While President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma and his Government are making frantic efforts to end the Ebola epidemic disease in the country, wicked thieves on Monday 12th August 2014 at around 3 am under a heavy down pour of rain broke into the Ebola isolation ward at the Bo Government Hospital and carted away property like tents, tarpaulins, buckets, hospital beds, mobile phones and shoes among other things worth millions of Leones.


Speaking to the Medical Superintendent of the Bo Government Hospital Dr. Gerald Young at his administrative office, he expressed frustration and dismay over the unpatriotic tendencies of some so-called citizens in respect to the Ebola disease in the country. He noted there were 6 patients in Isolation Ward where thieves carted away the said property. Because of such actions by residents in the Bo municipality, the Ebola epidemic has spread like wild fire.

 

At this moment he disclosed the safety of the patients is questionable because if thieves can enter into the Ebola isolation ward and cart away property worth millions of Leones, it clearly indicates that due to the nature of the epidemic it is very clear that their security is not guaranteed.


The Medical Superintendent further disclosed that since the outbreak of the Ebola disease in the country, denial was prevalent which has led to a good number of patients leaving the Bo Government hospital without being discharged. He described such patients as Ebola carriers in their respective communities.


Dr. Young further admonished all that "Ebola is real" and that they are making all efforts in order to eradicate the Ebola disease through their expertise.

 

Speaking to the Bo West Police Media Officer, Inspector Abu Bakarr S. Kamara said that they have arrested two suspects who are helping the police with investigations on the disappearance of the Ebola Materials.

 

He said they take extreme caution when interrogating such suspects because if they could go and steal at the Ebola isolation ward it clearly shows that they have already sacrificed their lives for eternity.

Inspector Kamara further informed that all the security forces have come on board strongly in combating the Ebola epidemic in the country, and admonished all that if any one poisons the minds of people about the Ebola Epidemic or steals Ebola materials they will face the full penalty of the law.
