A Woman With Ebola Has Escaped Quarantine And Is On The Run In A City Of One Million People!
Sierra Leone officials have desperately appealed for help to locate a woman with the deadly Ebola virus after her family forcibly removed her from a Freetown hospital after she tested positive for the gruesome disease.
Radio stations in Freetown, a city of around 1 million inhabitants, broadcast the appeal find the woman who has been missing since last week.
The Ebola disease has killed 660 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak was reported back in February.
Saudatu Koroma, 32, a resident of the densely populated Wellington neighbourhood, had been admitted to an “isolation ward” while blood samples were tested for the virus, Health ministry spokesman Sidi Yahya Tunis.
The positive results came back last Thursday. She hasn’t been seen since.
“The family of the patient stormed the hospital and forcefully removed her and took her away,” Tunis said. “We are searching for her.”
Fighting one of the world’s deadliest diseases is straining the region’s weak health systems, while a lack of information and suspicion of medical staff has led many to shun treatment.
DOZENS UNACCOUNTED FOR!
Earlier this year, a man in Freetown tested positive for Ebola although he is believed to have caught it elsewhere.
According to health ministry data and officials, dozens of people confirmed by laboratory tests to have Ebola are now unaccounted for in Sierra Leone, where the majority of cases have been recorded in the country’s east.
While international medical organisations have deployed experts to the field in an attempt to contain the outbreak, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said poor health infrastructure and a lack of manpower were hindering their efforts.
“We’re seeing many of these facilities simply don’t have enough people to provide the constant level of care needed,” WHO spokesman Paul Garwood told The Gutter Trash.
There is no cure or vaccine for Ebola, which causes diarrhoea, vomiting and internal and external bleeding.
It can kill up to 90 per cent of those infected, although the mortality rate of the current outbreak is around 60 per cent.
The West African outbreak is the first time that Ebola, which was first discovered in what is now Democratic Republic of Congo in 1976, has appeared in heavily populated urban areas and international travel hubs.
Cases have already been confirmed in Conakry and Monrovia, the capital cities of Guinea and Liberia.
