Ebola: Liberians Dying Of Ignorance, Say Aid Workers
More than 300 Liberians have been infected by the tropical virus, which has been raging in west Africa’s forests since the start of the year. More than half of those who have caught the disease have died. But aids workers warn that it is ignorance over Ebola, rather than the virus itself, that is pushing up the death toll. Kendell Kauffeldt, the director in Liberia of Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse says “The ministry of health has established protocols. There are hotline numbers that people have to call. And when you call there are ambulances, with trained people on board who are protected, to take the patient to hospital.”
