STORYLINE:
A regional coordinator for the fight against the Ebola virus claimed the disease was worse than a “rebel war.”
Ayoub Ishmeal, regional coordinator for the fight against Ebola, said on July 27th 2014 that unlike gunshots you cannot run away from the deadly virus.
“Yesterday when there was fighting, when they were shooting you hear the gunshots and run away to Moyamba Junction. But if I have Ebola, the boys around me will not know and they will be happy to see me and then I could infect them,” said Ishmeal.
Ebola is one of the most contagious and deadly diseases in the world.
