          Ebola: suspected of having caught the virus, a doctor says "niet" at screening ...

          NZEREKRE-The scene takes place in Nz?r?kor?, the epicenter of the Ebola virus epidemic that reappeared last February in Gou?ck?. Since the resurgence of the virus in Kpaghalaye in the sub-prefecture of Soulouta, the reluctance of citizens is slowing down the response.

          What just happened in Nz?r?kor? is an example. Here! A doctor fiercely objected to being tested after showing some signs of contamination.

          " The gentleman came in the morning, the agents who are at the door, took his temperature which read 38.9 ?. They made him wait for a few minutes. They resumed taking the temperature for a second time. was still at 38.9 ?. They waited another twenty minutes and they took again the temperature with two different thermo-flashes, it still displayed 38.9. When we went to see his director, the latter called him to know his position. He indicated where he was.

          When he got there, the gentleman denied that his temperature was 38.9 ?. He denied all the facts. He said his temperature was 37. Since he's a doctor, he had his own thermo-flash, he used it to take his temperature, it was 36. We had to call in the two agents. who were at the start of the school year to testify. However, the man has the flu, but we did everything to allow him to accept that his sample be taken, he refused. He even started calling his parents from all over the place. He said he has to keep the 21 days. We then told him to show us where he was staying so that we could follow him, but he refused. He said he agrees to be followed. Since he is still at the school where he teaches,", said a health official expressing fears of a spread of the virus through the many cases of reluctance.

          For now, the young student confirmed positive is still untraceable. The village of Kpaghalaye where negotiations are underway still remains closed to health authorities. To date, the situation shows a patient hospitalized at the CT-Epi of Gou?ck?, 164 contacts including 47 followed, a rate of 29%.

          To be continued?

          • New Ebola outbreak kills 3 in Guinea: Africa CDC

            (Xinhua) 10:41, April 07, 2021

            ADDIS ABABA, April 7 (Xinhua) -- The west African country of Guinea has detected five Ebola virus cases and three Ebola-related deaths over the past one week, the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) said Tuesday.

            Africa CDC, the specialized healthcare agency of the 55-member African Union, said the five new Ebola cases put the overall number of cases detected in the continent to 35, 18 of which resulted in fatalities.

            "Guinea has detected a total of 23 Ebola cases out of which 12 resulted in deaths while nine other patients recovered," the Africa CDC said.

            "The Democratic Republic of Congo has detected a total of 12 Ebola cases out of which six resulted in deaths while six other patients recovered," the Africa CDC added.

            • Ebola in Kpagalaye: failure of negotiations between religious and women demonstrators

              By Mohamed Bangoura The district of Kpagalaye, epicenter of the second wave of the Ebola epidemic, will remain closed in front of the Ebola response actors.


              In question, the negotiations started since the morning of this Wednesday by the religious leaders did not make it possible to put an end to the reluctance of the population in particular, the women who are hostile to the teams of sensitization and vaccination.


              The women expressed their categorical refusal for the vaccination. The priests did everything and raised awareness, but it didn't work. It was a large assembly which brought together youth, women, elders and notables. The women said no way to raise awareness. We had done our duty, it did not work because the population does not want to understand anything. Some accuse others of having collected money to facilitate the vaccination. There is disinformation behind it all , ? said Alphonse Goumou, councilor at Soulouta town hall.


              Kpagalaye therefore remains the zone closed to anti-Ebola agents. Meanwhile, the first Ebola patient remains untraceable as several contacts go about their business.


              The prefectural director of health also deplores the unsafe community burials in the village.

              • N'Z?r?kor?: Gbakalaye still refuses Ebola response teams
                by :Alpha Oumar Bald

                Wednesday, April 07, 2021 at 10:10 a.m.

                Ebola response teams operating in the capital of Forest Guinea, epicenter of the Ebola virus, since December 2021, have faced reluctance in the district of Gbakalaye.

                Indeed, for four days already, this locality in the sub-prefecture of Soulouta, has been closed to Ebola response teams. And this has the consequence of not following up at least of Gbakalaye's 96 contacts.

                According to our information, this reluctance is explained by the refusal of old "Zogo" who are the guardians of the tradition in the Kp?l? country. They categorically reject the return of the response teams, despite the intervention of national sons residing in N'Z?r?kor?.

                Note that for the time being, the cumulative number of confirmed cases is 16, for 7 hospitalized deaths and 46 contacts followed out of a total of 164 contacts to follow.

                          EVENT DESCRIPTION

                          A new confirmed case of Ebola virus disease (EVD) was reported
                          on 25 April 2021 from the sub-prefecture of Soulouta. As of 4
                          April 2021, a total of 23 cases have been reported, including
                          16 confirmed cases, and 7 probable cases, of which 9 have
                          recovered, and 12 have died (case fatality ratio 52.2%).

                          The subprefecture of Soulouta remains active (2 confirmed cases
                          and 3 probable cases reported in the past 21 days), while Samoe and
                          Nzerekore-Centre are on alert. The number of health workers
                          infected remains five.

                          Most of the confirmed and probable cases reported are female
                          (13/23; 60.9%) and the most affected age group are those over
                          40 years.

                          As of 4 April 2021, a total of 43 (29%) out of 149 contacts have
                          been followed up in Nzerekore. A total of 101 contacts have been
                          vaccinated. There were 19 alerts notified, all in Nzerekore, on 4
                          April 2021, of which 11 (58%) were investigated within 24 hours.
                          Of these, eight were validated, six of which were deaths that were
                          all sampled.

                          PUBLIC HEALTH ACTIONS

                          Daily incident management system meetings take place with
                          WHO, following up on field operations.

                          Community resistance prevented response measures,
                          including vaccination, in the village of Gbakalaye, Soulouta
                          on 4 April 2021; discussions around interventions are
                          underway.

                          A cumulative total of 4 565 people have been vaccinated,
                          including 288 high-risk contacts, 3 835 contacts-of-contacts
                          and 442 probable contacts, including 1 985 frontline workers.
                          Four patients, one confirmed and three suspected, are
                          currently hospitalized in the Epidemic Diseases Hospital
                          treatment centre.

                          Risk communication and community engagement (RCCE)
                          included identifying, briefing and deploying community
                          workers to work with the surveillance team; a review of all
                          deaths from 12 March 2021 to date is being supported, with
                          input from the socio-anthropologists; people and resources
                          are being identified for community monitoring and promotion
                          of prevention measures.

                          SITUATION INTERPRETATION

                          The EVD outbreak in Guinea, although appearing to be largely
                          under control, is up against serious challenges, not least
                          community resistance to response measures in the village of
                          Gbakalyaye, Soulouta, where the last two confirmed cases and
                          three probable cases were reported.
                          A new confirmed case at day
                          35 of the countdown to the end of the pandemic has changed
                          the dynamics of the response and strengthened surveillance is
                          required, specifically increasing the number of alerts and the
                          number of samples tested in Nzerekore and neighbouring health
                          districts. In addition, all alerts need to be investigated within 24
                          hours, sampling as many suspected cases (including deaths)
                          as possible and isolating all suspected and confirmed patients.
                          Urgent attention is required to close the current funding gap in
                          the response plan budget in order to ensure a timely and quality
                          response.

                            Ebola in Kpagalaye: women lift the blockade after tough negotiations

                            Mohamed bangouraBy Mohamed Bangoura

                            It took many negotiations and negotiations for the women of the district of Kpagalaye to agree to allow the arrival of teams to fight against Ebola.

                            After the failure of priests and local authorities, it is the Zowho women (traditional leaders) who have just lifted the harsh reluctance opposed by the population since last week.

                            ?We went to meet the women and they expressed their dissatisfaction to us and demanded to bring the patient who is hospitalized at the treatment center. Immediately, we did not delay in bringing in the latter who is already healed. This reassured them a lot. His wife, who is hospitalized at the CT-EPI, was also contacted by phone. She explained the realities of the center. This is what relieved the population who gave their consent for doctors to carry out their activities without fear. All is well now in the village but there are small sacrifices to be made to eliminate some curses made during their demonstrations, ? said Marie No?l Balamou, women leaders and traditional communicator.

                            This is news that relieved the members of the prefectural coordination of the fight against Ebola on Friday. According to the regional health director, all response activities can start on Saturday morning. These include awareness raising, tracing of contacts and suspected cases, vaccination and epidemiological surveillance.

                                Ebola: the resistance of the Guinean village of Kpaghalaye against the "response"

                                Published on : 04/11/2021 - 04:02

                                Ebola has reappeared in Guinea since the beginning of 2021. 23 cases have been reported, including five deaths, in the region of Nz?r?kor?, in the south of the country. In this forest Guinea close to the borders of Liberia and C?te d'Ivoire, the village of Kpaghalaye is resisting the interventions of the "response", the team responsible for fighting the epidemic. They have not been able to return there since the beginning of the month. Older women oppose it.

                                They put on the loincloth in which they traditionally initiate young girls, which is supposed to command respect. Since the beginning of the month, the elderly women of Kpaghalaye have blocked the entrance to the village to medical teams, who are responsible for identifying Ebola cases and vaccinating the population.

                                Installed a few kilometers away, to help the Guinea Infectious Disease Research and Training Center, anthropologist Fr?d?ric Le Marcis believes that the traumas linked to the previous epidemic are still in people's minds: ? We must remember that during Ebola in the first epidemic, 70 % of people treated in treatment centers died. And this situation, which was related to the lack of effective treatment, at the time aroused among the population a feeling of fear and anguish, assimilating the therapeutic response in fact to a disguised desire to exterminate the population. "

                                Mutual distrust
                                ? In addition to that, in the same region where the epidemic is unfolding today, is the village of Womey where in 2014 a delegation that came to do prevention was murdered, cut into pieces and thrown in the toilet. of the village, ?recalls Fr?d?ric Le Marcis. This event remained at the heart of the memory of the population and of the Response.

                                Reciprocal mistrust explains the communication errors of La Riposte. When the first case of Ebola appeared in Kpaghalaye, the person was taken to the Epidemic Treatment Center (CT-Epi) without informing the other villagers, who today refuse any intervention, including vaccination. Which does not mean, believes the anthropologist, that this resistance will last forever.

                                APRIL 12, 2021 AT 6:27 P.M. BY AFP

                                The vaccination campaign against Ebola hemorrhagic fever has resumed in Kpaghalaye, a village in southern Guinea whose women have blocked access to health personnel for several days, we learned from health authorities on Monday. "The vaccination began immediately on Saturday morning since the women lifted the siege on Friday evening," Sory II K?ira, the communications officer of the National Health Security Agency (ANSS), told AFP.
