"Currently, some measures taken by our neighbors could make the fight against Ebola even harder," Aboubacar Sidiki Diakité told Reuters . "When children are not supervised, they can go anywhere and make the problem worse. It is part of what we will be talking about."
"A lot of health workers are getting infected, and they're afraid," said Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah. "Every patient who goes to a facility during this outbreak should be an Ebola suspect until it is proven otherwise."
...there is no available cure or treatment for the disease yet, Frieden warned this particular outbreak will take three to six months to suppress. "CDC, along with others, are surging to begin to turn the tide. It is not going to be quick. It is not going to be easy. But we know what to do. The current outbreak is bad. It's the biggest, the most complex, and the first time it's been present in this region."
"I think the key risk is for health workers. When someone comes (to hospital) with fever and some other symptoms health workers just have to ask where the person has been in the past month. If the answer is Sierra Leone then the red light should be flashing, and then that will require referral to a specialised unit, and the hospitals here are prepared for that."
