  •   caealn @connorirvine02 First outbreak was 1976 in Sudan. There was 284 cases. The 2014 outbreak in West africa has by far taken the most casualties, but it has been around (confirmed cases) for about 38 years. Ebola is definitely not fake.

worldhealthorganization "#Ebola is the enemy. If we don’t chase Ebola, it will kill us. You have to know Ebola to fight Ebola. Mobilize your people. Let’s get to know Ebola.”
- Dr Peter Clement, WHO in Liberia

When Dr Clement arrived in Lofa County, #Liberia eight weeks ago, from the WHO country office in Monrovia, people living in the community were afraid, civil unrest was simmering, and an ambulance and health workers were being targeted.
Dr Clement traveled the 12 hours over dirt roads to the area nearest the Guinea border. Once there, he walked into the hostile communities and went straight to the chiefs.
Dr Clement said the key to working with a hostile community is listening first. So he patiently listened to the community to understand their fears, then he started to explain about the virus and how people become sick. «Ebola, c’est notre ennemi. Si nous ne chassons pas le virus, il nous tuera. Vous devez connaître cette maladie pour la combattre, mobiliser les gens. Apprenons à connaître Ebola. » - Dr Peter Clement de l’ #OMS au Liberia.
Lorsque le Dr Clément est arrivé dans le comté de Lofa, au Liberia il y a 8 semaines, en provenance du bureau de l'OMS à Monrovia, les gens ont eu peur. Une certaine agitation couvait, une ambulance et des personnels de santé avaient été pris pour cible.
Le Dr Clement a voyagé pendant 12 heures sur des pistes pour rejoindre la région limitrophe de la Guinée. Dès son arrivée, il est allé dans des communautés hostiles et a rencontré leurs chefs.
Il estime que, pour travailler avec ces communautés, il faut d’abord être à leur écoute. C’est ce qu’il a fait afin de comprendre leurs craintes, avant de pouvoir expliquer les dangers du virus et comment les gens deviennent malades.
