GUINEA RESIDENTS ‘REFUSE’ EBOLA TREATMENTS

Local resident Tairu Diallo said on Friday that people living in his neighborhood refused to seek medical help and instead stayed at home, trying to alleviate their symptoms with drugs bought at a pharmacy.

Diallo said people think doctors at hospitals inject patients with a deadly poison.

“If we have a stomach ache we don’t go to hospital because doctors there will inject you and you will die,” he said.

Many Guineans say local and foreign healthcare workers are part of a conspiracy which either deliberately introduced the outbreak, or invented it as a means of luring Africans to clinics to harvest their blood and organs.
