Ellen Sees Signs of Ebola Reduction

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf recently said that the deadly Ebola disease is showing signs of stabilization in the country, especially Monrovia.According to President Sirleaf, residents of the capital city, Monrovia, are beginning to see steadiness, in the city that received some of the worst hits since the outbreak of Ebola in 1976.Madam Sirleaf further stated that patients going to Ebola treatment units (ETUs) have dropped.She added that the nation was on the road to solving the Ebola problem.Hailing international efforts to put a halt on the Ebola outbreak, Sirleaf expressed her optimism that the three disease-stricken countries would finally manage to bring the crisis under control.”The international response is quite large… so now we are very hopeful that while it was late in coming, we now have the capacity to be able to address this in a very significant way,” she pointed out.Her comments came shortly after the World Health Organization (WHO) announced on Wednesday that the Ebola death toll has risen to 3,338, with over half of the fatalities in Liberia.Ebola is a form of hemorrhagic fever whose symptoms are diarrhea, vomiting and bleeding.The virus spreads through direct contact with infected blood, feces, sweat or urine.  It can also be spread through sexual contact or the unprotected handling of contaminated corpses.It remains one of the world’s most virulent diseases that kills between 25 to 90 percent of those who fall sick. There is currently no known cure for Ebola.Meanwhile, the assistant Minister for Preventive Service at the Ministry Of Health, Tolbert Nyenswah, said, there are more empty beds at the various Ebola Treatment Units after several persons were discharged.He explained that the capacity of testing in the country has increased through the efforts of the local and international partners helping in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus.Minister Nyenswah at the same time expressed thanks and appreciation to the health workers for their priceless efforts in saving lives as well as others in support of government efforts.He urged the public to not to stay home if suspected of the deadly Ebola virus but report for quick testing.  He warned the those suspected of infection not to use commercial vehicles, rather, they should use an ambulance.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Operation ends girl’s unchecked laughter

first_img“You could tell by the look that something isn’t right,” said Anderson, who compared her daughter’s behavior to Batman’s arch-nemesis. “It was almost as if she started to grind her teeth and then it was kind of a smile almost like the Joker – I don’t know how else to describe it,” Anderson said. NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. – Doctors probed deep into the center of a 3-year-old girl’s brain to save her from her own laughter. Anastasia Lagalla’s uncontrollable laughter and seizures were part of an extremely rare condition that could have led to mental retardation, but doctors announced Thursday that surgery to remove a tumor causing the problem had been successful. “It’s like I have my little girl back,” said Ana’s mom, Jennifer Anderson of Ridge, N.Y., who beamed as she told reporters Thursday of her daughter’s recovery. “She’s doing amazing.” The laughing seizures began in May 2006, Anderson said, with only a few episodes a day. At first, Anderson and her husband, Peter Lagalla, agreed with the assessment of doctors that the tantrum-like symptoms were merely “terrible twos” behavior, but the frequency of the seizures grew to an alarming rate. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LETTERKENNY ROUTE WILL BE WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY BY 2013

first_imgBus Eireann has confirmed that the bus route between Letterkenny and Dublin will be fully wheelchair accessible by the end of 2013.The news has been welcomed by Letterkenny Town councillor Jimmy Kavanagh who has been campaigning on the issue.“This is great news for wheelchair users.The route between Letterkenny and Dublin is a very busy route, serving the airport and many health services in the capital city, and is widely used by people with physical disabilities,” he said. The absence of a rail service in Donegal means that there is no alternative for many wheelchair users. The route also serves two other counties Tyrone and Monaghan which do not have rail services said Cllr. Kavanagh.“At the moment wheelchair users cannot travel alone without depending on the goodwill of fellow passengers, and although the Bus Eireann drivers are always very helpful, they are limited in what they can do, without a proper wheelchair lift.He added tt is also very difficult for wheelchair users to avail of the break in Monaghan to get refreshments or to use toilet facilities, as this involves the hassle of getting off the bus retrieving their wheelchair from the luggage, and re boarding the bus, with the result that many wheelchair passengers don’t have any break during the four hour journey.“I’m delighted that Bus Eireann have now decided to include this route for urgent upgrading to fully wheelchair accessible. I have been working with Deputy Joe McHugh T.D. on the issue and I would like to thank him for his help, I would also like to thank the Town Council for supporting my recent motion on this issue, and the members of the Donegal Irish Wheelchair Association ho highlighted the importance of making the route accessible.” concluded Cllr. Kavanagh.  LETTERKENNY ROUTE WILL BE WHEELCHAIR FRIENDLY BY 2013 was last modified: July 15th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bus eireannCllr Jimmy Kavanaghlast_img read more
