Pull up your socks! Ebola could flare up again in West Africa

The international medical organisation, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has warned that Ebola could hit West Africa again apparently health authorities have no better equipments to control it like 2014.

The head of medical charity organisation MSF or Doctors without Borders Joanne Liu, said in a meeting on Ebola in Dakar that if Ebola were to hit on scale it did in August and September 2014 then we would hardly do much better than we did last time, News24.com has reported.

The meeting on the epidemic also mentioned that the virus is spreading more slowly than at the peak last year and Liberia has apparently defeated the outbreak but, cases have risen sharply in the past two weeks in Guinea and Sierra Leone.

Liu also shared that she and her group of doctors were very much disappointed by the World Health Assembly and by the Group of Seven industrial nations, G7 in terms of their recommendations and also with WHO, which declared health emergency eight months after the first Ebola case.

Jerome Mouton, MSF country head for Guinea, explained that currently we were being overly optimistic, saying that it is almost finished and there’s no problem but in fact it’s a big problem as there is potential for this to again set off a big epidemic.
