These deaths were not connected to the previously known case. The patient that died was treated by a nurse who also died. It was not until after the deaths that they discovered it was Ebola. Another case that illustrated that it can be deadly if you do not know what you are dealing with.

This brings the total deaths in Mali to three. Not high numbers but it looks as if the authorities are taking no chances they have quarantined  the clinic  with around 30 people trapped inside, including medical staff and patients. There are at least 15 soldiers surrounding the clinic enforcing the quarantine.

It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Some good coverage on the BBC site.

However their numbers do not seem to add up. The deaths were close to 5,000 two and a half weeks ago. They are sated to be close to 5,000 today and yet they are also saying that there are 300 new cases in Sierra Leone in the last three days.

The latest 2 deaths in Mali are a product of a patient that came from Guinea, a known hot spot. It is not a new cluster. The previous death was also an 'import'. I am very disturbed when I read between the lines and see exactly what the governments of the affected countries are doing to combat this epidemic. In Sierra Leon workers are on strike and clinics closing due to non payment of danger pay by the government. I realize these are poor countries but you can be certain that those in power have not cut their wages or lifestyle to contribute. Sick to death of the hype where the media tells us how bad the West is IE the idea an African's life isn't worth as much as a Westerner's life. The so called leaders of these countries don't care either. They and the WHO demanding more and more in the way of $$$, resources and personnel but not taking any real responsibility themselves.
THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS... ONLY OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOLUTIONS
