Highlight stigmatization in Ebola awareness campaign

The death toll of Ebola victims has now reached 3,083, while there are 6,553 cases. The figures are based on information provided on September 23 by the Ministries of Health in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone- the countries most impacted by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia told world leaders at the United Nations last week that at least 85 of Liberia's more than 1,700 Ebola victims were healthcare workers. Despite their vulnerability due to the risk they take in attending to suspected and confirmed Ebola patients at the treatment centers in the country, very little appreciation seems to be characterizing the dangerous work health workers are currently doing.

Ebola: Hailing the progress

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has been regarded deadliest ever to date. The World Health Organization or WHO has even declared the current outbreak of the disease- a viral illness of which the initial symptoms can include a sudden fever, intense weakness, muscle pain and a sore throat, as an international health emergency, owing to its high and growing fatalities of more than 2,461 deaths up to mid-September in the region. Of the 2,461 deaths in the region, Liberia has a total of 1, 424- a figure which concerns deaths in confirmed, probable and suspected cases of Ebola, according to  the latest update released midweek by the Liberian Ministry of health and Social Welfare.

Abandoning Liberia in crisis is unpatriotic

When the second outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease or EVD first hit Liberia in March of this year and started to spread at an alarming rate, many Liberians, especially public officials left the country unceremoniously. In the wake of a national response of the disease, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf publicly issued a directive, regarding restrictions on foreign travels, but some officials of the Liberian Government chose to ignore the President, especially those without excuse.
