In the good old days, this was what Africa was, and still is, famous for!


So how do you combat an outbreak of a virus which is virtually unstoppable?

Well, if you are in Africa:-

Three Liberian patients received ZMapp on Friday, according to Tolbert G. Nyenswah, a Liberian assistant minister of health and social welfare. The patients signed consent forms stating that they understood the risks of the untested drug, and waived liability for any adverse effects.

The doses had been flown into Liberia after appeals from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia to President Obama and senior American officials. Its arrival last week lifted morale and “raised the hope of everybody,” Mrs. Johnson Sirleaf said. The situation, however, was volatile. On Saturday afternoon, several hundred people in an area of Monrovia known as the West Point slum broke through the gates of a former school that had been converted days earlier into a holding center for people with suspected Ebola.

Samuel Tarplah, 48, a nurse running the center, said Saturday evening that the protesters wanted to shut it down. “They told us that we don’t want an Ebola holding center in our community.” He said the intruders stole mattresses, personal protective equipment, even buckets of chlorine that had just been delivered. “They took everything.”

 

Yep, the very place where the ‘experts’ hoped to contain the sick and the dying was trashed and ransacked.

Modern Africa…………..Just like the old Africa!

Update comment!

‘in an area of Monrovia known as the West Point slum’ which is really difficult to distinguish from all the other slums!
