Emergency aid and prevention of infection in Guinea hit by the Ebola virus

The Communities of Sant'Egidio in Guinea are committed to preventing the spread of the epidemic especially among the poorest

printable version

About a month ago Guinea was hit by a terrible epidemic of Ebola. The virus, identified as belonging to the most aggressive strain, has spread from the area of the forest, mainly in the cities of Gueckedou, Macenta and Kissidougou. But even in the capital, Conakry, there are several cases.

More than 150 people were contaminated and unfortunately there are already more than 90 deaths in this country already so marked by poverty and many difficulties.

The Communities of Sant'Egidio present in the cities most affected by the epidemic, reported in a timely manner the lack of means of prophylaxis to prevent the spread of the virus.

Per questo motivo, la settimana scorsa è stato inviato urgentemente nelle zone colpite un primo camion con circa 2.000 litri di varechina e di soluzione di cloro, indispensabile per l’igiene personale e quella delle case, ma introvabile nelle zone forestali del Paese.

For this reason, last week they sent urgently to the affected areas one first truck with about 2,000 litres of bleach and chlorine solution, which is essential for personal hygiene and that of the houses, but it is found nowhere in the forest areas of the country.

The distribution was made in Gueckedou, starting with the most vulnerable people: beggars living on the streets, prisoners, the poor families of the children of the school of peace.

The whole community in Guinea has taken action to prevent a further deterioration of the health situation. These days, a guide with certain rules of hygiene and behaviour has been distributed to help to avoid contagion in the poorest neighborhoods and villages.
