Ebola, No Vaccine and it keeps moving


 I will like to show you this letter from Unicef addressed to the Publisher.  It gives you point blank what is going on in West Africa.

Dear Adam,
Time is running out to contain the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.i
The growth of the epidemic has outpaced the response. Experts say if this doesn't change, things will get much worse — and more children will suffer and die.
You can help by raising the alarm. Take a minute to read and share the facts below with your friends and family. Help UNICEF generate pressure for an expanded global response to battle the disease.
  1. The latest outbreak is the deadliest to date.
    Ebola has now claimed more than 1,900 lives in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria, making it the deadliest outbreak in history.ii In just one week in August, nearly 300 new cases were reported in Liberia — the largest number of cases reported in a single week since this outbreak began.iii The epidemic's spread is accelerating, with cases reported just last month in yet another country — Senegal. Read and share the story of a UNICEF-supported hospital on the frontlines of the fight against Ebola. »

  2. Girls learning about Ebola

  3. No proven vaccine or easy cure exists for Ebola.
    A handful of experimental Ebola vaccines have undergone trials to determine if they are effective treatments for humans. But finding a proven cure for the deadly disease and delivering it to affected communities is months, if not years, away. Until this time arrives, UNICEF is working to contain the epidemic by raising awareness and distributing essential supplies to health workers and communities. Learn how some Ebola victims are beating the odds and the disease with help from UNICEF and then share. »

  4. Most of the people in affected areas of West Africa had never heard of Ebola before the recent outbreak.
    Rumors and denial are fueling Ebola's spread, putting even more lives at risk. Some people still deny that the disease is real. Others believe that it doesn't have to be treated. View and share photos of UNICEF's efforts to dispel myths about Ebola. »

Thank you for all that you do.
Fondly,

P.S. — UNICEF is taking steps across West Africa to help contain the outbreak, but we desperately need you to fuel our response. Donate today and help UNICEF save children and their families from Ebola.
