Ghana Bans Flights From Nigeria Over Ebola Concerns

Health workers teach people about the Ebola virus

Ghana has, reportedly, officially banned flights from four West African countries, citing concerns about the rapid spread of the Ebola virus, which has claimed over 600 lives.

Charles Asare, Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company, said the measure was part of a set of emergency management plans officials are rolling out to combat the spread of the virus. The affected countries include Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Nigeria.

The government there has also implemented strict restrictions on the movement and management of Liberian refugees in camps in the country. Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman-Mensah, urged Ghanaians to bear with the government as they work to contain the virus.
"Preparedness is not an event but a process," he said.

Research About Kolanut Curing Ebola is Inconclusive

 
 
News that bitter kola cures Ebola is trending right now and everyone is quoting this post by BBC that was written 15 years ago - it's actually dated August 5, 1999.

They used a compound from Garcinia kola, a plant commonly eaten in West Africa. Compounds from the plant have also proved effective against some strains of flu. If the anti-Ebola compound proves successful in animal and human trials, it will be the first medicine to successfully treat the virus that causes Ebola haemorrhagic fever - an often-fatal condition.

Nigeria Quarantines 2 People over Ebola



Nigeria's Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu has announced that two people who had "primary contact" with Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian man who died of Ebola in Lagos last week, have been quarantined and 69 placed under medical surveillance.

AFP reports that Mr Chukwu told reporters in Abuja:
"We are tracking all those with primary contact with a view to deciding those who must be quarantined and those who will just remain under surveillance. As at today 69 are under surveillance and two quarantined," he said, adding that "they will remain under the surveillance until a period of three weeks at least".


Spread by close contact with an infected person through bodily fluids such as sweat, blood and tissue, Ebola can fell victims within days, causing severe fever and muscle pain, vomiting and diarrhoea -- and in some cases, organ failure and unstoppable bleeding.
