    The Ebola epidemic has left 179 health workers dead and forced the closure of countless medical facilities. These facilities are now gradually re-opening. Monrovia has just two public hospitals and, like many other medical facilities, one of them, JDJ, closed at the height of the Ebola epidemic. But activities at the hospital, which delivers emergency paediatric and maternity care, are gradually resuming. MSF is helping by supplying protective equipment and providing training on infection control measures. "The measures that are being put in place, I think they are really going to improve our general condition in hospitals, we're going to feel more confident, it will improve the kind of services that we give to the people (...)

  • Health Care in Liberia, in the Time of Ebola

    Soon there will be 700 beds for treating Ebola patients in Monrovia. But medical staff are among the first victims, and in the Liberian capital, half of the health centers are shut and just one hospital is functioning. Many of the city’s inhabitants—pregnant women, children suffering from malnutrition or malaria and road casualties—are without access to medical care. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is concerned with protecting health workers providing all kinds of medical care.

  • Liberia Health System Collapsing As Ebola Spreads

    Liberia’s foreign minister said on Thursday, the health care system in Liberia is collapsing, hospitals closing down and medical workers fleeing from the Ebola epidemic, which is poised to worsen. Minister of Foreign Affairs Augustine Kpehe Ngafuan said in an interview with Thomson Reuters Foundation, “People are dying from common diseases because the health care system is collapsing. It is going to have a long-term impact, even after this crisis is behind us.” Treatable diseases such as malaria and diarrhea are left untended because frightened Liberians are shunning medical centers, and these deaths could outstrip those from the Ebola virus by three or four fold. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/1tjgi2iQvvo/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

    To say medical supplies and healthcare personnel are in short supply in Liberia would be a vast understatement. Liberia Vice President Joseph Boakai and his delegation met with healthcare leaders in the northwest metro to emphasize that point. Earlier this year, the Ebola virus crippled the republic still recovering from a devastating civil war. More than 4800 people died from the Ebola virus, which included many medical personnel. Basic supplies like gloves and syringes are still scarce. "It's nothing like you see here," says Vice President Boakai. "Without good health, there's nothing we can do." Many Liberians and volunteers from the northwest metro have led the way in rebuilding efforts. Brooklyn Park Fire Chief Ken Prillaman has organized firefighting donation efforts and training ...

    The final Chinese medical team dispatched to Liberia has returned home after concluding its two-month anti-Ebola mission. The West African country has now declared the eradication of the epidemic which first struck early last year. The 42-member team arrived back at Beijing Capital International Airport early on Saturday, along with Chinese rescuers and relief workers. "In total, our team received 177 Ebola cases and we treated 110 patients. There were 10 confirmed cases, six of them were cured and discharged from hospital. So we can say that we have successfully fought the outbreak with zero infection, as President Xi commanded," said a member of the medical team. Following the worst outbreak of Ebola for over 30 years, China was one of the first countries to send aid to West Africa,...

The Ebola epidemic has left 179 health workers dead and forced the closure of countless medical facilities. These facilities are now gradually re-opening. Monrovia has just two public hospitals and, like many other medical facilities, one of them, JDJ, closed at the height of the Ebola epidemic. But activities at the hospital, which delivers emergency paediatric and maternity care, are gradually resuming. MSF is helping by supplying protective equipment and providing training on infection control measures. "The measures that are being put in place, I think they are really going to improve our general condition in hospitals, we're going to feel more confident, it will improve the kind of services that we give to the people (...) Because one mistake will lead to your own death. So you have to be careful about what you do. But the most important thing is I hope this will be sustainable, even after the outbreak we should continue with these measures." Said Docteur Yatta Sackie-Wapoe, directrice médicale de JDJ hospital. These measures require stringent triage of incoming patients to rapidly identify potential Ebola cases, wearing protective clothing adapted to the type of treatment being delivered and complying with rigorous hygiene protocols. All these measures call for a radical change in behaviour, which can be difficult to implement when the epidemic appears to be abating. "Even the health workers, some of them are letting their guard down, they don't think there are a lot of cases around (...) There's a need for us to know that one case means an epidemic. So people should continue to have all those preventive measures in place, so that people cannot get infected and start the circle all over again" said Docteur Yatta Sackie-Wapoe, medical director of JDJ Hospital. Along with assisting the resumption in medical activities, MSF teams continue to be actively involved in combatting haemorrhagic fever. Oxford University launched a clinical trial at the beginning of January at Elwa 3, MSF’s Ebola treatment centre in Monrovia, to assess the efficacy and tolerance of antiviral drug Brincidofovir. All patients contracting the virus can participate.

Brooklyn Park Fire Chief Ken Prillaman has organized firefighting donation efforts and training opportunities for Liberians. Now he will assist healthcare leaders in how to best lend their assistance and expertise. Some healthcare personnel, like Dr. Pat Lilja of North Memorial Ambulance, have already been on a mission to Liberia and can attest to the need. "There are very little emergency services," says Lilja. "Emergency departments do a tremendous job, but they are short of supplies, so the purpose to see if we in the U.S. and particularly in Minnesota could in any way strengthen the healthcare system in the republic of Liberia." So far two fire trucks, one ambulance, and many supplies have been donated and await transport to Liberia. Fundraising efforts are underway to pay for shipping costs. A fundraiser honoring Vice President Joseph Boakai is planned for Sunday, October 25 at Passion Events Center in Fridley. Tickets are $100 and doors open at 5 p.m. Shannon Slatton, reporting http://www.ccxmedia.org https://www.facebook.com/ccxmedia.org/ http://twitter.com/ccxsports http://twitter.com/ccxnews Learn about our mobile app - http://bit.ly/CH12app Channel 12 is on Comcast cable in the northwest suburbs of Minneapolis and includes the cities Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, Golden Valley, Maple Grove, New Hope, Osseo, Plymouth and Robbinsdale.

So we can say that we have successfully fought the outbreak with zero infection, as President Xi commanded," said a member of the medical team. Following the worst outbreak of Ebola for over 30 years, China was one of the first countries to send aid to West Africa, with three batches of medical teams sent to combat the crisis. China also opened a 100-bed treatment center in November last year in the Liberian capital of Monrovia, helping treat patients and providing local medical personnel with training. Overall, the facility received and treated more than 1,000 Ebola patients. Liberia had its first reported Ebola case in late March 2014. However, on May 9, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the country is now free of Ebola virus transmission. Since the latest outbreak started more than a year ago in Guinea, over 4,700 of the 10,500 people who contracted the hemorrhagic fever in Liberia have died, according to the latest WHO figures.
