Ebola Suspect Creates Panic

Panic gripped residents of Fort Street in the Soja Tong community, central Freetown, yesterday when a female Ebola suspect (name withheld) and resident of Circular Road in Freetown was spotted vomiting and defecating sporadically at different places she sat along Fort Street.

Some residents of Fort Street tried to contact the response team through the free-toll line – 117 but to no avail as the poor lady continued to secrete body fluids uncontrollably in the frontages of homes much to the dismay of dwellers of the community whose children always play on the ground.

However, as a precautionary measure, some members of the community washed out the body fluids with chlorine water for fear of any contact. Whether or not people in the community or passersby contacted the body fluids, the AYV could not ascertain.

The poor Ebola suspect resisted going to the hospital for fear that he would not return alive home. She cried that she wanted to go back to his house and rest but was not allowed. Later, it was discovered that she was pregnant but whether the signs she exhibited were pregnancy related or Ebola, is left with health experts to prove.

Up to press time yesterday, AYV could not state whether or not the poor lady was picked up by health workers for test and subsequent isolation if found positive.
