China-made Detection Reagent Of Ebola Virus Is Going To Be Exported To Africa

One of the nurses who cared for the late Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who become the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola Virus on United States soil, has contracted Ebola.

Thomas Frieden, CDC Director, confirmed the news, Forbes reports.

Authorities say the nurse who works at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, got infected as a result of “an inadvertent breach of protocol.”

Details of the said “breach” are yet to be unveiled. However, Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, stated that “removing personal protective equipment after a long shift has sometimes been associated with the infection of health care workers…all it might take for a health care worker to be infected would be to make contact with the outside of their protective wear on the way to touching their face.”

    THERE IS NO ZMAPP! Instead of worrying about ZMAPP we need to stop these librarians from spreading this disease any further. Notice Ebola is in Guinea Sierra Leone and Liberia. Every place that has been infected of this disease outside of these three areas is because of Liberians. I am a black American and there was no bias treating this man. Over 65000 was spent to clean his so called girlfriends apt.he stayed in th hospital and was taken care of using American taxpayers money. If he was in Liberia the hospitals would have turned him away like they have been doing so many others. How dare people judge us. His girlfriend was moved from her apt. An placed in a ho.e for free. She refused to speak before his death now that he is dead she is now friends with Jesse Jackson an they are claiming bias where was Jesse Jackson when the man was sick. This is all be and it I about money. Liberians should be banned from traveling anywhere because obviously they do not. Have. Conscious an they do not care about anybody.

    Instead of worrying about ZMAPP which is not available we need to stop these Liberians from traveling and spreading this disease all over the world. If you notice you do not hear about people from Guinea or Sierra Leone travelling and infecting people. These Liberian people do not have a conscious.

      Hey honey it’s conscience and before you start opening your mouth on an African blog forum. Know that some of we Nigerians paying top dollar taxes in U.S. are half liberians or Sierra Leoneans.And we do have a conscience and the only difference between you being African-American and Liberian is that Liberians decided to go back after Slavery so that could your second cousin for all you know. Abusing Africans on a naija blog wetin do you.

      In a way the writer is correct. It was after all a Liberian that brought Ebola to Nigeria.

    When will Africans stop complaining?
    We are an independent continent for heavens sake!!!
    We need to take a deep breath and start from somewhere instead of constant complaints. One conspiracy theory after another. Yet we cannot govern our countries well or be good citizens.
    Necessity is the mother of invention. We are all human beings and have been empowered /endowed by the creator. The more we complain and lean on others the more inferior we become.
    Civics, good governance, rule of law, research is the answer. Yes, we can!!!
