Latest Ebola News

The current Ebola death toll stands at 3,338 Ebola related deaths.

Since the first case of Ebola was confirmed in the United States Americans have been in a frenzy to find out as much information about Ebola as possible.  People are wondering why the Dallas Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, was allowed to enter the United States.   Well, according to Liberian officials, it’s because he lied on his exiting documents.   He said he had not come into contact with anyone with Ebola.

Whether the Dallas Ebola patient lied or not is still in question.  Apparently, he helped a pregnant women get into a taxi and it turned out that she was an Ebola victim.  He probably did not know she had Ebola.  Regardless, Liberian officials are planning to prosecute the man when he returns to his homeland.  Liberian Airport Authority Chairman Binyah Kesselly told reporters, “He will be prosecuted.”  He continued to say that people like Thomas Eric Duncan and Patrick Sawyer have brought a stigma upon Liberians who live abroad.

In other Ebola news, a man thought to have died from Ebola woke up after the burial team had wrapped him up for burial.  According to angry people in the area, they don’t send help for Ebola victims until they die.  They said the man had waited for weeks to get help and then when it appeared he had died the burial team showed up within an hour.   Then nearly lifeless man moved his arm and once they realized he was alive they took him in for help.  The previously angry mob cheered for the man for finally getting help.
