Sympathetic view of Ebola

02 September 2014, 07:48 Jibunor George Chuks

How many viruses will they continue to discover in Africa, no other place but Africa alone? Since 1976 of its first discovery in Congo to 2012; how many people have been infected with this so-called Ebola Virus?

I don't think they have given us any statistical analysis on that. Which means since 1976 to 2012 about 37 years, that the Ebola Virus Disease has been growing, but under whose care? Please who is deceiving who? For complete 37 years, a virus has been growing to maturity until early 2013 and has killed 1000 people and above just within a short period when it has been in existence for over 37 years and above and has killed no one since then.

The country it was discovered in, why does it not have the highest number of victims? The virus has been killing people since last year and yet nothing was done by WHO, how sympathetic the whole issue is.

Patrick Sawyer brought the disease to Nigeria, that was how the world got to know about the deadly disease called Ebola. Who haa been hiding it before from the world?  Two American doctors that was infected with the virus were treated with the experimental American Zmapp drug, are perfectly okay while the other two non citizens of America that were treated with the same experimental drug are dead. What is more to this?

I just heard the words of Peter Piot, the scientist that co-discovered it in 1976. These were his statements; Outbreak is the perfect storm. That the virus is only exploding in countries where health service are not functioning, ravaged by decade of civil war. Trust must be restored, that nothing can be done in an epidemic like Ebola Virus Disease(EVD) if there is no trust. This is an awful and a bizarre statement.

These people have made themselves god who now sends afflictions so as to test the trust of African people. Ebola Virus Disease is a deliberate act by the whites. I must commend the federal government of Nigeria for their efforts so far. Thus, I know this is equally an avenue for some sympathetic wicked individuals in the government to make more money by channelling most of the funds provided for this course to their personal accounts. Don't forget, we must all give an account of how we lived our life. God deliver us from the hands of the wicked ones.
