The signs and symptoms of Ebola disease And how to prevent it
So Sad it’s no longer news that a Liberian man named Patrick Sawyer has brought the deadly Ebola Virus into Nigeria, Guys I must tell you that we are looking at an epidemic. It was reported that atleast 30 people who had contact with the man in the hospital are now being tested, but what of other people he met on his way to the Nigeria/hospital i.e taxi driver, pilot, air hostess, hotel Attendant etc Then how many people did these people have contact with? in reality we are looking at over 3000 contacts.
Now we are dealing with something we aren’t even adequately prepared to handle. Medical facilities do not have the hazard suits and do not know the protocol for handling these cases. Its sad.
But Early Detection Might just save A life, here are some signs and symptoms of Ebola disease. Make sure you Read And Share this Post to your family members and friends
