Ebola in Guinea

    Newer Older

    For the first time in West Africa, a case of Ebola was confirmed on 21 March, three weeks after the first alert of a possible viral haemorrhagic fever emerged from Guinea’s Forest region. Animals such as fruit bats, rodents and monkeys, abundant in the adjacent rain forest, are believed to have served as ‘reservoir’ for the virus. However, once it passed from an infected animal to a human-being, the virus is now ready for human-to-human transmission. Though frightening and very lethal, relatively simple precautions can break the cycle of transmission and stop the epidemic from spreading. The European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) supports MSF, WHO and IFRC in their efforts to contain the epidemic. © EC/ECHO

      I think we can win against the Ebola Virus. The Ebola Virus can be prevented by keeping your body highly alkaline and Stopped by taking specific things that target the virus, take away it's food supply and stop it's replication: www.thehealingfrequency.com/ebola-virus-outbreak-can/
