Thieves Storm Ebola Center In Liberia Two Days After It Opens, Steal Blood Stained Sheets

Posted in: , ,

Yesterday we shared how Ebola is ravaging Liberia, [see photos] and today, a mob descended on an Ebola Isolation Center in a slum in Monrovia, stormed the front gate and stole everything they could!

They stole the few gloves someone had donated after the center ran out, and the chlorine sprayers used to disinfect the bodies of those who die here, all the while hollering that Ebola is a hoax, chanting, “No Ebola in West Point! No Ebola in West Point!” .

They ransacked the protective suits, the goggles, the masks, took mattresses and bedding, utensils and plastic chairs. The police showed up but the crowd intimidated them.

And then mob left with all of the patients, telling them they did not have Ebola but malaria, and that the virus was a hoax. This is just such a nightmare, and will only lead to more infections!

“Everybody left with their own thing. What are they carrying to their homes? They are carrying their deaths. The police were there but they couldn’t contain them. They started threatening the police, so the police just looked at them.

“They said, ‘The president says you have Ebola, but you don’t have Ebola, you have malaria. Get up and go out!’”

Jemimah Kargbo, a health care worker at a clinic next door was a witness to the event and spoke with Buzzfeed and  asked, referencing the early period when newly infected patients begin to show their first symptoms.

“What’s going to happen when they come to our clinic? In two to five days?” “We’re going to turn them around” and send them to a different hospital."

Kargbo said the staff at the clinic have no protective gear. They were already afraid about treating possible Ebola patients, and the riot means more infections as escaped sick patients infect their families, and as looters sleep on mattresses where the Ebola-infected have died.

“We can’t let them turn around and come back and infect us. I have four sons. I am a single mother. I’m not going to let that happen to my children. I’m not going to let anybody infect me, to die of the disease and leave my children.”

Ebola is transmitted through bodily fluids. It has no treatment, besides hydration, no cure, no proven vaccine. Since February, it’s ravaged West Africa, infecting more than 2,000 people in four countries and killing more than 1,100.
