Na wa for this ”Ebola Virus” Oh! SEE SOMETHING [Obama’s summit with African leaders]
So do we now have to be dressing in gloves and raincoat now, covering our heads looking like masquerade? just like the picture you see above. If you are not afraid then you need to start praying as you read more!
The US President; Barack Obama will be having a summit on Monday at the White House, with all the Presidents of the key African nations, excluding: Ebola-plagued Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. And as of now, the African Ebola epidemic, the largest on record, is not officially on the summit agenda.As their epidemics spin out of control in a contagion more than three times larger than any prior Ebola outbreak, Presidents Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of Liberia, Alpha Condé of Guinea and Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone are staying home. They are taking drastic measures in hopes of slowing the spread of the deadly hemorrhagic disease: Banning public gatherings, closing schools, deploying their armies to stop attacks on health workers and maintain quarantines.
It is pitty that Sirleaf, Condé and Koroma will not be able to plead their nations’ cases at the White House summit.
There is great danger that the fear of the virus spreading globally will stigmatize Liberians, Sierra Leonians and Guineans, and that their West African neighbors, especially Nigeria’, will try to ward off Ebola Virus by isolating the countries in a way that it may their fragile economies, further imperiling the health of their people.
It is time to take a cold, clear look at the implications of this out-of-control epidemic and think carefully about what steps the international community should take next.
