"This is wrong," replied Friday Marc Poncin, emergency coordinator Ebola phone Guinéenews ©.

He regretted the confusion around the disease: "People do not believe in the existence of Ebola and it's really terrible ..."
The coordinator of MSF also recognizes that in some sub-prefectures as Tekoulo where the prefect was recently for awareness sessions, there are reservations. There a few weeks ago, he said, people have cut a bridge that leads in some villages to keep us going.
M. Poncin states that if Télimélé in three out of four patients come to the center for treatment, Guéckédou, it is quite the opposite. "In Guékédou, patients always come late and unfortunately we can do nothing," he laments.
