The deadly Ebola outbreak that hit Libia made all citizens afraid. People no longer shake hands and chlorine is used to disinfect hands. Now we also have the bodies of the ebola victims cremated.
The Liberian health authorities officially ordered all victims to be cremated as there is no sign that the outbreak is slowing down. According to health officials, 17 bodies of people that were infected were just abandoned on the streets of Monrovia in the past days.
Lewis Brown, Information Minister, announced:
“This situation has gotten worse. We need our concerted effort, this country needs everybody right now.”
We now have the worst possible Ebola outbreak in the entire history. 3 African capital cities are affected and the fatality rate is now at around 60%.
The worst situation is noticed in Liberia, as 156 people died, according to the Doctors Without Borders organization.
The new mandate for the cremation of the victims appears as the community is now opposed to burials. Health authorities were faced with resistance when trying to bury the bodies of 22 people in Johnsonville.
