Via Mali Jet: Following the youth revolt Lassa: the observation site evacuated Bamako Mali. The Google translation:
The lightning Ebola havoc in neighboring Republic of Guinea Conakry. To prevent its spread in our country, the authorities have taken a number of steps ranging from the establishment of a monitoring unit, screening passengers at the city border, through the creation of observation sites of suspected cases of the disease. Thus, a site was created to Lassa Commune IV in Bamako district.
But the creation of this site Lassa not required youth membership of this locality, who rioted last Thursday and Friday to demand the evacuation of the site. According to a young demonstrator we reached by telephone, slingers, numbering over a thousand people, a link must accuse on the mayor of Lassa.
Always according to our source, the situation was very critical on Friday night at Lassa where protesters burned the mayor's house and ransacked several cars. The same source tells us that the mayor of Lassa, who is singled should be responsible for creating the site, is not very loved by the people.
It must be stressed during clashes between youths and police, five people were injured. The governor of the district of Bamako made himself a visit to see the damage. It would have taken care of the medical expenses of the injured, says our source.
Which states that suspected cases of the observation site were evacuated on Friday evening at about 20 hours for an ambulance accompanied by a vehicle of the national police and followed closely by the young protesters to mobile Groupement de Sécurité ( Gms) to Tomikorobougou.
Young skiers then returned to Lassa to burn site facilities to remove any risk of contamination. The question is now, after the evacuation of the site, what other place will accept to host the site.
Moreover, many observers point out, the authorities of Mali are not sighted. Especially since they are still waiting for a problem arises consider solutions in a hurry. It adds further to the anger of the population that sites created in the past, for example that of Lazarus in Commune IV, were later sold by the municipal authorities.
Meanwhile, we have no news of the four suspected Ebola cases—neither their location, nor their condition, nor their test results.
