Via Guinéenews.org: Ebola: the National Management Committee regrets "mistake" WHO. This does not sound good. The full report, in Google translation:
The latest figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) Ebola haemorrhagic fever have been contradicted at a press conference Saturday 7 June by the National Committee for management of the disease, which speaks of a "mistake" on the part of the UN institution.
According to the National Committee, the disease was 126 deaths instead of 208 developed by WHO. The Minister for Development Cooperation, Kutub Moustapha Sanoh, member of the Committee, said that advanced by WHO in Geneva figures do not come from his representation of Conakry.
Koutoub Moustapha Sanoh and the Minister of Health, Colonel Remy Lamah, say WHO made a "mistake" on the numbers. They state that there has been 208 cases of Ebola in general. Among them, there are 126 dead, healed the sick and. "The representative of WHO recontacted us to say that this figure was not correct," reported Koutoub Sanoh.
"Instead of coming to us to try to understand what the numbers represent, WHO issued directly that there has been 208 deaths of Ebola in Guinea. Initially we saw Doctors Without Borders speak of a unprecedented epidemic ... This is not normal. must try to find out exactly what we are talking ", has outraged Fode Sylla Tass, another member of the National Committee.
This is the second time that the National Committee disapproves the WHO disease. On April 19, the Committee held national health crisis to "grooming" numbers after WHO has reported 122 deaths out of 197 confirmed cases. After this correction, the technical coordinator of the WHO Ebola outbreak, Dr. J. Bosco Ndohokvzwayo had said he must follow the communications strategy and government figures.
In announcing this Saturday, April 7, the latest figures on the disease, the health minister reiterated that the spread of the disease is due to the abandonment of hygiene. Once more he asked the media to continue their support in raising awareness of the population.
I think the "April 7" in the last paragraph is a typo for June 7, the date of this report. If the government and WHO are going to get into a quarrel about numbers, no one will benefit.
