Jefferson (El Salvador 1974-76 and Costa Rica 1976-77). • Liberia is a fascinating little country. Founded by former slaves from the U.S., it is the oldest republic in Africa.

Ebola situation in Liberia: non-conventional interventions needed. Situation assessment - 8 September 2014. During the past weeks, a WHO team of emergency experts worked together with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and members of her government to assess the Ebola situation in Liberia.. Transmission of the Ebola virus in Liberia is already intense and the number of new cases is increasing exponentially. The investigative team worked alongside staff from the Ministry of Health, local health officials, and other key partners working in the country.. All agreed that the demands of the Ebola outbreak have completely outstripped the governments and partners capacity to respond. Fourteen of Liberias 15 counties have now reported confirmed cases. Some 152 health care workers have been infected and 79 have died. When the outbreak began, Liberia had only 1 doctor to treat nearly 100,000 people in a total population of 4.4 million people. Every infection or death of a doctor or nurse depletes response ...
The U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Technical Assistance (OTA) today announced the launch of a joint effort with the Government of Liberia to develop the countrys anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism regime.. The United States Treasurys Office of Technical Assistance has been impressed by the commitment of Liberian counterparts to strengthening their approach to anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism, said U.S. Treasury Deputy Assistant Secretary for Technical Assistance Larry McDonald. OTA looks forward to a collaborative and proactive working relationship with our Liberian counterparts to accomplish the important reforms that are needed to improve the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing..

Liberia currently has limited capacity to address financial crime, and requested ...
Malaria and filariasis bancrofti infections are found in every section of equatorial West Africa but the incidences vary greatly in different sections, including Liberia. During the last two and a half years, various survey teams of the U. S. Public Health Service Mission in Liberia have made sample studies in the three provinces and four of the five counties of Liberia for the purpose of determining the distribution of these two groups of diseases. Thick blood smears have been taken and studied from over 46,000 Liberians during that period. This paper reports the microfilaremia findings. The malaria findings will be reported in separate papers. The smears were stained by the Giemsa method. Table I gives the microfilaremia findings of these studies with emphasis on the superiority of smears taken at night over those taken during the day. One may estimate that there are between 25,000 to 30,000 individuals showing microfilaremia in Liberia.
MONROVIA, Liberia - Although there are signs the Ebola outbreak in Liberia is slowing, the fight against the disease remains an uphill battle. Underlying problems with the health system continue to impede public health responses, and rumours are discouraging people from seeking help. To extend the reach of health workers and calm fears about the outbreak, UNFPA is playing a key role in contact tracing and disease surveillance efforts.. As of 7 November, 6,619 cases of Ebola had been identified in Liberia, 2,766 of which ended in death, according to the World Health Organization. Ebola can be spread once an infected person begins to exhibit symptoms; this can take place at any point within the diseases 21-day incubation period.. UNFPA is working with Liberias Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and a variety of local and international partners to implement and scale up contact tracing - a key weapon in the fight against Ebola. Contact tracers are trained to find everyone who has been in ...
The World Health Organization on Monday urged Liberia and other Ebola-affected countries to screen all passengers leaving international airports, sea ports and major ground crossings.. Those with symptoms of the virus also were urged not to travel. Many airlines have halted services to the capitals of Liberia and neighboring Sierra Leone.. The weekend chaos in Monrovia highlights the growing unease and panic in Liberia amid the mounting Ebola death toll and illustrates the risks of further instability in this deeply impoverished country where mistrust of the government runs high. In addition, health workers are complaining about a lack of protective gear. Treatment centers are viewed by many as a place where people go just to die.. They are not happy with the way Ebola is being managed and the response that the government is providing, said Koala Oumarou, a director for the aid group Plan Liberia, which is helping the health ministry to raise awareness. Its where the frustration is coming ...
The project, dubbed Beyond the Grid: Electrifying Liberias Population Centers, is a $4.6 million effort funded by USAID as part of the Obama administrations Power Africa initiative. Its aim is to spur stability and economic development by delivering reliable, predominantly renewable electricity to Liberias rural towns. NRECA was selected by USAID to help the RREA manage the planning, construction oversight, and capacity building for several communities receiving USAID-financed renewable energy systems.By January 2015, daily reports of new Ebola cases in Liberia had slowed significantly, and Waddle determined that safety protocols were adequate to send team members in.

Speaking with reporters on 12th street in Sinkor, the group through its chairperson, Madam Loretta Aletha Poke-Kai believes that the decentralization of criminal court E will also help reduce the overcrowdedness of prison centers which are a result of delay in the prosecution of rape cases, a violation of the rights of pre-trial detainees..

In 2005, two years after the end of a destructive civil war, the Government of Liberia established an ambitious plan to increase access to basic health services.9 In 2008 we found that villages in Nimba county, in the north of the country, were an average of 7 km away from a functioning health facility and that nearly 60% of the population lived within a 2-hour walk of a facility. All health facilities surveyed had at least one trained health worker (generally a nurse), and between 70% and 86% had some basic infrastructure (e.g. electricity and a water pump) and basic equipment (e.g. stethoscopes and a refrigerator). However, fewer than half of the facilities that served the study villages had all five of the basic inputs.. In terms of service availability, although most facilities offered some of the basic package of health services, none of the facilities that served the study villages offered all five index services. The Government of Liberia has set a target that 70% of health facilities in ...

The Ebola virus disease (EVD) epidemic that has stricken thousands of people in the three West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea highlights the lack of adaptive capacity in post-conflict countries. The scarcity of health services in particular renders these populations vulnerable to multiple interacting stressors including food insecurity, climate change, and the cascading effects of disease epidemics such as EVD. However, the spatial distribution of vulnerable rural populations and the individual stressors contributing to their vulnerability are unknown. We developed a Social Vulnerability Classification using census indicators and mapped it at the district scale for Liberia. According to the Classification, we estimate that districts having the highest social vulnerability lie in the north and west of Liberia in Lofa, Bong, Grand Cape Mount, and Bomi Counties. Three of these counties together with the capital Monrovia and surrounding Montserrado and Margibi counties ...
Monrovia, capital of Liberia; 1. 1 million residents (2010). Monrovia, which is the countrys largest port city, was originally founded at the mouth of the Mesurado River to then expand and include the Bush Island, on which the main port facilities are located.

African American Military Advisors in Africa. With two books on Charles Young (1864-1922) under his belt, Shellum, a retired Army officer and former DoD historian, gives us a look at the careers of the seventeen African-American officers who saw service as military attachés, advisors, or contract officers in Liberia during the first half of the twentieth century, and their impact on the local military. Some of these men - notably Col. Young and Benjamin O. Davis (1880-1970) - were Regular Army officers, others were former Volunteer officers who had received commissions during the Spanish- or Philippine-American Wars, and some were NCOs given officer rank in Liberia. Shellum gives us the military backgrounds of these men, some of whom saw extensive service, and the interplay of government policy, military politics, and American racial attitudes that led to their assignment to Liberia. He also gives us some glimpses into how the officers and their families adapted to Liberian society and ...
National and International health authorities have still not arrived at the source of the new Ebola cases in Liberia but they have ruled out the possibility that it could be as the result of a dog.. Last Thursday, authorities disclosed that two additional cases had been added to the previous three to make five cases, including the dead 17-year-old whose death sparked the resurgence of the death which killed some 4,800 people in Liberia. The confirmed new cases could increase to eight in days as three other contacts tested indeterminate.. Liberias Chief Medical Officer Dr. Francis Kateh told a news conference in MonroviaFriday that they could not find any scientific proof that the current outbreak was as a result of a dog meat eaten by the initial victim.. Thus, the source of the new outbreak is still a mystery and an investigation by the Liberian Institute for Biomedical Research and the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been ongoing.. Nearly complete genomes ...

Boston, MA - Today, President Trump extended the Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) program for Liberians for twelve months, through March 31, 2020. This decision comes hours ahead of an emergency hearing in federal court in a lawsuit filed by the national Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and Lawyers for Civil Rights calling for the administration to reverse its decision to terminate DED, a life-saving immigration program, for Liberian immigrants. The lawsuit, the first of its kind in the country, was filed on behalf of African Communities Together (ACT), the UndocuBlack Network, and over a dozen affected individuals, including Liberians raising U.S. citizen children. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.. This is a major win for families and communities impacted by the administrations discriminatory decision to terminate a humanitarian relief program that provided a safe haven for thousands of Liberian immigrants who have been ...
There are increasing efforts and attention focused on the delivery of mental health services in primary care in low resource settings (e.g., mental health Gap Action Programme, mhGAP). However, less attention is devoted to systematic approaches that identify and address barriers to the development and uptake of mental health services within primary care in low-resource settings. Our objective was to prepare for optimal uptake by identifying barriers in rural Liberia. The countrys need for mental health services is compounded by a 14-year history of political violence and the largest Ebola virus disease outbreak in history. Both events have immediate and lasting mental health effects. A mixed-methods approach was employed, consisting of qualitative interviews with 22 key informants and six focus group discussions. Additional qualitative data as well as quantitative data were collected through semi-structured assessments of 19 rural primary care health facilities. Data were collected from March 2013 to
During the 2014 Ebola outbreak, Liberia was one of the hardest-hit countries in West Africa, with the highest number of Ebola deaths. According to the World Health Organization, Liberia reported 300 to 400 new cases every week in August and September 2014, a devastating pace for the countrys already weak health system.. Working in the capital city of Monrovia and in central Liberia, our partner Women and Health Alliance International (WAHA) has made efforts to reestablish the communitys confidence and trust in health services.. Despite considerable challenges, they have already provided treatment to more than 100 women this year.

The Ebola epidemic is not just devastating the Liberian population. It is also severely crippling all sectors of the country s economy: notably health, trade and commerce, and education. The World Bank recently projected major reductions in the economy over the coming years estimating that Liberia could see significant contractions of its growth. The impact of EVD has seen the original GDP growth projections revised downwards from the initial 8.7 percent, progressively to 5.9 percent, 2.5 percent, and most recently, to 1 percent. This will have a direct impact on the country s Human Development Index. With villages decimated by the disease and agricultural fields being abandoned, famine is becoming a reality. The prices of food have been rising due to shortages. Liberian professionals who hold foreign passports, many of whom returned with high hopes of contributing to the development of their motherland, are leaving the country. This will accentuate Liberia s deficiencies in human resources. ...
On the ground in Liberia, Buchanan Renewables CEO was James Steele, a larger-than-life former U.S. military figure and onetime Texas business partner of OPICs then-president and CEO, Robert Mosbacher Jr. Mosbachers father was Commerce secretary under President George H.W. Bush.. Steele drew acclaim, and controversy, over his role in U.S. military efforts, from the Iran-Contra affair to Iraq, where he performed work for President George W. Bushs defense secretary, Donald H. Rumsfeld.. Even before the Liberian project, Mosbacher had tapped Steele as a consultant to help OPIC develop power projects. Over 22 months from 2006 to 2008, the agency paid Steele $390,000 for consulting and an additional $114,556 in travel expenses, the AP found. Then it approved three loans to support Buchanans vision in Liberia.. The venture collapsed amid tensions between the company and the Liberian government, questions from the U.S. Embassy and the withdrawal of a vital financier. Troubling stories emerged: ...
The international community, including the United States, dispatched troops to intervene between President Taylors forces and rebel fighters, and by August a peace deal was struck. Earlier this month, Geetoe was one of 97 people on the first official repatriation flight for Liberian refugees since the war ended. The United Nations refugee agency, the UNHCR, predicts that 100,000 of the estimated 340,000 Liberians in West Africa will return home by years end. [...] as Geetoe soon learns, trading the relative security of a refugees life for a new start is fraught with risks in a country as ravaged as Liberia. The number of refugees worldwide is dropping, as more people are going home than are fleeing their countries anew.

A Liberian doctor who was among three Africans to receive an experimental Ebola drug has died, the countrys information minister said Monday, as a top U.N. delegation promised more help for countries battling the virulent disease during a visit to Sierra Leone.. Dr. Abraham Borbor, the deputy chief medical doctor at Liberias largest hospital, had received the untested drug, ZMapp, after it was given to two Americans. After receiving medical car in the U.S. they later survived the virus that has killed about half of its victims.. A Spanish missionary priest infected with Ebola also received the treatment but died. There was no update given on the two other Liberians who took the last known available doses of ZMapp.. Borbor was showing signs of improvement but yesterday he took a turn for the worse, and died Sunday, Information Minister Lewis Brown told The Associated Press.. Ebola has killed more than 1,400 people across West Africa in the countries of Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and ...

I dont know Patrick Oliver Sawyer, and I never met the young man, either. I understand, however, that he was a brilliant and vibrant young man who was full of life.. So full of life and progressive ideas to move his country forward, he moved back home to Liberia from the United States years ago to contribute his part to the development of his country.. Patrick Oliver Sawyer, (PO) to his many friends was not suppose to die now, this young; let alone, die far away from his native Liberian soil.. If he wanted to die for some reasons, or if we expected him to die because we knew he was sick, at least, his death would have kicked into our consciousness knowing that the young man was on his dying bed. That way, we would have prepared ourselves for the eventual rituals of burying him.. Mr. Sawyer, however, had no idea after he returned home to Liberia that his name would be associated in a negative with the politics of the deadly Ebola virus that took his young life in Nigeria, where he reportedly ...
The United Nations Development Program issues an annual Human Development Index, ranking countries from 1 (best) to 187 (worst). Liberia ranks 175th - better than neighboring Guinea (179) and Sierra Leone (183) - but well behind nearby Senegal (163) or Ghana (138). To be fair, Liberia is situated in one of the worlds toughest and poorest regions.. More than eight out of 10 Liberians were officially unemployed before the Ebola epidemic, meaning their incomes were generated by either subsistence farming or off-the-books work, such as domestic labor and day jobs, or hustling and hawking of goods and services. Although growth had been strong before Ebola - GDP swelled 11.3 percent in 2013, more than twice the sub-Saharan African average of 4.7 percent -per capita income was a mere $410. All over the country, burned-out buildings are strewn across cities and towns, even distant country roads, bearing evidence not only of damage done during the civil wars, but of the long haul for postwar ...

According to a dispatch from the U.S. the Liberian leader was speaking on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at Georgetown University during a forum on the theme: Womens Political Leadership in Africa: The Next Generation.. Addressing the gathering, President Sirleaf said: I accepted this invitation months ago, believing that Liberias historic 2017 elections, an event marking the first time since 1944 that presidential authority would be transferred democratically from one elected leader to another, would have been completed. It has not. In fact, it has become more complicated, but that is the nature of a post conflict democracy.. She recalled that in the past, close to twelve years of her Presidency, she promoted democracy, protected fundamental freedom and encouraged an open society. President Sirleaf said there were many times when she wondered if she had it right; if under the circumstances of a war-torn country like Liberia, there were alternatives that would lead to more civic ...
In yet another embarrassing turn in the ongoing saga over the death of Mr. Harry A.

A potential underreporting correction factor of 2.5 also was calculated. Using this correction factor, the model estimates that approximately 21,000 total cases will have occurred in Liberia and Sierra Leone by September 30, 2014.. Extrapolating trends to January 20, 2015, without additional interventions or changes in community behavior (e.g., notable reductions in unsafe burial practices), the model also estimates that Liberia and Sierra Leone will have approximately 550,000 Ebola cases (1.4 million when corrected for underreporting).. The authors do point out five limitations to the findings:. First, extrapolating current trends in ...
The national carrier Kenya Airways has temporarily suspended its commercial flights to Liberia and Sierra Leone..

In the 2010s we expanded the child sponsorship programme further in Africa, South-East Asia and the Middle East. In 2011, we set up child sponsorship in Liberia.. In 2012 and 2013 we started working with communities and sponsored children in Myanmar and Democratic Republic of Congo, respectively. By the middle of the decade, the devastating ebola virus spread in west Africa affecting Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.. In Sierra Leone, schools were closed and families were quarantined in their houses. ActionAids child sponsorship programme ensured children were provided with textbooks and educational materials so they could study at home during isolation. Over 12,000 children in Sierra Leone were orphaned during the ebola epidemic. ActionAid ran a campaign looking for new child sponsors for these children so they could have shelter, food and an education. In Liberia, our child sponsorship programme supported families and funding programmes to help Liberians rebuild their country. We focused on ...
GENEVA: The death toll from the current Ebola outbreak has reached 8,594 people with ass many as 21,614 are infected, the World Health Organization (WHO) said in a statement on Monday.. These cases were reported from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. In line with statistics, the maximum number of Ebola-related deaths and cases has been registered in Liberia - 3,587 cumulative deaths and 8,435 cumulative cases. Liberia is followed by Sierra Leone (3,132 deaths and 10,306 cases) and Guinea (1,875 deaths and 2,873 cases).. The number of Ebola deaths in these three countries rose by 126 and the number of cases rose by 241 since January 16.. Separate cases have also been registered in Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Spain, Great Britain and the United States. In most of these countries, the number of Ebola-related cases does not exceed ten, with the only exception of Nigeria, where 20 people are infected with Ebola virus and eight have died. ...
Geneva, July 16, IRNA -- 603 deaths from the current Ebola virus epidemic trend in Sierra Leone and Liberia were reported, with high numbers of new cases and deaths between July 8 - 12, 79 new cases, and 65 deaths were reported from Liberia and Sierra.

TORONTO - The Canadian company that is developing an experimental Ebola drug says its product was not given to one of two American aid workers infected with the virus.Tekmira Pharmaceuticals said in an email that no one infected in the ongoing outbreak in West Africa has been treated with its drug, called TKM-Ebola.The Christian relief group Service in Mission or SIM said late last week that one of its missionaries, Nancy Writebol, had been given an experimental drug flown into Liberia, where she contracted the disease while working in an Ebola treatment facility. Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone are battling a months-long outbreak that has infected at least 1,440 people and killed at least 826.Another American, Dr. Kent Brantly, was also infected at the same centre in Liberia. Brantly works with the international relief agency Samaritans Purse.Its president, Franklin Graham, said in a statement last week that limited supplies of an unnamed experimental drug arrived at the facility.

In October 1990, due to mounting pressure from both within and outside the country for political and economic reform, president Momoh set up a constitutional review commission to assess the 1978 one-party constitution. Based on the commissions recommendations a constitution re-establishing a multi-party system was approved by the exclusive APC Parliament by a 60% majority vote, becoming effective on 1 October 1991. There was great suspicion that president Momoh was not serious about his promise of political reform, as APC rule continued to be increasingly marked by abuses of power. The brutal civil war that was going on in neighbouring Liberia played a significant role in the outbreak of fighting in Sierra Leone. Charles Taylor - then leader of the National Patriotic Front of Liberia - reportedly helped form the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) under the command of former Sierra Leonean army corporal Foday Saybana Sankoh, an ethnic Temne from Tonkolili District in Northern Sierra Leone. Sankoh ...
The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak of Ebola virus disease in west Africa officially over, more than two years after it began.. Liberia is the last of the three west African countries worst affected by the virus to mark 42 days since the last patient tested negative for the disease. Liberia was first declared free of the virus in May 2015 but has had two flare ups of the virus since then. Sierra Leone was declared free of transmission on 7 November last year, and Guinea was declared free … ...
WHO continues to monitor the evolution of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. New cases and deaths attributed to EVD continue to be reported from the three countries. Between 13 - 14 July 2014, 18 new cases and 11 deaths were reported from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.
President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has acknowledged gains made by Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone on the economic front prior to the Ebola outbreak in 2014 that hit Southern Guinea and later spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone.
18 August 2014 - The current Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak began in Guinea in December 2013. This outbreak now involves community transmission in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and recently an ill traveler from Liberia infected a small number of people in Nigeria with whom he had direct contact. On 8 August 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) in accordance with the International Health Regulations (2005).. The risk of transmission of Ebola virus disease during air travel is low. Unlike infections such as influenza or tuberculosis, Ebola is not spread by breathing air (and the airborne particles it contains) from an infected person. Transmission requires direct contact with blood, secretions, organs or other body fluids of infected living or dead persons or animals, all unlikely exposures for the average traveler. Travelers are, in any event, advised to avoid all such ...
With the number of Ebola cases in West Africa continuing to increase, coordinated national and international actions are required to try to stop the spread of disease.
Authorities will use the so-called ring vaccination procedure to track down anyone who could have been exposed to a newly diagnosed patient, and then provide the vaccination if they agree. The ring vaccination method was used to eradicate smallpox in the 1970s. An effective vaccine to control current flare-ups could be the game-changer to finally end this epidemic and an insurance policy for any future ones, said Marie-Paule Kieny, who leads the Ebola research and development effort at WHO. Both candidate vaccines, VSV-EBOV and CAd3, are also being tested in Liberia with hope in protecting against the deadly epidemic, which has killed some 9,800 people in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, the WHO said. As of mid-February, 23,253 people in the world have been infected with the Ebola virus. The United Nations has recently warned that the spread of the deadly Ebola virus is not fully controlled yet despite a significant fall in the number of new cases across West Africa. Ebola is a form of ...
By Kieran GuilbertDAKAR, Nov 6 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Sierra Leone isset to be declared Ebola-free by the World Health Organization(WHO) on Saturday, when the west African nation will have gone42 days without any new cases.The worlds worst recorded outbreak of the virus hasinfected more than 28,500 people and killed 11,300 in Guinea,Liberia and Sierra Leone since it began in December 2013.Liberia was declared free of Ebola for the second time onSept. 3. However, Guinea is still battling the virus, while thecase of Scottish nurse Pauline Cafferkey, the first knownsurvivor to have an apparently life-threatening relapse, hasrevived fears about the health of some 17,000 survivors.Ahead of the Ebola-free declaration in Sierra Leone,frontline aid workers share their thoughts.Ngozi Kennedy is a health specialist at the U.N. childrensagency (UNICEF)The last week of this countdown was really a mix of joy andanxiety because as you get closer youre so hopeful, but withactive cases in Guinea you still
RAPIDDs small structure and lack of bureaucracy also allowed it to quickly convene workshops, often in the middle of an outbreak, Grenfell noted. In March 2015, for example, as the WHO reported more than 10,000 Ebola deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, a RAPIDD working group held a model comparison workshop, which gave rise to a months-long competition in which modelers from the U.S., U.K. and Canada tried to predict Ebola would peak in Liberia and how it would progress between September and December 2015. Most accurately forecast the time of peak infection, and even the weakest model held useful information, showing that transmission is not exponential at the beginning of an outbreak.. RAPIDD modelers often thought creatively to find ways to produce the information that policymakers need to resolve a health problem. For example, given the reluctance of ranchers to grant scientists access to their land so that they could gather data on the movement of livestock, which would help to ...
The death toll from the Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone neared 1,000, the World Health Organization said Aug. 8. Among those being treated for the disease was a 75-year-old Spanish priest, evacuated from Liberia to Madrid.. Symptoms of the disease, which has no known cure, include vomiting, diarrhea and internal and external bleeding. The fatality rate of the current outbreak is around 60 percent.. Ghanas bishops said they were particularly concerned about fishermen who have been to affected countries, return to Ghana through its harbors and go straight to their families and communities without any proper screening.. This poses a real danger not only to the families of such people but to the entire nation, and we call on (the) government to help address this situation, the bishops said.. They urged the government to set up centers in hospitals and clinics around the country that are equipped to manage cases of Ebola, as well as to provide protective gear to staff in these ...
IN FEBRUARY 2014, an outbreak of haemorrhagic fever later identified as Ebola virus disease (EVD) occurred in Guinea. This was the first time EVD occurred in Guinea. The outbreak, the worst on record, continues, having spread to Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. Since the outbreak began, there have been over 2400 cases with more than 1300 deaths (fatality rate of about 55%). The affected countries (Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone) continue to report new cases. The presentation and diagnosis of Ebola virus disease.
President Ahmed Tejan Kabbahs government says the question is under review. Privately, it is looking to Britain to give a lead. The British, fearing accusations of neo-colonialism, say it is a matter for Mr Kabbah.. The UNs special representative in Sierra Leone wants a return to the Lomé agreement. The UN in New York is less sure, worried particularly by the agreements amnesty for terrorists. The Americans, whose officials drafted the Lomé deal, and whose presidential envoy to Africa, Jesse Jackson, pushed it through, are also divided. Mr Jackson was quoted last week as comparing Mr Sankoh to Nelson Mandela. This week he was trying to sound more diplomatic. But Richard Holbrooke, Americas ambassador to the UN, has described the RUF as a bunch of ragtag, machete-wielding murderers.. The void in policy is filled, to an uncomfortable extent, by Liberias president, Charles Taylor. He and Mr Sankoh met through Libyas Muammar Qaddafi. As the leading warlord in Liberias own brutal civil ...
The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here. Ebola has come to America. Air travel between the United States and the countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone should have been totally shut down except for absolutely essential personnel but it wasnt. And now our nation may end up paying a great price as a result. On Tuesday, the CDC announced that there is a confirmed case of Ebola in Dallas, Texas. We know that this individual is a male and that he traveled by air from Liberia to Texas on September 19th. At that time, he was not exhibiting any symptoms. It is being reported that he started developing symptoms on September 24th and that he sought out treatment two days later. Incredibly, he was turned away and sent home. Then on September 28th he went to a hospital again and this time he was admitted for treatment. That means that he could have potentially been spreading Ebola to others for at least four full days before finally getting treated at a hospital. Now he is in ...

In the war on Ebola, the tide may finally be turning. Its incidence continues to fall, Mali is officially Ebola free, and schools in Guinea and Sierra Leone, which closed as the epidemic spread rapidly, are finally reopening. Yet at the same time, schools in Liberia have delayed their plans to reopen by another month, suggesting that West Africa may not yet be out of the woods. The longer the epidemic persists, the greater the likelihood that the worst of Ebolas symptoms be yet to come.. For months, violent civil unrest has threatened to convulse the region afflicted by the disease. In August, Liberian forces fired into a crowd protesting a government quarantine of their neighborhood, killing a 15-year-old boy. The following month, villagers in Guinea killed eight aid workers and disposed of their bodies in the village latrine. Similar grisly spasms of violence have broken out across West Africa since the start of the outbreak, driven by a mistrust of aid workers and health officials. More ...
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has cautioned that U.S. health care workers should be on alert for signs and symptoms of Ebola virus disease in patients with compatible illness who have traveled within 21 days to countries currently seeing an outbreak of the disease. Those countries include Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The warning comes after two U.S. citizens working at a Liberian hospital were recently confirmed to have the Ebola virus infection. EVD symptoms include sudden onset of fever and malaise, accompanied by headache, vomiting and diarrhea. CDC also recommends that patients with symptoms and a recent travel history to the West African countries be considered for isolation pending diagnostic testing. The advisory includes a summary, background information, recommendation and links to additional information.. ...
Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica and Belize have imposed travel bans on the affected nations. Belize has gone as far as restricting entry to travelers from not just the three countries experiencing the outbreak, Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, but to the Democratic Republic of Congo and Nigeria as well.. In fact, this latest series of missteps emanating from the White House over the Ebola virus has sapped public approval for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), whose primary purpose is to stop the spread of diseases in the U.S. A new CBS News poll found that just 37% of Americans polled thought the CDC was doing a good job, down from 60% just last year.. While the White House continues to refuse to institute travel restrictions on the West African countries in the grips of the Ebola outbreak, the number of visas issued to Liberians has soared to about 3,500 last year alone. Another 10,000 issued to citizens of Guinea and Sierra Leone indicates that the Obama administration is ...
by Kieron E. Ryan. Naomi Campbell is in the ridiculous position of having to give testimony at the war crimes trial of former Liberian warlord Charles Taylor on the grounds that she received a blood diamond from him. One might question the company she keeps, but on the diamond issue she should tell her inquisitors to go to hell.. Blood Diamond was a fun movie and no doubt had elements of truth to it. Leonardo di Caprios South Africa accent was passable (actually he portrayed an ex-Rhodesian who had moved onto bigger, badder battles fighting the white African cause wherever that calling took him). His real crime was attempting to smuggle diamonds supposedly obtained by slave labour and destined for the grand arms bazaar that turned countries like Sierra Leone and Liberia into giant, open-air slaughter houses. A somewhat embarrassing sub-text to this story is that it was a company of South African mercenaries, called Executive Outcomes, that brought peace to Sierra Leone in the 1990s, allowing ...
The pioneers of research on Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) were French doctors Luc Montagnier and Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, shared with the German researcher Harald zur Hausen, determined the human papillomavirus.. The cruel scourge of AIDS kills about 2.8 million lives each year throughout the world, especially in developing countries.. Homosexual practices are illegal in the Middle East and North Africa. Men who are caught having sex with other men can be punished with imprisonment or capital punishment. However, many gay assume the legal risk, but are not aware of another danger: the AIDS virus.. In recent years, the contagion has spread among men to be an emerging epidemic. Although not the first route of infection, it is responsible for 25% of the new infections. A fact that, according to the authors of the studies of the Group of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases in the Cornell University (Qatar), requires urgent ...

WHO assistant director-general Dr. Bruce Aylward says if the response to the Ebola crisis isnt stepped up within 60 days, a lot more people will die and there will be a huge need on the ground to deal with the spiraling numbers of cases. He said WHO estimated there could up to 10,000 cases per week in two months.. Aylward said for the last four weeks, there have been about 1,000 new cases per week, though that figure includes suspected, confirmed and probable cases. He said WHO is aiming to have 70 percent of cases isolated within two months to reverse the outbreak.. WHO increased its Ebola death toll tally to 4,447, nearly all of them in West Africa, and the group said the number of probable and suspected cases was 8,914.. Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia have been hardest hit. Aylward said WHO was very concerned about the continued spread of Ebola in the three countries capital cities -Freetown, Conakry and Monrovia. He noted that while certain areas were seeing cases decline, that ...
