The Government regrets that small groups of people Macenta area affected by Ebola, attacked with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), an NGO working in Guinea since the official announcement of the epidemic.
The contribution of the NGO and all international structures that support Guinea in the fight against the pandemic is invaluable and has helped so far to contain the disease. Without these partners, the disease is not under control today.
This reaction more or less singular follows rumors maintained by malicious spirits, according to which the virus was imported in Guinea or does not exist Ebola in our country. The Government protested against such information and reiterates that only the recognition of the existence of the disease helps to fight against it in accordance with the hygiene rules laid down by the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene.
In this fight, Guinea is not only the international community mobilized quickly to support us in these difficult times through a significant medical support and intervention specialists in the field, to the epicenter of the disease, Forest Guinea. That is why the Government calls the people quiet and serenity to enable our partners to support us to eradicate this epidemic.
The Government invited Macenta populations and those of the whole Guinea not to believe the information on hemorrhagic fever which are not from official sources.
In any event, the Government intends to take all necessary measures to secure the specialists and medical equipment including mobile laboratories involved in different areas of the country affected.
While presenting his regret MSF Government promises to take all necessary steps to bring these troublemakers to justice.
