downward spiral in effect. The people in Africa who are becoming infected don’t know enough about the virus and I’ve found out that a part of their tradition is kissing the dead body of the deceased. Imagine hundreds of friends or family members of a newly deceased loved one, kissing the infected body before burial. That is a spread right there😦 There are also many who are not taking the virus as serious as it truly is. I’ve read that the virus comes from the fruit bat and horribly there are some villagers of the population who eat fruit bat >:() It’s a shame and it’s going to be very difficult virus to contain from spreading. We now have brought it here to our country and I’m reading that the National Institute of Health wants will begin the anti virus trial testing mid next month on humans here in our country. THAT IS A MISTAKE IN THE MAKING! Here is that link http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/07/31/ebola-vaccine-trial/13404609/ You need to create the virus in the body through these vaccinations so that the body can build up to fight it. I see a horror movie in the making with this news as there may be a possible backfire because of the severity of the deadly virus. It is HORRIBLE NEWS and I’m praying and praying with hopes for a more positive outcome than what I sense is on the way😦

    I know many of you may have read or seen picture of casket liners stocked in fields over the years and many people have blogged their opinions of this. Two states mentioned was Georgia and Alabama: Probably more.

    This is my main point: The number of deaths could be so overwhelming that casket availability will be like water is in the desert. If you look at cremation during the time of a plague, actually it is the best way to kill the disease. yes, many Americans are horrified to think they would be cremated or more horrified to see their loved ones cremated. Mass cremations.

    Could this happen here? It is possible.

    “During an outbreak of the Black Death in 1656, for example, the bodies of 60,000 victims were burned in Naples during a single week.”
