    Ebola Suspected cases tested negative in Mali

    September 6, 2014 at 10:28 AM

    This Friday, September 5, 2014, the technical teams of the Department of Health and Public Hygiene, were on foot at work to carry out investigations on patients and a deceased person all with suspected to be infected by the disease Ebola virus. The analysis of the sample gave negative results.

    Among the various suspects, a woman from the village of Baboto, admitted to CSRef of Sitakili, rural town of the same name, circle Kéniéba.
    The patient has been declared by the village chief of Baboto to the physician of the mining company Randgold in the person of Dr. Mama Kanta . After examination by the medical team, it turned out that the lady was suffering from high blood pressure for which she is currently being supported.

    Another suspected case: a young woman, evacuated of Sanankoroba for the Hospital of Mali. Following the examination, it turned out that this patient had a crisis similar to diabetes . The third case, a white traveler from Guinea was admitted since 48 hours at the Point G CHU where he sadly passed away two days ago.

    The examination of swabs from his body by the advanced laboratory Serefo have tested negative for the disease Ebola. In total, all three suspects were tested negative. Moreover, Mali has recorded no cases of Ebola at the moment. Faced with rumors often circulating here and there, health officials reassured the public that the predisposed technical teams will not neglect any detail that might disrupt the response strategy against the menace. Better, the community involvement is welcomed in the fight against Ebola.

    For the department of health, "a false alarm is better than a bad surprise." That's why each alert, serious or not, is the subject of an examination in the laboratory. This to avoid that any detail underestimated can not remain detrimental to a prevention that works well....

      Mali: A French dies at the hospital POINT G Bamako, hot Ebola alert

      He arrived in the emergency room of the Point G Hospital under the name of "Jean-François." He is a former captain of the French army. Upon retirement, he became "a businessman". He is in the mines. Guinea, a country neighboring Mali where Ebola has claimed many victims, is a land of adoption of the French former military. Indeed he would have done on site business in the mines.

      Three weeks ago, Jean-François arrived in Bamako from Guinea . his goal is to do business. He settled initially in Sébénikoro district that you cross inevitably when arriving from Guinea by road. . He has fever. is fiévreux.

      High fever! ! He also has diarrhea. Symptoms of Ebola. Commotion. Panic on board. One of the friends of the patient, leads him to a private clinic.

      In reality, a health center. The patient revealed his identity, says his itinerary.

      So 'You come from Guinea, a country where Ebola does damage? asks the nurse

      Yes, answered painfully the patient. This response is synonymous with "nuclear bomb" in the small health center. The nurse removes his blouse and run off. A pregnant woman came in consultation runs off in turn. Two youth injured in a motorcycle accident and came for care, scamper in turn.

      "He has Ebola, he has Ebola, I can not return to my own clinic. He has Ebola Call the fire brigade! Call the fire brigade! yells the nurse who meanwhile got rid of his blouse, his shoes before plunging his hands into the chlorinated water, since he had touched a patient.

      Very quickly, the patient is left alone in the care center. Even his accompanist run off.

      Firefighters arrived on the scene. Hands hidden in gloves, protective suits on the body, masks on face, they evacuate Jean-François to Hospital G-spot.

      The hospital emergency services receive the patient, fear in the stomach. Intensive care is provided. The medical staff is a bit worried. Despite the treatment, the temperature of the French citizen takes the elevator.

      Panic reigns in the emergency department, headed by Dr. D. Djénèba

      On the night of Thursday to Friday, doctors attending on duty practically in direct assist to the death of the French national. Everyone is on the alert. The general feeling is that the French national who comes from Guinea has died from Ebola.

      Samples are taken. Analyzes made. And then ... ..the relief. The tests were negative. The French has not died of Ebola. Two other suspects will be test: Negative!

      More fear than harm! Finally, the Ministry of Health will release the following statement:

      "This Friday, September 5, 2014, the technical teams of the Department of Health and Public Hygiene were hard at work to carry out investigations on patients and a deceased person with suspected disease Ebola virus.

      Analysis of the samples yielded negative results.

        Fric Frac-: Controversy alert of Ebola in Sadiola

        9/9/2014 4:07

        A shadow of the Ebola virus appeared last week in the mining area of Kayes. What was announced as the first confirmed case in Mali has only been a long controversy more or less resolved by the results of samples analyzed in Bamako. One can be glad that is not yet Ebola, but the behavior of the health authorities arouses concerns.

        The information spread and speculation immediately followed last week in the Malian capital, at a speed proportional to the collective fear and the terror of Ebola in the West African sub-region. And because the alert came from hundreds of kilometers from Bamako, precisely Sadiola, a dense village where mining activities make hardly controllable the human crowds.

        Health authorities took the threat very seriously, judging at least by the rapid mobilization of masked men in stride. "Teams have been deployed to the scene following a warning of local people," acknowledged a senior official of health, adding also that there is no basis to assert that this is a case confirmed. Overlap fact, he is back saying that this is a Guinean patient working in mines and vomiting blood in the private clinic where he was admitted. Following an alert from his doctor, teams converged soon from Bamako and Kayes. Their mission consisted, according to our sources, to take a sample for analysis in the laboratories of the capital. Meanwhile, the rumor spreads like wild in Malian medical community on a confirmed case, sparking controversy in conversations of a closed circle of specialists in public health. Some focusing on a confirmed case, the other defending that there was no evidence .

        The controversy gained further in scope after the death of the patient identified as a suspect case in Sadiola. Indeed, he succumbed to his illness in circumstances unsolved before the samples came to confirmed that Ebola is not the cause of his death. The alternative hypothesis was all the more disturbing that the patient would have the time to spread the virus in its immediate environment, and for good reason: nothing has been done to prevent such an eventuality apparently between his death and the outcome of the sample testing. Should we rely on the efficiency of our health facilities in case the arrival very likely of danger in our walls ?
