Ebola: Mob attacks Doctors Without Borders medical center

Saturday, April 5, 2014

Good afternoon:

Extremely bad news from Guinea. VOA News is reporting:

The Guinean government appealed for calm Saturday, after a mob attacked a center where Ebola virus victims were being treated.

The attack took place in the southern town of Macenta on Friday, at a center run by Doctors Without Borders.

Witnesses say some of the attackers accused the international relief group of bringing the deadly virus to the region.

The incident forced Doctors Without Borders to suspend treatment at the site and evacuate its team.

This is a terrible development as there are not enough medical professionals in Guinea to deal with this outbreak.

I fear the worst.

The death toll now stands at 93.

    Haven’t they had ebola before? It’s pretty ignorant to think that DWB brought it on them.

      When you’re very frightened it’s easy to believe nonsense. That’s how we are generally subject to being controlled by fearsome tyrants or big bloody wealthy powerful damn liars.

      • Yes, indeed.

        I am sick and tired of our government continually playing the fear card to justify eliminating our constitutional rights.

        There is no such thing as giving up liberty to be free.

    • Not necessarily. The disease incubates in the body for 21 days and is transmitted by coming in contact with bodily fluids such as blood, sweat and saliva. This places health care workers in the highest risk zone. This means that a health care worker newly arrived at a clinic could suddenly manifest symptoms of the disease and freak out a community.

      The good news is the disease cannot be transmitted during the 21-day incubation period. Therefore, it can be controlled by taking adequate precautions.

      Freaking out is not one of them.

    Ignorance deserves death. The virus will run its course and the death toll is something they brought on themselves. Idiots.
