Via FrontPageAfrica: Ebola Survivor: JFK Releases Heath Worker, Reunite With Family. Click through for a video clip. Excerpt:
Tears of joy overshadowed the scene at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFK) Cholora Unit when doctors finally released a health worker who contracted the deadly Ebola virus from a nurse at the Redemption Hospital in New Kru town.
Family members and well wishers of Mr. Claudius Banarwolo, a Physician Assistant who was assigned at the Redemption Hospital prior to his illness turned out in their numbers to grace what many may referred to as a new day.
Banarwolo was quarantined at the Cholera unit of the JFK since June 28, 2014 after he was tested positive of Ebola, but managed to battle the virus till another test was conducted by doctors which proved him negative.
At the reintegration ceremony Wednesday, July 16, 2014, at the entrance of the Cholera unit of the JFK, which is hosting several Ebola patients, Banarwolo termed his release as a complete miracle while giving praise to God for sparing his life.
Said the Physician Assistant: “ I want to be very grateful today. What happened here is a complete miracle. It is only God that kept me alive because it was strenuous and pathetic. I was living while people pronounced my death. I want to be very grateful to God for doing everything possible to be back outside here to experience the outside breeze.”
Meanwhile, the Assistant Minister of Health for Preventive Services, Mr. Tolbert Nyenswah, has termed Banarwolo’s recovery as a clear manifestation of hope for patients who will arrive quickly for supportive treatment of the Ebola virus.
FrontPageAfrica also has a report linked to this one: a suspected Ebola patient arrived just before the Banarwolo reintegration ceremony and was left abandoned by health workers outside the hospital's main entrance. Evidently he wasn't supposed to be brought in that way, and it took some time for staff to sort out the details and move him into the cholera unit.
