Scaling out and scaling up: Improving in West Africa
EBOLA PRAYER REQUEST UPDATE " Ebola continues to ravage Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, causing a humanitarian crisis in West Africa. Not only has the disease claimed 1,350 lives, but it has disrupted almost every aspect of life. More and more countries are restricting travel to slow the spread, with Liberia taking the drastic measure of instructing its soldiers to “shoot on sight” anyone illegally crossing the border from neighboring Sierra Leone. The confusion has also disrupted supplies lines within the countries, making food and medicine more difficult to find. An Ebola Outbreak starts from contact between a human and an animal, where the human is exposed to infected fluids or tissue, possibly through eating the meat or being bitten. The disease then spreads from human to human through contact. Scientists think fruit bats are the disease’s natural host, but many different animals, such as monkeys, can be carriers. The disease is thought to have started in a jungle area of Guinea, near the bor ...
UPDATED: Aug 25, 2014 04:58 GMT Congo is reporting Ebola cases in a northern town, sparking fears that the deadly virus is expanding far beyond West Africa. Two people in Gera town in the Democratic Republic of Congo tested positive for Ebola, a government spokesman said Sunday. A lab and quarantine station have been set up in the town, which is about 750 miles from the capital of Kinshasa. The World Health Organization said that the nation did its own tests, and the U.N. agency's lab is conducting its own confirmation testing that will also determine the strain of the virus found. Congo said its test showed the strain is different from the one that has killed nearly 1,500 people in the West African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. Experts have described the West African outbreak as the worst in the history of the virus. Ebola first appeared in 1976 in Sudan and Congo, and takes its name from a river with the same name in the latter nation. Congo, which is in Central Africa, has had s ...

VIDEO: Why Ebola is so dangerous. The disease explained in 60 seconds. Please share... -OFW Admins - Ebola Virus Infection Ebola is a rare but deadly infection that causes bleeding inside and outside the body. Although popular movies and books describe major outbreaks of ebola-like disease in the U.S., they're just works of fiction. Ebola strikes mainly in remote villages of Central and West Africa, but it has spread to some African cities, too. The disease, also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever or Ebola Virus disease, kills up to 90% of people who are infected. So far serious Ebola cases have only shown up in Africa. Ebola can spread from country to country when people travel. So it is possible for Ebola to reach the U.S. if someone who is infected travels here on a plane. But there are safety measures in place to prevent people from coming to U.S. airports with the disease. Airline crews are trained to spot the symptoms of Ebola in passengers flying from places where the virus is found. Crews are told t ...

The Ebola Outbreak has claimed more than 1000 lives and the World Health Organisation says its scale is 'vastly underestimated.' How to protect yourself against Ebola - AFP West Africa is grappling with the largest outbreak of Ebola Virus in history, and concerns are mounting that the hemorrhagic fever could spill across international borders. Here is some advice from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on how people can protect themselves against Ebola. Symptoms of Ebola include fever, headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, lack of appetite and in some cases bleeding. "Transmission is through direct contact with bodily fluids of an infected person, or exposure to objects such as needles that have been contaminated with infected secretions," said Stephan Monroe, deputy director of the CDC's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases. "Ebola is not contagious until symptoms appear." The Ebo ...
More countries tighten controls over Ebola Today's News Fri, 22 Aug 2014 More countries have tightened restrictions for travellers originating from Ebola-affected countries. Modipe Nkwe, manager of Public Affairs for the Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana, denied that the country had closed its borders to travellers from Ebola-affected countries, but both the African Travel And Tourism Association (ATTA) and Botswana Tourism have reported that travellers from Ebola-affected areas were being turned away at the airport. According to Modipe, Botswana’s airports are currently performing thorough health checks for travellers from West Africa on entry into the country. He said: “This may cause some delay, hence we kindly request that travellers exercise some patience as this is an important public health intervention to prevent cases coming into the country. Any inconvenience that this may cause is highly regrettable.” However, ATTA reported earlier this week that an SA-based tour operator travelling w ...
West Point residents say they need to leave the slum to buy food and go to work Continue reading the main story Ebola Outbreak Economic 'devastation' Life on front line Why so dangerous? Mapping the outbreak Police in Liberia's capital, Monrovia, have fired live rounds and tear gas during protests after a quarantine was imposed to contain the spread of the deadly Ebola Virus.

Liberia has seen the most deaths - 576 - in the world's worst Ebola Outbreak, which has hit West Africa this year. A total of 1,350 have died in four countries - Guinea, Nigeria and Sierra Leone, as well as Liberia.

Credit: Reuters/2Tango Related Topics Health » (Reuters) - Police in the Liberian capital fired live rounds and tear gas on Wednesday to disperse a stone-throwing crowd trying to break an Ebola quarantine imposed on their neighbourhood, as the death toll from the epidemic in West Africa hit 1,350. In the sprawling oceanfront West Point neighbourhood of Monrovia, at least four people were injured in clashes with security forces, witnesses said. It was unclear whether anyone was wounded by the gunfire, though a Reuters photographer saw a young boy with his leg largely severed just above the ankle. Liberian authorities introduced a nationwide curfew on Tuesday and put the West Point neighbourhood under quarantine to curb the spread of the disease. "The soldiers are using live rounds," said army spokesman Dessaline Allison, adding: "The soldiers applied the rules of engagement. They did not f ...

West Africa: What are US Biological Warfare Researchers Doing in the Ebola Zone? This is a call for an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of Tulane University researchers (see here and here) and their Fort Detrick associates in the US biowarfare research community, who have been operating in West Africa during the past several years. What exactly have they been doing? Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone? Why do we have reports that the government of Sierra Leone has recently told Tulane researchers to stop this testing? Have Tulane researchers and their associates attempted any experimental treatments (e.g., injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred? The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia—said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola Outbreak—has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as biowe ...

Ebola is the virus that causes Ebola Virus disease. Ebola Virus disease is a serious illness that causes viral hemorrhagic fever and is deadly in up to 90 percent of cases. Ebola damages blood vessel walls and inhibits the blood from clotting. This results in internal bleeding that can be life-threatening. Ebola Outbreaks have garnered serious attention as there is no known treatment, vaccine, or cure for the disease. These outbreaks have primarily affected people in tropical regions of Central and West Africa. Ebola is typically transmitted to humans through close contact with the bodily fluids of infected animals. It is then transmitted between humans through contact with blood and other bodily fluids. It can also be picked up through contact with contaminated fluids in an environment. Ebola symptoms include fever, diarrhea, rash, vomiting, dehydration, impaired kidney and liver function, and internal bleeding. Ebola Virus Structure Ebola is a single-stranded, negative RNA virus that belongs to the viru ...

All 365 of Sierra Leone’s Ebola-related deaths pinned on one healer Published time: August 20, 2014 16:58 Get short URL Reuters / Tarik Jasarevic Tags Africa, Health,Medicine Sierra Leone’s Ebola crisis has been traced back to a single healer in an isolated border village, who had claimed to be in possession of special powers to cure the deadly disease that started penetrating the border, it has emerged. “She was claiming to have powers to heal Ebola. Cases from Guinea were crossing into Sierra Leone for treatment,” top medical official, Mohamed Vandi, who was based in the crisis-struck Kenema district, told AFP. “She got infected and died. During her funeral, women around the other towns got infected,” he told the agency. The woman was based in the eastern border village of Sokoma. Mourners at the funeral of the healer prompted a chain reaction of sorts, and what was initially a more confined outbreak materialized into a severe epidemic when, in June, the virus struck a city of 190,000 called ...

Ebola-affected countries should immediately begin exit screening all passengers leaving international airports, sea ports and major ground crossings, the U.N. health agency said on Monday. The agency didn't spell out which countries should start screening passengers, but noted that the Ebola Outbreak involves transmission in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leona and a "small number of people in Nigeria." All countries, even those unaffected by the outbreak in West Africa, need to strengthen their ability to detect and immediately contain new cases without doing anything that unnecessarily interferes with international travel or trade, the agency said. But countries don't need to impose travel restrictions and active screening of passengers if they do not share borders with Ebola-affected countries, it said. Authorities in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea say they are already closely inspecting departing passengers for signs of fever or illness. The risk of the Ebola Virus being transmitted during air travel is ...

What's Ebola...? Ebola Virus disease (EVD) or Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) is a disease of humans and other primates caused by an ebolavirus. Symptoms start two days to three weeks after contracting the virus, with a fever, sore throat, muscle pain and headaches. Typically, vomiting, diarrhea and rash follow, along with decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys. Around this time, affected people may begin to bleed both within the body and externally.[1] The virus may be acquired upon contact with blood or bodily fluids of an infected animal.[1] Spreading through the air has not been documented in the natural environment.[2] Fruit bats are believed to carry and spread the virus without being affected. Once human infection occurs, the disease may spread between people, as well. Male survivors may be able to transmit the disease via semen for nearly two months. To make the diagnosis, typically other diseases with similar symptoms such as malaria, cholera and other viral hemorrhagic fevers are first exc ...
Liberia: Not So Fast - Ebola Trial Drug Trumpeted in Liberia Is 'Pesticide' Monrovia — A trial drug introduced in Liberia as a possible cure for the deadly Ebola Virus is nothing more than a pesticide which was recently rejected by health authorities in Nigeria. A group under the banner Concerned Citizens of Liberia chaired by Mr. Nathaniel Blama a Montserrado County Senatorial candidate told a news conference last weekend that it had secured a Product "Nano Silver" that they feel can be used to deactivate the Ebola Virus if given to a patient of Ebola. The group claimed that it had found a solution for the Ebola Virus that has killed hundreds of people they discovered a Nutrient call Nano Silver. Blama said: "Nano Silver, from our research, has shown that it has the power to cure lots of illnesses and diseases, including the ability to deactivate the Ebola Virus." The Nutrient according to Blama is made up of crystal mineral water and Macro Particles of refined silver. The Nutrient, he said, is nontoxi ...

you ever wondered where the Irish get their light skin color from? Well, it appears we may now have the answer.     A major new US study at Penn State University has found that Europeans' light skin stems from a gene mutation from a single person who lived 10,000 years ago. Scientists made the discovery after identifying a key gene that contributes to lighter skin color in Europeans, and the Irish fall into this category. The Mail Online reports that, in earlier research, Keith Cheng from Penn State College of Medicine reported that one amino acid difference in the gene SLC24A5 is a key contributor to the skin color difference between Europeans and West Africans. This is undoubtedly where the Irish get their light skin from. "The mutation in SLC24A5 changes just one building block in the protein, and contributes about a third of the visually striking differences in skin tone between peoples of African and European ancestry," he said. Cheng and his team studied segments of genetic code that have a mutati ...

Ebola: How Providence, Tact Saved Nigeria From Catastrophe By Olaolu When the Americo-Liberian man, Patrick Sawyer undertook his now famous flight into the country from his native country, little did Nigerians know that an unwanted death carrier had landed. Sawyer, whose visit to the country had become controversial, was billed to attend a function of the regional organisation, Economic Commission of West Africa (ECOWAS), in Nigeria later checked into a Lagos hospital for treatment of a less known ailment, Ebola Fiver. The care centre, First Consultants Hospital, a private medical centre has had the unenviable fortune of being the first port of call for the dreaded disease currently ravaging the West African region in the country. Owing to the fact that the scourge, though have been around for some was alien to Nigeria, thus it exposed the level of preparedness of the country to emergency medical situation. Though, a high profile personality, Sawyer sought help of the medical facility located at the highb ...

A Brisbane doctor bound for Sierra Leone to help victims of Ebola says she will be more protected than the international workers who contracted the deadly virus. Clinical director of anaesthesia at Redlands Hospital Dr Jenny Stedmon leaves for West Africa on Saturday for a month to join an international team of physicians and nursing staff treating victims of Ebola. Earlier this month, an American aid worker working with the deadly virus while in Liberia became infected. Meanwhile, two men in Austria who had been hospitalised on the suspicious of carrying the virus were given the all clear. "We will have the protective equipment that is required so we will be more protected than they were," Dr Stedmon said. "Of course nothing is without risk, but I think on balance, the good that can be done is more important and I think this is a preventable disease, it's important to say that. "With proper protective clothing it's not that likely that I will be affected by the disease." Dr Stedmon said she would have fu ...

The Wellbeing Foundation Africa Celebrates the Life of Nigerian Humanitarian, Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh As we reflect on World Humanitarian Day, which was globally commemorated on the 19th of August 2014, the Wellbeing Foundation Africa recognizes all aid workers who have risked their lives and faced adversity in order to help others. In today’s world, selfless healthcare workers all over the globe, from UNICEF in Syria to Doctors Without Borders in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, also continue to provide invaluable humanitarian services in the face of danger, which have resulted in countless lives being saved. According to the United Nations, 2014 has recorded the highest number of aid worker deaths, kidnappings and injuries, while carrying out life-saving activities. As emphasized by WHO Director-General, Dr. Margaret Chan, “Doctors, nurses and other health workers must be allowed to carry out their life-saving humanitarian work, free of threat of violence and insecurity.” This is particularly i ...

THE FIGHT AGAINST EBOLA It's nearly nine months since the first case of Ebola was reported in Guinea, West Africa. The virus subsequently spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone after causing so much fatality in Guinea. West Africa sits today in a state of uncertainty over efficient measures to take in order to avert a regional disaster. The most shocking reality has been the manner in which government officials and other politicians have extensively engaged in politicising this health dilemma. Can these politicians come to the realisation that innocent lives are perishing daily. We will like to use this forum to issue a wake call to those politicians to arise and tackle the issue. Please stop politicking.
Ebola is from the pit of ***   Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) declared in his church service on Sunday 17th August 2014 that the killer disease Ebola currently ravaging West Africa is from ‘the pit of *** . According to Joshua, who led his congregation in prayer for the nations and individuals affected, time was up for the ‘strange ailment’ and life would soon return to normal for the affected countries. “The so called strange ailment coming from three nations – Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia… satan is the manufacturer, the source,” Joshua defiantly declared to the faithful. “Begin to capture the covenant of that strange sickness,” the cleric then enjoined the congregation. “Command that strange ailment to come out and go to the pit of *** in the name of Jesus Christ!” “Because of Christ, people of Liberia, Sierra Leona, Guinea, you are released,” Joshua bellowed, accompanied by the vibrant congregants in a service allegedl ...
We now know Patrick Sawyer was actually on his way to a famous Nigerian miracle pastor's Church. Another Liberian just showed up, again with Ebola, on his way to same miracle pastor. What do these Liberians know that we don't?

Now those who disagreed with banning of miracles on TV a few years ago must now know better. So between these pastors, government inability to screen visitors entering Nigeria and the abysmal state of healthcare across West Africa, we are indeed in soup! I still cannot believe our internal affairs ministry did not do the easy thing of requesting pre-flight temperature profile from countries like Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, even when we had enough warning. Simply no plan. Lastly, all people from African countries reading this, listen carefully: Our healthcare system is a mess and we do not bel .. ...

Ebola is spreading in West Africa and the scientists from the West told us that the diseases is from the consumption of bush meat . Is bush meat eating new to Africa ? Our fore fathers ate bush meat and they didn't suffer from any disease similar to Ebola . The inhabitants of Pacific Islands of Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Christmas Island, Comoros etc are all bush meat eaters. In Fiji for example the weather is similar to that of tropical Sub Saharan Africa . They hunt for games and eat bush meat ranging from rats, bats, snakes and various reptiles . These are consumed as their major source of protein. Why do we have Ebola in Africa and it is spreading in Africa's emerging economies . There is more to Ebola than meet the eyes. Africa's emerging economies need to train crack squads of hackers and maintain a super intelligence gathering and sharing to checkmate the activities of real and imaginary enemies . As China emerges and overtook rival Japan as world's second largest economy they did not go to s . ...

In other words they take Africa as one big country.

Africa Finds Its Own Cure For Okechukwu Ofili on August 17, 2014 Opinion LAGOS, NIGERIA – While America is busy injecting defenseless rats with the Ebola Virus to systematically extract antibodies that can maybe “cure” Ebola. A group of extraordinary Africans have come together to find a more humane and effective cure for the disease. Sources confirm that this potential cure does not involve harming rats, monkeys or any sort of animal and neither was it created in any fancy or expensive African research University or Hospital (that is if they even exist). These brilliant scientists…I mean pastors gathered inside Africa’s most lavishly equipped and weekly funded medical research facility … the Nigerian church … where several other cures have been discovered in the past couple of years. Including the cure for Aids, the cure for Cancer, the cure for Poverty and even the cure for Boko Haram just ask Pastor T.B. Joshua! So while America is still playing around with rats, these Nigerian pastors ar ...
CHIBOK GIRLS, ISIS AND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY SAGA Today is about 4 months when we heard about abduction and kidnapping of some school girls in Nigeria. the incidence was highly tensed from both local and international communities whereby reaction from Nigerian security agencies indicated not only incapability but also unprofessional in handling such a small group of insurgents (Boko Haram). The situation escalated more and more when the news media throughout the world began to write and headline the incidence in their cover story .Therefore, the superpowers got alerted and began to intervene; The USA, Britain, France, China, Canada, Iran and Israel all offered help to bring back the girls, and of course they did help by sending military experts to Nigeria.Those experts are now almost 3 months in Nigeria searching for those girls in a specific location known to all (Sambisa) but still could not find them. What are they really doing in Nigeria? Is Boko Haram such an untouchable "terrorist" group? Does Bok ...

JONATHAN AND THE SACKED DOCTORS,WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IT: The Resident doctors deserved it. Firstly the education of over 80% of these doctors was subsidized by the government. These doctors are part time doctors because they are working and still schooling to become consultants in their various fields. The average remuneration of resident doctors is over N270 per month and these are not permanent staff of the hospitals. Also the traing/courses they undergo to become consultants is financed by the government whether National (NECO) or West Africa. Yet the went on strike and were paid July salary while still on strike. Last year they went on strike close to three times and at december Fed Govt reached an agreement with them to massively increase their salary such that a House officer(fresh graduate) would now receive N270 and Resident doctor over N350 per month. They are on strike now because govt also heeded to other health workers demand for a marginal increase in salary relatively to the doctors own. ...

Vicissitudes :-( This beautiful art is in memory of all those captive Africans who died on slave ships during the Middle Passage, the crossing from Africa to the Americas. About a third of captives died from the horrible conditions on board. Their bodies were thrown into the Atlantic. Others, particularly women with children, who were often allowed to move about unshackled on deck, threw themselves over. Many believed in reincarnation and hoped to escape slavery and be reborn to a life of freedom. How bad was it that they chose suicide? It certainly is justifiable under these nefarious conditions. Vicissitudes defined: a change of circumstances or fortune, typically one unwelcome or unpleasant. Vicissitudes depicts a circle of figures, all linked through holding hands. Located in Grenada’s Moilinere Bay, Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater sculptures are a momument created to pay homage to the hundreds of slaves that sought freedom or were forced to jump overboard slave ships travelling through the Mi ...

Suspected EBOLA in Germany on Tuesday, 19 August, 2014 at 16:54 (04:54 PM) UTC. Description The Ebola Virus came a little bit closer to home today after a woman was tested for the deadly dise ase in the German capital of Berlin. The 20-year-old woman, who collapsed while working at a Job Centre in Berlin's Pankow district was taken to hospital after showing symptoms of the virus. According to Berliner Zeitung the woman, who is originally from West Africa, said she had had contact with victims of Ebola in her homeland. The job centre was immediately cordoned off and around 600 people have now been quarantined inside, according to reports. Police have not confirmed the case was Ebola but said they were testing for the disease. The deadly virus can only be determined after a blood test is carried out. Early symptoms include fever and circulation issues and mucus. There have already been cases of Ebola found in Spain and Austria. A Spanish priest became the first person in Europe to be treated for the disease ...

Extreme Medicine: The Search for New Antibiotics By Kate Kelland and Ben Hirschler August 19, 2014 NORWICH, England (Reuters) - Pampering leafcutter ants with fragrant rose petals and fresh oranges may seem an unlikely way to rescue modern medicine, but scientists at a lab in eastern England think it's well worth trying. As the world cries out for new antibiotics, researchers at the John Innes Centre (JIC) in Norwich are also taking a bet on bacteria extracted from the stomachs of giant stick insects and cinnabar caterpillars with a taste for highly toxic plants. Their work is part of a new way of thinking in the search for superbug-killing drugs - turning back to nature in the hope that places as extreme as insects' insides, the depths of the oceans, or the driest of deserts may throw up chemical novelties and lead to new drugs. "Natural products fell out of favour in the pharmaceutical sphere, but now is the time to look again," says Mervyn Bibb, a professor of molecular microbiology at JIC who collabor ...

As the Ebola Outbreak in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Nigeria worsens, Nazarene churches in West Africa are asking for prayer and support. “People are deeply worried and engulfed with fear,” said Rev. Daniel Johnson, who serves as district superintendent in Liberia. Nazarene churches are responding by providing health education in communities within the major Ebola “hot spots.” The education program teaches church and community members how to spot symptoms of Ebola and prevent the spread of the disease. Churches are also working to provide prevention and hygiene supplies, including chlorine, disinfectants, soap, pump buckets, and gloves. In addition, they will provide food and vitamins to strengthen the health and immune systems of people living in the affected areas.

Caf Passes Flying Eagles for 2015 AYC after Lesotho Walk-Over Nigeria U-20 men’s football team became the first to reach the group stages of the 2015 African Youth Championship (AYC) after Lesotho failed to show up for a first-leg qualifier on Saturday. The South African nation had earlier expressed concerns over the Ebola Virus outbreak in West Africa, stating categorically its government has placed a travel ban on people arriving from Nigeria Having not been served any prior notification about suspension of the fixture from the Confederation of African Football (Caf), match officials decided the Flying Eagles had walked over Lesotho 15 minutes after the referee’s kick-off whistle in Kaduna. Coac Manu Garba Says the Flying Eagles Will Go Straight Into Camping for AYC. “The Flying Eagles have been declared winners according to the regulations of the competitions,” a statement on the Caf official website read.

First day off in Kigale, Rwanda working on the CECAFA Cup. Went to the Kigali Genocide Museum which documents the events that scarred this land in 1994 when over a 100 day period around 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were murdered. Fantastic example of how to deal with a tragic past. Have posted some pics and left out the truly gruesome images displayed. Although inevitably some of those included are still disturbing. DON'T VIEW IF YOU ARE OF A SENSITIVE DISPOSITION. Thought this part of Africa's history might be of interest to those never likely to make it here.

EBOLA The day you rose you drove Africa to be mad.It was some decades ago but nobody knows your origin.Questions linger battling in our heads,but the key to where the answers are kept is lost and cannot be found. In west Africa you are notorious.All knees bow before you.Not because you are MIGHTY NOR SACRED,but because of the worse that comes with you.Some tried to escape like wild animals in order to survive,but at a blink of an eye you swallowed them. You are hostile,greedy,egocentric and most of it,ALL EVIL.The question is WHY and WHAT for?? but the river to all answers has dried up. Our lives are kept active by prayers.All day long we kneel down and cry out to GOD.The question is HOW MANY MORE SHOULD DIE BEFORE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT?
The upcoming visit of a delegation of leaders from Ghana sponsored by Sisters Cities International has been postponed. The geographic location of Ghana is in a region in West Africa experiencing an ever expanding epidemic of the Ebola Virus. Although the risk of transmission of this disease as a result of this visit is quite small, it is felt the small risk might overshadow the value of this important event. The visit will be rescheduled and announcements will follow.

South Africa’s Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has dismissed claims that the Ebola Virus Disease has arrived in South Africa. This after the Democratic Alliance’s Jack Bloem caused a public panic with claims that a lady, from Guinea, who went into labour at the Rahima Moosa Hospital, west of Johannesburg, had contracted the disease. The Minister said the lady tested negative for the disease and there is still no sign of the disease in the country. “She did not even have symptoms…” he said. “We did the PCR on the lady and she is negative — that’s the normal test that the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) does for Ebola. We still took precautions… we did the serology, although it was not necessary, and it was also negative,” said Minister Motsoaledi on Thursday. He called the urgent media briefing following allegations that a female patient admitted at a hospital was infected with the disease. The test, called DoD EZ1 Real-time RT-PCR Assay, is designed for use on indi ...

According to a source at MultiChoice in South Africa, the four candidates were rejected on the basis of the Ebola scare in West Africa.’s sources at Endemol, producers of the BBA show, said the four candidates who made it through the selection stage in Ghana were rejected because of the Ebola Scare in the West African sub-region.

Got this from a forum; Ebola strikes "Stone age" Africa. The entire continent comprised largely of backward thinking people is thrown into confusion. They were praying,calling on GOD as usual. GOD doesn't drop vaccines or cures from heaven. I wonder why they can't get that into their thick skulls. Ebola hit Africa in the 70s and the Americans took note. They developed a cure and locked it up in a wardrobe somewhere. A thinking society,a practical society,a sensible society. They solved the problem in the lab and not in the church or mosque. They know the solution to problems is not by handing it over to GOD or casting it on Jesus or Mohammed. They found a cure and locked it away, for a day it will be needed. We were in Church and Mosques,praying. So Ebola hit West Africa and the entire continent became jittery. Hundreds died,America kept quiet. Two Americans got infected,the Americans opened their wardrobe,flew the cure to Africa and saved their citizens. The drug worked within minutes! The 2 citizens wer ...
International spotlight For people in West Africa who are currently trying to get through this terrible outbreak that will be of little comfort. Even so, if casting the international spotlight onto Ebola helps to bring our notions of risk perception into sharper focus then that can't be a bad thing - not just in terms of boosting immunisation rates at home. But also if it helps to remind us that Ebola is not the exception, but rather just one example of the terrible norm - where thousands of men, women and children are dying from a range of horrible diseases every day - then perhaps that will bring the world a step closer to doing more about it.

This is copied and pasted from my friend Donna. She coordinated our adoption from Liberia. From the site of Restore Liberia: There has been an increasing amount of coverage about the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa. You need to understand that there is so much more to this than people getting sick. In fact, to larger impact on West Africans is the almost complete economic shut-down that is occurring. Expats are fleeing, businesses are closing or reducing their hours, government offices are closed. Employees are not going home with pay. This is the rainy season, and that means that the reduced transportation routes have already slowed the economy by a third. People are going to get hungry very quickly. Access to clean drinking water is increasingly under threat. Imagine that you are a poor Liberian- In a good month; you may take home $100. A 25 kg bag of rice, however, is $75 (that will feed a family of 4 for a month). The average wage earner supports anywhere from 10 to 15 people. Now you are being told th ...

Dear God, I have just learnt from this evening's ZNBC Main News that the bats, which are suspected to carry Ebola, which usually migrate from West Africa and congregate in Kasanka National Park in Central Province, may threaten our very existence. Almighty God, Kasanka National Park, you know that it is located in the Serenje District of Zambia’s Central Province. At roughly 390km2, Kasanka is one of Zambia’s smallest national parks. Almighty God, thank you that Health Minister Joseph Kasonde, has just assured us that there is no need to worry, though the bats, he says, may have had carried some Ebola Virus in the past. God, some doctors too have assured us that the bats won't be a threat to our lives. God, the problem is, I don't know whether to believe him or not, for these leaders lie to us to much - let them not lie over this matter, for once, let them tell us nothing but the truth. Dear Father, thou at in Heaven, let the Minister's words come to pass that he is not just cooling down our apprehens ...

Nigeria has a community policing contingent in Somalia and Sierra Leone has a good size military contingent in Somalia and both countries are serving under AMISOM. Given the rapid spread of this virus, is there any debate about the implications of this fact. Are members from these forces moving back and forth to their countries?

Mr. Titus Naikuni is the CEO of Kenya Airways and a hero of Kenyan business circles. Kenya Airways is owned by KLM/AirFrance, blue chip companies that profess corporate social responsibility. The World Health Organisation has declared Kenya a high risk Ebola country. The greedy and irresponsible Naikuni/KQ/KLM/AirFrance still want to make endless profits by flying to West Africa, the epicentre of the They don't care about Kenyan lives. They just want profits no matter what; they put their shareholders and creditors above our citizens and healthcare workers. The powerful corporations of KLM/AirFrance/Kenya Airways are playing Russian Roulette with our country's national security, our economic stability, and the lives of our people. It's that simple.

Kenya Medical Association expresses concern over continued flights to Ebola hit West Africa by Kenya Airways.
Scientist say they have found how the lethal Ebola Virus blocks and disables the body’s ability to battle infections in a discovery that should help the search for potential cures and vaccines. A group of scientists in the United States found that Ebola carries a protein called VP24 that interferes with a molecule called interferon, which is vital to the immune response. “One of the key reasons that Ebola Virus is so deadly is because it disrupts the body’s immune response to the infection,” said Chris Basler of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, who worked on the study. “Figuring out how VP24 promotes this disruption will suggest new ways to defeat the virus.” The team, lead by Gaya Amarasinghe from Washington University School of Medicine, found that VP24 works by stopping something called “transcription factor STAT1” – which carries interferon’s antiviral message – from entering the nucleus of a cell and initiating an immune response. “This study shows just h ...
