US Sends Medical Experts To Study How Nigeria Tamed Ebola by Nobody: 7:40am On Oct 02, 2014
Stunned by the entrance of the Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, into America, the United States’ Center for Disease Control and Prevention has despatched its personnel to study how Nigeria contained the killer disease.
HEALTH PERSONNEL IN PROTECTIVE KITS AT THE NATIONAL HOSPITAL IN ABUJA ON TUESDAY (12/8/14).
HEALTH PERSONNEL IN PROTECTIVE KITS AT THE NATIONAL HOSPITAL IN ABUJA ON TUESDAY
The US reported on Tuesday that it has discovered a case of EVD in Dallas, Texas, but its health officials said “the crisis is under control and the public has nothing to fear.”
A statement released by US CDC Director Tom Frieden said “it’s clear the nation needs a quick and thorough response to its first Ebola patient”
He said although Nigeria was not completely out of the woods, “their extensive response to a single case of Ebola shows that control is possible with rapid, focused interventions.” Apart from Nigeria, the US will also visit Senegal to study its model.
Frieden said “the best practices in Nigeria and Senegal suggest the U.S. should monitor all individuals who may have been exposed to Ebola and establish a dedicated management and response system.”
Senegal has had no new reported cases of Ebola since Sept. 18 while Nigeria has not reported new ones since August 31,
US health officials are expected in Nigeria which it claimed had the best practices in combating Ebola Virus disease which entered into Nigeria through Liberian born American citizen Mr. Patrick Sawyer whose index case was reported on July 20, 2014. Nigeria is expected to officially announce today that the remaining two potential Ebola patients will exit the 21-day observation period.
How Nigeria stopped the spread of Ebola
According to US CDC, “Nigeria’s first reported case of Ebola surfaced July 20, when Patrick Sawyer landed in Lagos from Liberia and exposed 72 other passengers to the virus. Nigeria’s Health officials quickly issued notifications and tracked everybody who may have been in contact with Sawyer.
“Nigeria also established an Ebola Incident Management Center to handle the potential outbreak and developed a staffing plan that executed a social mobilization strategy that reached more than 26,000 households of people living around the contacts of Ebola patients,”
The deadly virus has killed more than 3,000 people in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia in the largest outbreak ever recorded.
How Senegal contained Ebola
Senegal confirmed its first Ebola case Aug. 29 after a man, travelling from Guinea on Aug. 14, took ill and showed symptoms of the disease. This prompted a quick response, including an experienced and trained staff that was prepared to contain the Ebola outbreak. The procedure led to the identification of 67 contacts who were placed under quarantine, monitored for 21 days and showed no symptoms of Ebola.
Panic in America
The man who imported Ebola into US was found to have travelled to Liberia without informing the authorities and did not disclose the nature of his ailment to the nurse that attended to him. Reports from Texas yesterday said that the Nurse who attended to the man has also taken ill for Ebola in Texas.
A spokesman for Texas Health Presbyterian said the patient had walked into a Dallas emergency room on September 26, without knowing that he contacted the deadly virus and left after he was treated. He then returned to the facility on September 28 where it was determined he likely had Ebola and was isolated. He tested positive Tuesday, health officials said.
Following the lapse on the part of the hospital officials, questions are being asked amid panic across the country. The CDC has thus advised that all medical facilities should ask for patients with symptoms consistent with Ebola for their travel history.

How can i be anti-america ? I dont even have time for their smoke-screen world politics. German spies will always be wary of them after BIG-BROTHER-America exposed German leader chancellor's cable via illegal tapping, Nigeria is enough food for thought for me. Anyway i still wish them best of LUCK on the Ebola fight especially when their primary contact cases are small children, poor kids- hope they will be free of ebola eventually, If they like make them meet mr busy-body fashola for Nigeria SMH

Something is fishy, they would not give us their self-acclaimed Ebola cure Zmapp even when we BEGGED for it. And now they are sending medical personnel to learn how we curbed the virus in a nation of over 170Million people?
Foooolish people, what goes around comes around.

America and double standards in all their dealings.
You wanted the virus to ravage Nigeria so Goodluck would seem incapable and clueless before the whole world, now afterall you are coming to learn how the virus was curbed.



What have your intelligence agents offered to our military in their bid to find the chibok girls? I wonder what they are still doing here since they don't co-operate.
We can see who is clueless right now.

Those expert should head to Liberia and Sierra Leone where they can carry out containment test, prevention test and experimental treatment test with their Zmapp experimental drugs.

There is no ebola in Nigeria, so wat are they looking for? Who knows wat new bio-weapon they want to test out this time on Ape Nation? U know some of them still tink blacks are monkeys... sad

RaphaellaDD: That report is wrong. The Liberian man went to the hospital and said that he had been vomiting, he also specified that he just returned from Liberia . The nurse that attended to him gave him antibiotics and told him to go home. She didn't inform the head doctor or arrange for tests to be done.
Anyway, it's good that the US can come to Nigeria seeking help in 1 area at least. There's room for improvement after all.
So how was the independence day for you tongue

They are coming to spread this disease further or I feel they've modified this deadly virus to spread quicker in Nigeria. The moment they leave I have a feeling bad things will happen.

What happen to zmap? We may have issues but then we are strong enough to deal with our problems anytime we want to. For something that made 170m Nigerians to go for salt and water overnight, sure that thing can't survive in Nigeria.

Nigeria should have testing equipments in all our airports,border routes and sea ports.

We should take security seriously and give regard to security personel.
We need to give more pay to security employees so they can focus better on their job.

How we tamed Ebola...
1. Their Doctors should go on strike, so the disease will know its been neglected.

2. Their Government should fire almost all her Doctors, so the disease will know that they don't even send it.

3. Then build containment centers, if the disease know its been neglect and they don't send it, it will walk through the door...
