Medical facilities are fiercely battling the world’s
largest outbreak of the deadly disease. In Sierra Leone’s Kailahun province, the world’s
largest Ebola outbreak continues to spread
through remote villages. One of the few lines of
defence comes from a treatment centre run by the
charity Medicins sans Frontieres (MSF). While there is no specific cure for the disease,
treatment of its symptoms can significantly reduce
its fatality rate. With an overstreched team and a
series of logisitical obstacles inherent in treating a
contagious virus in a remote location, the centre is
doing what it can. “It’s promising to see that the limited amount of
things we can do is having such a major effect,”
says MSF’s Dr Tim Jagatic. “We’re bringing down the
mortality rate significantly”. About four out of 10
patients at the center will survive, he says. A huge
improvement from the 10 percent survivial rate in previous outbreaks. But one crucial problem remains – the chronic fear
of hospitals, fuelled by rumours of limb harvesting
and blood theft, is dissuading people from seeking
medical help. Not only does this increase the risk of death, but by
keeping infected people in the community, and
burying the bodies without professional medical
assistance, it also exacerbates the spread of the
disease. Teams of Red Cross volunteers are doing their best
to teach people to recognise and respect the
danger posed by Ebola. But in a district with nearly
half a million people, there are still many villages yet
to be reached. Others hear the message but are
reluctant to accept it. Winning the trust of the community is key to ending
the current outbreak. But it takes time and
resources that the on-the-ground doesn’t possess.
“We are running behind Ebola,” according to Anja
Wolz, head of MSF’s activities in Kailahun. “I’ve
never seen this before.”…
