At the very highest level of the Ministry, all senior officials coming in direct or indirect contact with Mr. Sawyer have been placed on the prescribed 21 days observatory surveillance period starting July 20th, the day Mr. Sawyer departed the country for Nigeria.
All concerned senior officials have been requested to telecommute up until when certified by the Ministry of Health to return to active duty.

First, visit the promed site:
WHO refuses to place any travel restrictions on any of the hot spots.
England is taking NO precautions.
If you read all of the info at Promed, you will see that the family of one of the contacts said he has left for London. They are searching the manifests. Good Luck with that.
Those that were exposed, fled and are hiding. It is only a matter of time. A few months ago I thought it might burn out. I was even keeping a spread sheet and it looked like about 5 new cases a day in Guinea. Then it spread, but no problems, just to small areas. Now it is in city of millions. The next couple of weeks will tell the tale.
Does anyone know the status of Mother Abigale? I haven’t seen any post from her in a couple of years. I would love to get her take on this. I have seen her Pinged, but no replies.
The family of the doctor form north Texas that contracted Ebola while volunteering in Africa had returned to the US just before the doctor presented with symptoms. Hope somebody is checking on the family.
“The family of the doctor form north Texas that contracted Ebola while volunteering in Africa had returned to the US just before the doctor presented with symptoms.”
Tell me you’re joking, please.
We could all die because one family is stupid enough to visit an area during an outbreak of Ebola?
I’m on Promed’s mailing list. Scary updates now.
How does one get on that mailing list?
I see there are suspected cases in Ivory Coast and Ghana now as well.

“status of Mother Abigale?”
Haven’t heard. I just ping to these posts once in awhile, in case she is still monitoring.
