  • Morocco - Liberian Dies in Morocco of Ebola - Internal Affairs Minister Discloses - Update: WHO says, as far as they know, not an ebola case - August 5, 2014

    http://allafrica.com/stories/201408041541.html

    The Minister of Internal Affairs, Mr. Morris Dukuly, has disclosed that a Liberian has died of the deadly Ebola virus in Morocco.

    As a means of containing further spread of the disease, President Johnson-Sirleaf set up a taskforce to help in the fight of the disease and ordered the closure of the country's three land borders.

    Making the disclosure at a news conference held at the Ministry on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, Minister Dukuly, who is also the Vice Chairman on the National Ebola Taskforce, further disclosed that the deceased left the country two days before his death.

    Although Minister Dukuly did not disclose the name of the Liberian, who he said died of Ebola in Morocco, he averred that this means that there are many more people who are carrying the disease unknowingly.

    Against this backdrop, the Internal Affairs Ministry boss called on traditional chiefs to help inform their local people on the threat of the deadly disease.

    "You, traditional chiefs, are the owners of the land, and the land is under threat that I have not seen in my life before," said Minister Dukuly.

    "Tell your people to stop running behind health workers. This may cause them to leave. For instance, Samaritan Purse, one of the partners, wanted to leave Lofa County due to threats they received from local people," he warned.

    "You are the local leaders, tell your people to please support health workers and not to chase them. Samaritan Purse on yesterday said it will not continue because its workers were attacked and chased in Lofa with one of their staff wounded in the process in Foya. Please tell them to stop playing with dead bodies," he warned.

      The report is dated 1st of August, but it isnt totally clear from the details given if this is the disavowed case or a new one. However, this report claims the death occurred two days AFTER leaving Liberia.

      Another report claimed this was a diplomat, so does this marry up with the previous reports?

      If this is a new and seperate case, then this individual passed airport screening before travelling.

      Further clarification needed.

          A: There are many, and because it’s such a large outbreak, we’re starting to see some signs that we didn’t associate with Ebola before. We saw some patients with elevated blood sugar. We’ve seen people dying from what seemed to be a heart attack. We’ve seen people dying from blood loss. We’ve seen people just being overwhelmed by the disease. We don’t have much diagnostic material to work with, so we’re not able to do an EKG to see if it was a heart attack or not.
