Aug. 21, 2014 — Two Americans infected with Ebola as they cared for patients in West Africa have fully recovered and have been discharged from the Atlanta hospital where they were treated, officials said.

“After a rigorous course of treatment and thorough testing we have determined, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and state health departments, that Dr. [Kent] Brantly has recovered from the Ebola virus infection and he can return to his family, his community, and his life without public health concerns,” said Bruce Ribner, MD, the infectious disease specialist at Emory University Hospital who supervised his care.”

How are we Africans supposed to feel? Two Americans survived the virus but an African was the first to die in this country flowing with milk and honey. Why did the African have to die? Isn’t he a human being just like the two Americans who survived this deadly virus? Why didn’t he receive the same treatment like the two Americans who survived?

Our People: Lies and Corruption dey for town.
It’s time we learn to care for each other because at the end of the day; they don’t really care about us.
