US Sends Medical Experts to Nigeria to Learn how to Contain Ebola

Ebola-preventing Exercise Gets Held In Zhangjiajie

The United States’ Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is impressed by the effective methods Nigeria has employed to contain Ebola.

Following the discovery of the first case of Ebola Virus diagnosed in the United States, the CDC has sent its staff to study how Nigeria contained the deadly disease, Vanguard reports.

A statement released by CDC Director Tom Frieden stated that Nigeria’s “extensive response to a single case of Ebola shows that control is possible with rapid, focused interventions.” In addition to visiting Nigeria, CDC officials will also visit Senegal to study its containment model.

“The best practices in Nigeria and Senegal suggest the U.S. should monitor all individuals who may have been exposed to Ebola and establish a dedicated management and response system,” Frieden said.

    Apart from the physical response to the virus, it was God that helped us. Argue if you want but I see his hand in it. He should be given all the glory

    I don’t trust this Americans o, Nigerians should be careful with them especially our medical personnel, before we start hearing about another case of Ebola in Nigeria. When did America start learning from Nigeria? Is Nigeria no longer a ‘developing nation’?

    Hmmmmm….i smell something fishy here o, do they have to send officials down here? i believe the whole world was carried along during the period the epidemic lasted in this country so what are they coming all the way here to find out? Anyway we should please not let our guards down, the so called medical personnels should be quarantined and tested for EVD. To be fore warned is to be fore harmed!

    Americans are coming to study how to contain Ebola in Nigeria, wonders shall never end. What happened to the Almighty drugs they produced to cure the deadly virus. This is a strong indication that Americans should not put their trust in what they can do but to focus on what HE can do. From what we hear from those who survived Ebola eg the young lady doctor, the nurse’s fiance, they said God cured them. There is a reason Ebola came to Nigeria and this article posted by BN says it all..

    Why are they coming to Nigeria? How did they treat that medical doctor who contacted the virus from Liberia then? I’m just curious

    The same Americans we begged and pleaded to send us the Z-Mapp drug to save Dr Adadevoh and they refused!!!!!

    Lies!!!!!!! Was it not foreign doctors along with Bill gates money that contained Ebola in Nigeria?

  13. Really???

    Father take all the Glory!!!
    When God wants to prove himself, he does without sharing his glory. When he wants to announce you, he does in mysterious ways.
    When the news broke out about the EVD in Nigeria and the manner in which it came into the country i was saddened, but i knew God was not going to let his us perish. Nigerians are religious people,we have powerful men of God from all corners of the nation, prayer groups from left, center, right praying against the EVD why will God forsake us.
    I never imagined that a day will come when U.S will send medical experts to learn from Africa even my country Nigeria.
    God has proven to the world that he’s the same God that turned water into wine, the same God that departed the red sea for his children, the same God that cured those with Ebola virus in Nigeria without experimental drug ( ZMapp).

      Lol they should take you with them when they are going back since their arrival is such a privilege for you. God forgive me for being small-minded but my first thought was ‘we should have told them our containment methods are still experimental and require further research and testing.’ Meanwhile this story reeks of BS. If they really wanted to ‘learn’ they would have gone to the WHO.

    That is because the drugs are phantoms. they need to come to Naija to learn because from what I am seeing on TV, a boat load of people here will be infected before they get a handle on it. Look at the panic in the eyes of the ‘experts. So far they are quite clumsy in handling the matter… and it is a herculean task
    Please give them some alaboku powder too …

    We are so used to being failures that even in this moment when we are seen as stars, we doubt it.

    Why can’t America learn from naija? Are we stupid, dumb and worthless? Please all of you should shift. This is why America stays improving. They ain’t too proud to beg for knowledge.

    Kudos to all our health care professionals who helped contain Ebola in naija. You are stars. I’m glad you are being recognized as stars by the international community. God bless you all.

      Pls chop one kiss for this comment. Just cant wrap my head around such paranoia and insecurity.
      I agree, this is why they stay on top.
      Proud to be Nigerian at this moment.

      We aren’t stupid or worthless but this isn’t a Nigerian thing. Many countries (including developed ones) eye America with distrust when they seem to just show up for a reason that doesn’t entail collecting your natural resources – with good reason. Also, when have they “begged” a developing country for anything?

    While I don’t trust americans either…. the articles said they want to learn about “containment”, not “treatment”
    To that end, yes there is something to learn from Nigeria. Just don’t let them inject anyone ooo. Hmm before we hear new stories

    This story sha lol… Didn’t America contain the Ebola Virus themselves through the people brought to Emory hospital? Why is it now they require our help to “learn” how to contain the virus..

    Really? Evil souls… After we begged them for the drug to save Adadevoh and others… they refused, eventually sending whatever drugs they had to Sierra Leone and none to Nigeria! Oloshi people. It is God that healed those that survived Ebola. They should go and remove the anectdote from the lab where they manufactured their biological weapon Ebola. We amazed and will continue to amaze them.

    My goodness! I read this story and knew I would have to check the source cause it sounded quite improbable. Anyways from what I could gather there is no mention of this statement anywhere else on the internet. A quick google search of the statement would help. Isn’t vanguard meant to be a reputable source? Vanguard and other news media that reposted on from vanguard are the only ones carrying the story. Bellanaija you should check sources before you rebroadcast. It’s either that statement was made up or I did not search properly.

    Ok, I hope I read this article well, so America now wish to send their medical experts to Nigeria to learn how to contain Ebola. God is more than awesome! He turns the wisdom of the wise to foolishness. But I don’t trust America at all, i think their initial plan did not work so they trying to come up with something else, but God pass them.

    They should use their experimental drug, after all they have already tested it on their own doctor.

    Conspiracy theory is sqeezing african continent to death.the same reason why many african cou tries have not been able to eradicate ebola.the same reason they are killing their own who came to educate them on how to deal with ebola on a personal level.at least americans has the humility to learn as always from one who has done it better.africa has been so isolated from the rest of the world that they do not know how the internstional community works.believe me , they are not comming to kill or bring another ebola but, just to share knowledge from both sides.is true that for 40 years ebola has ravaged west africa, yet non of its goverment has tried to find the source of this virus and educate its population on how to eradicate it for ever..one question though the rest of the world has gone beyond polio but , nigeria in particular is one of the few countries in the world thatstill has polio cos, of —–conspiracy theory.then try fixing your own problem I nstead of alw a ys looking out for others to do it without being thankful.

      This is not a conspiracy theory, this is a fact. Why do you think the African continent has continued to suffer from poverty and deadly exotic illnesses found nowhere else in the world? You don’t realize that Africa is the western world’s puppet. We have not progressed because they have suppressed it. Any country that shows just a alight bit of progression, the western media attacks them, and before you can blink your eyes America has sent their soldiers there to kill their so called evil “dictator”. Also come down here and you will see that American citizens themselves are discussing this. It is no secret anymore where the Ebola virus came from. It was bio engineered by Americans with the goal of decreasing the population of black people in Africa. This virus has been locked up in Bio medical labs for years. How else do you think they were able to magically produce the so called “experimental drug” Zmapp.? Last I checked Ebola was only in Africa. So without patients to test, how was America able to manufacture a cure??? I’ll tell you how. They created the virus, and also created the cure. Remember that doctor that fell sick and was flown back to America and given Zmapp and poof now he’s ok? Yeah, it was all a trick. And now he’s about to be the richest man in the world for his successful gullible play. Shine your eyes. America is NO GOOD!!!!

    I actually smell somethg fishy here too. (US Sending Medical Experts to Nigeria to Learn how to Contain Ebola). hmmmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm! I have a strong feeling they have come to infect Nigerians with the virus, hiding under the canopy of learning. Since when did USA start learning from less developed countries???? Please lets do somethg and not only write here for not everybody visits here. Lets use all the madia to campaign and be very very vigilant and careful with those Americans.
