Via Le Jour, a May 30 opinion piece: Ebola: the Guinean authorities unable to break the chain of transmission. The Google translation, lightly edited:
The outbreak of Ebola haemorrhagic fever in which the government claimed to horns and shouts that it was under control, resurfaced. It stretches its tentacles and mourned other prefectures hitherto spared. Prefectures Télémélé, Boffa and Dubréka deplored the event of confirmed cases and suspected cases.
According to the Health Services, 3 new cases including one death were recorded Télémélé. 3 other cases of illness were reported to Boffa. At the same time, the prefecture of Dubréka located on the outskirts of Conakry has also recorded 3 cases. Some patients are in isolation centers created for this purpose. Others are said to be in nature.
So the place to say, the people of the localities concerned are in anguish. Since even prefectures Macenta and Gueckedou Conakry where the virus seemed defeated are reinfected again.
Admittedly external partners, specifically WHO and Médecins sans Frontières deployed great efforts to curb the epidemic. But as of today, the balance of the epidemic is still heavy; since there are in total, according to the official website of the Embassy of France in Guinea 23 and 10 new cases recorded between 21 and 26 May 2014 death.
Guinean authorities would therefore be well advised to multiply efforts and strengthen the strategy to fight against this scourge to protect people's lives instead of masking reality.
