Patrick Sawyer, a 40-year-old Liberian civil servant, collapsed on arrival in Nigeria's main airport on Sunday, health officials said. His condition rapidly deteriorated before he died, said Abdulsalami Nasidi, project director at the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, who attributed his death to ebola.

日曜日に、リベリアの40歳の公務員Patrick Sawyerがナイジェリアの主力空港に到着して倒れたと、保健省当局者が述べた。彼は急速に病状が悪化して死亡したと、ナイジェリアの疾病コントロールセンタのプロジェクト長であるAbdulsalami Nasidiは述べて、その死亡がエボラによるものだとした。

Nigeria's health minister, Onyebuchi Chukwu, on Friday said the "patient was subjected to thorough medical tests ... which confirmed the virus of Ebola," as the cause of death.

"The deaths have been increasing because of traditional burial rites in that region," said Tolbert Nyenswah, Liberia's deputy chief medical officer. The Kissi ethnicity, found in all three countries, traditionally keep their dead at home for several days, and mourners touch the deceased's head frequently before burial.

A doctor in Sierra Leone said patients' families often tried to break them out of treatment centres. "Some of them are in denial and [say] it is something they can treat at home, and faith healers are one of the problems for us. When you have patients disappearing like that, you don't know where the virus will appear next."

Ebola was initially viewed as a government conspiracy to depopulate Sierra Leone's Kailahun district, and fierce resistance to the arrival of health workers culminated in the stoning of a Medecins Sans Frontieres vehicle.

エボラは最初は、シェラレオネのKailahun地方の人口を激減させようという政府の陰謀だと見られていた。そして、医療スタッフの到着に強く抵抗し、Medecins Sans Frontieresの車への投石に及んだ。

シェラレオネでは、さらに危険な陰謀論が広まっているという。Concern WorldwideのSierra Leone責任者によれば...
The tightly held myths we seek to dispel include the belief that the disease is politically motivated or spread by NGOs or the government. Some believe if they are diagnosed with Ebola, they will be given an injection in a medical clinic to hasten their death. 

This misinformation means that people who are diagnosed sometimes flee, rejecting the treatment that might save their lives, and simultaneously spreading the disease into untouched towns and villages.

In Liberia, many believe the outbreak is a hoax from government officials seeking to distract from scandals or corruption.

"The government of Liberia has come up with a new strategy to divert the Liberian people's mind," student Alfred Randall said. " The virus is very terrible, but Ebola is not in Liberia."

リベリアでは、多くの人々が「エボラの感染拡大は、スキャンダルや汚職から国民の目を逸らそうとする政府の虚偽宣伝だ」と信じている。学生Alfred Randallは「リベリア政府は国民の関心を逸らす新たな戦略をとっている。エボラウィルスは非常に恐ろしいが、リベリアには存在しない」と言う。

Recently, there have been public perceptions that the ministry was extracting parts of people dying of the deadly Ebola disease in the country and selling them abroad.

It is reported that the body parts of these dead people, such as kidneys, hearts and livers, among others, are being allegedly extracted by the ministry for business purposes.

But reacting to the claims Thursday at a press conference in Monrovia, Assistant Health Minister for Preventive Services, Tolbert Nyenswah denied the allegation and described it as 'wicked'.


この主張に対して、7月24日のモンロヴィアでの記者会見で、予防担当保健副大臣Tolbert Nyenswahは主張を否定し、そのような主張が不道徳だと述べた。
