Ebola - What Is Being Done - A Review

Ebola - a Review

Ebola  is not to be ignored and is in the minds if not on the lips of everyone around the Globe  breathing fear into the hearts of all.

A number of countries already lost a large part of their population but it is time that they all come  together to stem if not solve the problem of a virus that is of epidemic proportion, that is non-discriminatory and no respecter of persons.

While I am reasonably sure that countries are cooperating on this deadly disease, what stands out for me is the part a small country like Cuba is playing in helping to reduce the incidence of the disease by assisting other countries in need of their help.

ALBA - The Bolivian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America  is reported to have said it will look after the “ special needs” of their sister countries in the Caribbean, which will allow them to benefit from the cooperation in preventing and confronting Ebola. ALBA countries have agreed to coordinate their efforts to deal with and prevent the spread of the Epidemic.

These are some of the countries that are members of ALBA (taken from Wikipedia)

In the meantime Cuba is reported to have sent  a total of 347 healthcare workers -91 doctors and nurses to Liberia and Guinea and 256 to Sierra Leone to help combat the disease.

Havana has  also put 461 doctors and nurses in a specialist training to undertake a 6 month mission in affected countries.  So far Cuba has sent the largest number of healthcare professionals to affected countries - as reported in the Jamaica Observer - Friday October 24, 2014

The Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines at a recent summit is reported to have said:

that St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) is an archipelago with airports on five islands, seven seaports, and 12 points of entry for yachts; and that because SVG is an archipelagic state, which historically has a good  maritime sector, it means that there is a lot of traffic between the islands.

Prime Minister Gonsalves is further reported to have told the summit that he believes that Cuba is the only Caribbean nation that is prepared for the possible arrival of the virus.

What then does all this means for those countries - Caribbean or otherwise - who are not prepared? What actions are we taking as a country and as individuals to ensure we at least minimize the threat of this deadly virus?  Are we willing to put our differences aside to fight this threat?

Wait!! Don’t  go just yet. Please take the time after reading this article to check this out  here
