    Ebola claims third victim at same Spanish charity
    POSTED: 12 Aug 2014 02:48

    A Spanish charity announced on Monday (Aug 11) a third member of staff at its hospital in Liberia has died of Ebola, saying it fears a lack of basic safety precautions let the virus spread through its team.

    MADRID: A Spanish charity announced on Monday (Aug 11) a third member of staff at its hospital in Liberia has died of Ebola, saying it fears a lack of basic safety precautions let the virus spread through its team.

    The charity's Ebola-struck hospital in the capital Monrovia has been shuttered, three of its personnel have now died and another, an elderly Spanish priest with Ebola, has been evacuated to Madrid for treatment.

    The latest Ebola victim from the Saint Joseph's Catholic Hospital is Ghanaian priest George Combey, who died of the virus overnight, his Roman Catholic order said in a statement. "We wish to show our support to George Combey's family at this difficult time," said the Hospitaller Brothers of St. John of God, which created the Juan Ciudad ONGD international aid group.

    The haemorrhagic virus killed the hospital's director, Cameroon-born Patrick Nshamdze, on August 2 and a week later it claimed the life of a nun at the same hospital, Chantal Pascaline, from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

    It is not known exactly how the third victim contracted Ebola, said the order's spokeswoman, Adriana Castro. But a test had wrongly shown the first victim, the hospital director, to be free of Ebola before his death, the spokeswoman told AFP...

              Danger Lurks in Monrovia: Ebola Patients Flee W. Point Isolation
              Written by FPA Staff Report
              Published: 16 August 2014

              Monrovia-Concerns continue to mount over the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare’s handling of the Ebola virus heightening fears that the virus could spread faster than expected in Liberia.


              In the West Point community Saturday, seventeen (17) suspected and some confirmed Ebola patients escaped an isolation center late in the evening.

              Sam Tarplah, a registered nurse who is managing the self-initiative isolation center early Saturday morning took journalists on a tour of a facility where the positive Ebola patients were being kept in isolation.

              From a concrete fence and a building with half transparent windows, the Ebola patients are visibly seen at the center with those who are a little stronger communicating loudly.

              “I have been here one week, one shouted; your bring us food”, he said, refusing to call his name. Nurse Tarplah told reporters that some of the people kept at the center at the MV Massaquoi School were diagnosed positive and told to be in isolation at home because of insufficient space at the ELWA isolation center.

              Tarplah said knowing the risk the presence of these Ebola positive patients will cause the community when they at home, he decided to keep them in one location though not in the same room.

              According to him, there were a total of 29 persons that the center but nine had died over the last few days. A day ago, he said one of the patient very weak, fell on his forehead and died...

                Insight - Struggling Liberia creates 'plague villages' in Ebola epicentre
                By Eric Telmor and Emma Farge
                BOYA Liberia/DAKAR Sun Aug 17, 2014 1:23pm BST

                (Reuters) - To try to control the Ebola epidemic spreading through West Africa, Liberia has quarantined remote villages at the epicentre of the virus, evoking the "plague villages" of medieval Europe that were shut off from the outside world.

                With few food and medical supplies getting in, many abandoned villagers face a stark choice: stay where they are and risk death or skip quarantine, spreading the infection further in a country ill-equipped to cope...

                        Liberia: Ebola Hits Bassa Second Populous District - One Confirmed, Six Suspected
                        By Alpha Daffae Senkpeni

                        The Town has just a public clinic which has fewer than 10 nurses who have said their lives are at risk

                        Wee District, Grand Bassa County - One person has been confirmed an Ebola patient in District Three (Wee Statutory District), with six others who came in direct contact with the patient being tracked by the Grand Bassa County Ebola Task Force.

                        District authorities confirmed the presence of the virus in the densely populated community of Compound Three, a settlement with over 25,000 people, as denying that the deadly virus doesn't exist still lingers amongst many residents in the area.

                        Sources say, the patient, a woman, arrived in the district a week ago from Dolo Town, Margibi County and felt very ill before her relatives opted to take her to a nearby town where an herbalist's healing failed to recuperate her.

                        But when the family resolved to take her to the only public clinic in the district's main town, her specimen was then sent to the Ebola Lab in Charlesville and proved positive...

                          Liberia: Ebola Deaths Hit 40 in G/Bassa
                          19 August 2014

                          The Government of Liberia has resolved to quarantine the entire Dolo's Town Community adjacent the Firestone Rubber Plantation in Margibi County.

                          A resident of the town who fled to District #1 in Grand Bassa is reported to have also said the Ebola virus have claimed the lives of over 40 persons in Grand Bassa County.

                          The disclosure was made by Senators Peter S. Coleman and Nyonblee Kangar-Lawrence Tuesday in Monrovia. Senator Coleman told the Senate that there has been a massive spread of the virus from Dolo's Town to district # 1 in Grand Bassa County.

                          Senator Coleman told plenary that security checkpoints have been set up between Nimba-Grand Gedeh and RiverCess-Sinoe counties.

                          He explained that movement to these and other areas will be limited to avoid the spread of the virus to other parts of the country.

                          He revealed that C.B. Dunbar Catholic and C.H. Rennie Hospitals have been shut down due to the outbreak...
