Quotes

"We can't do anything else because there is no treatment for the virus. The only thing we can do is help the body fight the virus and develop immunity" said Julie Damond, spokeswoman for Médecins Sans Frontières MSF) in West Africa
Even though Korkor said he has been cleared of Ebola, he says that people avoid him. "Now, everywhere in my neighborhood, all the looks bore into me like I’m the plague,” he said. FrontPageAfrica reporter who trailed the Phebe doctor on Cuttington campus Monday observed that people left places when he showed up while friends, students and loved ones avoided his handshake or eat with him [...] “Thanks to God, I am cured. But now I have a new disease: the stigmatization that I am a victim of,” Korkor was quoted by a local radioradio station in Gbarnga. ‘This disease (the stigma) is worse than the fever."
Truckers alleged before media persons that "We were in the queue from the wee hours of Sunday to get our passes cleared and enter the Lofa side, but the officials forced us to stay for hours with no reason" said Vowu Pewee, a trucker of Raipur
"The last time I saw him was in the Ebola isolation ward where I had also been taken after testing positive for Ebola. When he saw me, he said: 'my son what are you doing here'? And he passed by me and wished me well. But a few days later his own condition became very worse and he died" said Korkor
