Via Adjinakou: Ebola suspected case in Porto-Novo. The Google translation:
To better inform people whose fear is high, the doctor Ahlonsoun which happens to be the chairman of the health committee for mayor of Porto-Novo has agreed to lend to our question following an inspection that is been performing at Chd-op following the alert on the suspected cases of Ebola in that center.
For President of the Health Committee in the municipal council of Porto-Novo, there is no danger in delay. Admittedly, the Nigerian-born patient shows signs relating to the Ebola virus, but we can not conclude that this is already the case.
For him, it is the doctor to speculate, to eliminate them as to find what the patient actually suffers. "The signs that the patient may present symptoms of tuberculosis, so do not see that the virus is in Nigeria to put in the same basket every case of fever or other recognized at home under the sign of Ebola" suggested François Ahlonsou.
So he invited the population to remain calm and await the outcome of ongoing tests.
Moreover, the doctor did not fail to give precautions to avoid contracting the disease. "We need to avoid eating bushmeat. It is also important to wash your hands with soap and water before each meal, it is paramount. To all this, one must adopt a healthy and have good reflexes," said Dr. Francis Ahlonsou. However, the results of blood tests we will build in the coming days.
