• Doubting, Denying Till Death

    first_imgHow Doubting The Deadly Ebola Virus Disease Is Wiping Almost A Whole Family; But Does Gov’t Care More About The Dead Than The Living? For the second round in less than two months, a set of two persons have died from a single family allegedly, some say, convincingly, from the killer Ebola virus disease (EVD) in the Gardnersville area of Monrovia. A month ago, a man affectionately identified as KK, lost his sister and then mother to the virus. The sister worked at the Swaray clinic in Monrovia and was among four nurses that contracted and died from the virus at that clinic.Over the weekend, KK lost his pregnant wife and a teenage daughter; and the man himself is currently sick. Though there was no medical examination before the deaths of the wife and daughter, reports say they were ones taking care of the first set of two persons that died from the virus. The mother got affected when she cared for the corpse of her nurse-daughter.Four down already, more members, even distant relatives of this New Georgia community family and people of the larger Mandingo and Muslim communities are feared to be at higher risk of contracting the virus because KK, an alleged carrier, is roaming unrestrained.After several failed attempts to call in the Ebola Taskforce set up by the Liberian government, officers of the Liberia National Police and health workers arrived at the New Georgia Mosque to seize the suspected Ebola-corpses that were being washed and prayed over. Instead of two, only the wife’s corpse was discovered and taken away by the police and health workers – thanks to family members whom confirmed reports say buried the daughter overnight at an undisclosed location.Denial from Start to EndAlthough KK admits he is sick, he denies carrying Ebola – same denial people say he had held during the times he lost his families. “I am sick. I went to the hospital and they told me I have typhoid; and I am taking typhoid treatment at a clinic in Jamaica Road,” KK told a friend via mobile phone. Though he did not indicate the particular clinic he is taking treatment, staffers at the main clinic on the Jamaica Road denied treating KK for whatever sickness.Alieu Konneh is the Administrator at the Al-Hilal Medical Center, commonly known as the Muslim Clinic.According to him, at no time did his clinic treat KK or any of his family members. However, he admitted talking to a pharmacist in the same vicinity, just around the Boatswain High School, who treated the KK’s deceased-wife with bare hands. “No, we never treated anybody from that family. His wife was taking treatment at one pharmacy around here. I spoke with the guy in that pharmacy, he told me ‘that he referred them to a bigger hospital since her condition was not improving. I think they went to Cooper’s Clinic,” Mr. Konneh said in an interview.For KK, there is no reason to report himself. “What are the people saying? I don’t have Ebola. I have typhoid and I am taking treatment. I am not going anywhere,” he told another friend who spoke with him on phone loudspeaker- encouraging him to report to health workers.Abdullai Mohammed Keita was around when health workers came over for the corpses. “Our problem is not with those that have died already. Our problem is with the husband who is sick, and we understand from the same Ebola virus disease that killed his family. He is still passing among us – infecting all of us. We are at huge risk here, especially considering the kind of community we have. What more does this man want to know about Ebola and the facts surrounding recent deaths in his family before he stops doubting and denying this killer-disease? He is infecting and killing us. Four of your members of the same family can’t just die from malaria, you are sick and other people around you are sick. This is no malaria. Why not report yourself. This is wickedness,” he told me.Higher Risk: Long Chain of Person-to-Person ContactsAt the moment, there is indication that more people might be risk of carrying the virus. Apart from KK’s mother who contracted the virus from her daughter during caretaking, KK’s teenage daughter is said to have contracted the virus while staying with her deceased grandmother. Both KK and his deceased wife are said to have contracted the virus during the same person-to-person contacts – although there is no authentic information on the sequence of contraction and infection.As confirmed information indicates, KK’s daughter was buried without the knowing of many people and circumstances surrounding the burial remain sketchy. However, there is no skepticism about people getting involved with the process. This means people involved with the burial might be possible Ebola-carriers. Also, his wife was taken at the New Georgia mosques where scores of Muslims prayed over the body for burial. Although the corpse was not washed by the group, it was transported from one point to another – whether from a hospital or a home before reaching the mosque. Since the body was lifted and carried by people, there is no doubt people might have contacted each other.One person put it squarely: “It was not machined that brought the body here. They were people and that means those who touched this body are infected. Moreover, KK himself was among us here today. He is sick yet he moves among us like there is nothing wrong with him.”On social media, comments over reports that an Ebola-suspected corpse was in the open at the New Georgia mosque were many but all pointed toward one direction: “Aren’t people aware of the Ebola circumstances these days?”One poster, Benedictus Doctu Yahn, said: “People will never learn. ‘Don’t wash dead bodies.’ They will never learn. We have a long way with a virus that can be stopped from spreading provided people follow the instructions.”Kla Edward Toomey: “Are they not hearing all the awareness?”Yonnah Saba Kra: “How wicked people are. They’re spreading the virus to random people. Oh! My God”Charlotte Wonasue is a neighbor to them. “This (report) is so true because they are my neighbors and we never knew until his sister and mother died and KK is seriously sick.”She continued: “He is lying because he was the one who held his mother on his back and put her in his car; and he is very sick. I saw him today but when he learned that the community people were calling the Ebola team – that was when he left. The deaths occurred in the New Georgia Oldfield behind Jonathan Paylaylay’s house – the first truck garage. Ask for Mr. Ansu Kromah, you will find the place because they had the feast for KK’s mother in the same area,” she added.“He is a friend. He needs to come out to go through the due processes to make sure that he is Ebola free or to be treated for his own safety,” Mohammed Segbemadee Konneh, a Liberian resident in Philadelphia said on Facebook.More Concern for the Dead, Not the Living-CarriersWhile the government insists it is exerting every effort and available resource to contain the spread of the virus, many people think its strategies only put more people at eminent risk.“See what the government is doing. They collect the dead bodies and never care to arrest or even ask for people the deceased might have contacted. This man lost his sister and mother; now his wife and kid are dead. Are there no conscious people to ask for people these dead people might have contacted while they were alive and sick? No! You collect dead bodies and never quarantine their houses, or people they have contacted. These people in turn will go about contacting and infecting other people. This way, there is no way to contain the spread of the virus. Let’s not pretend,” Marie Klay who stood watching the police and health workers take away KK’s wife’s corpse, said in frustration.During similar incidents at the St. Tolbert Estate Junction on Monday where two persons died, people became uneasy because health workers only took away the dead bodies when in fact they were told that other people in the same house were sick and carrying symptoms of Ebola. “They just took the dead bodies, threw them in the car and then pulled off. Nothing more! So, the government is deliberately allowing more people to carry the virus to infect other people. See what Nigeria is doing just because of one Ebola death,” Marcus Sheriff of Stephen Tolbert noted.In Nigeria, 177 primary and secondary contacts have been placed under surveillance or isolation just from one Ebola death. Nigeria’s Heath Minister, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu Monday confirmed the figures. “It has been 22 days since EVD first landed in Nigeria. As at today, 177 primary and secondary contacts of the index case have been placed under surveillance or isolation. 9 developed EVD, bringing the total number of cases in Nigeria to 10. Of these 10, 2 have died (the Liberian American and the Nigerian nurse) while 8 are alive and currently on treatment,” Prof. Chukwu is quoted by the Vanguard.In Liberia, where are more than 190 confirmed Ebola deaths, report of isolating contacts is rare. A prominent question asked by emergency responders is “is the person dead?” This, citizens believe puts more concern on the dead than the living. “If you just talk of sick people and not dead body, no one cares for your call,” a relative of dying lady said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Cookshop.biz Debuts Liberia’s First Truly Local Online Payments

    first_imgCookshop.biz, Liberia’s online destination for food, has begun accepting online payments, marking the first time online payments will be processed by a local merchant bank in Liberia. This important milestone means that the company’s customers can order food online using both domestic and international credit and debit cards, and Cookshop will receive the payments directly into their local bank account. This sets the stage for local e-commerce in Liberia, and is an important step in the progress of the nation’s ICT sector. The Cookshop team was able to achieve this using United Bank for Africa (UBA) U-Collect payment gateway. Payment gateways transmit data over the Internet to card associations and credit card processing companies, connecting merchants, cardholders, and financial institutions, and offering the assurance of secure transactions and timely payments. Prior to this, if a Liberian business wished to receive online payments, that business would need to establish a foreign account connected to a payment gateway, and later transfer collected funds into a Liberian bank account at a cost. However, international monetary transfers are incredibly expensive, and fall under heavy scrutiny due to anti-money laundering laws, high risk assessments, lack of banking relationships, economic sanctions, and international and domestic financial laws and regulations. With the U-Collect a payment gateway for VISA and MasterCard, Cookshop.biz has moved past this hurdle for local businesses to join the global e-commerce community. Several factors led to the online food delivery startup’s decision to use U-Collect. According to Cookshop.biz co-founder Charles Dorme Cooper, “It was important for us to choose a solution that will allow us to grow with the use of point of sale, online credit card processing, and mobile credit card processing. Furthermore, UBA’s willingness to work with us directly through the entire process was instrumental to establishing online payments in Liberia. We look forward to more collaboration in the near future.” For co-founder Mlen-Too Wesley, the key factors were the network availability and proper security infrastructure in accordance with international standards. “U-Collect is PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant and keeps customer information safe using TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security / Secure Sockets Layer) for encryption. U-Collect also uses both three-digit CVV2 (Card Verification Value) and 3-D Secure, such as Verified by VISA and MasterCard SecureCode, to authenticate transactions. We tested the U-Collect payment gateway for months with a small group of our customers and find it to have over 99.99% uptime and to be truly safe and secure.” Cookshop.biz has taken on the challenge to lead the growth of e-commerce in Liberia. The e-commerce market of West Africa is growing at a rapid pace, and the data/Internet market in Liberia has grown exponentially since 2013, due to the increase in smartphone adoption rate and speed of Internet connection bandwidth. In seven Sub-Saharan countries, e-commerce makes up between 1%-3% of GDP, and is predicted to make up 10% of total retail sales in key markets by 2025 according to a report by McKinsey & Company. Continued growth of e-commerce will depend on a variety of factors including government tax policies and cross-border customs regulations, availability of adequate and secure payment solutions, shipping and handling standards and Internet access costs. The founders of Cookshop.biz are aware of the challenges ahead, and see their collaboration with UBA as one major step towards developing a truly local tech hub in Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • RESH Graduates 290 Volunteers

    first_imgRenewed Energy Serving Humanity (RESH) has graduated 290 psychosocial counselors with a mission to go forth and exercise what they have learned to benefit Liberia. In fulfillment of this mission, the graduates have been tasked to help rescue the thousands of Liberians who are struggling with traumatic conditions, many of whom are young people—with the ever growing population of zogoes (young people who are practically living on the streets as a result of their addiction to drugs) in major cities and their suburbs in the country.Although the cause (s) of these young people’s situations cannot generally be attributed to the civil unrest that characterized the country in the past; it could also, because of the high surge in the usage of narcotic substances in country. However, this could be referred to as postwar effects or an outshoot of the crisis. These groups of people are in dire need of help to regain their minds and the graduates have been charged with this responsibility.The graduation ceremony took place over the weekend in Paynesville after an eight-week intensive psychosocial training program. The volunteers, who also include some Ebola survivors, will now be deployed in various communities to serve as RESH ambassadors, with the responsibilities of identifying basic psychosocial support-related issues, providing basic services proportional to their training, and making the requisite referrals where needed.It is no secret that the decade long civil crisis in the country, coupled with the recent outbreak of the Ebola virus disease that took thousands of lives in the country, has left a sizable number of Liberians traumatized; and according to many, government has been doing very little to rescue these people.It was, therefore, in this regard that RESH, according to its founder and Executive Director, Ernest Garnark Smith, thought it wise to help, but at a critical time, during the height of the EVD in Monrovia. This globally threat also presented the best opportunity for the organization to start such a unique process. Therefore, Smith said, RESH started its psychosocial counseling with those that were diagnosed with the EVD and were taken to the ELWA Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in Paynesville, where Smith braved the storm providing counseling to inmates in order to give them hope to survive. Fortunately, many of his patients did survive, Smith said. He was providing an overview of RESH’s program at the graduation ceremony.Smith, a university lecturer and a psychosocial counselor, has always stressed the need for government and its partners to provide more support to mental health programs. He maintained that the decade-long Liberian war with its many accompanying negative scenarios left many Liberians traumatized, but more worrisome is that no help seems to be coming anytime soon for this group of people.“We see a lot of people in the streets who appear confused. They need help, too. It is incumbent upon our government to intervene in their situations by coming up with supporting programs that work in that direction,” Smith added. “There is a better way to serve humanity and helping someone who is suffering psychologically is one of the most important ways because these conditions are very difficult to detect at times.” Serving as guest speaker was former minister of Foreign Affairs, Augustine Ngafuan. He stressed that there is an urgent need for the youth of the country to be rescued from the grip of drug addiction, and it is incumbent upon the graduates to do so because they now possess the expertise. “You now need to go forth and liberate your brothers and sisters because they have been living in these conditions for too long now. Please use the skills you have gained to be a help to your country,” he pleaded. The issue of drug abuse, he said, is now a national crisis that needs to be tackled heads on. “We must do something about it as a country or else we will be losing an entire generation to these harmful substances,” he said, while also wondering how these substances even entered the country.Liberians continue to complain that government is doing nothing to take mentally-ill people off the streets, something that should be embarrassing for the country. “We see many mentally-challenged people in the streets, but some of them are not mentally-ill. They just have some minor problems,” Smith added, criticizing that the social protection arm of the government is doing little to tackle the problem.He continues to call for those with mental conditions to be taken off the streets. “We have a lot of work to do and we must begin now. Government and partners need to put money in this direction,” he said. The graduation ceremony was graced by relatives and friends of the volunteers. Also in attendance were members of RESH Board and staff. The training was held under the theme, ‘Preparing to Serve Mama Liberia and Humanity,’ and the graduates were taught 10 psychosocial-support-related courses over eight weeks.Courses the graduates covered included Introduction to Psychosocial Counseling; Substance Abuse; Mental Health Issues; Volunteerism and Working with Children Faced with Traumatic Issues. Other courses were Introduction to Guidance Counseling; Community Sensitization and Mobilization; Introduction to Social Works and Temperament Analysis.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Parents protest plan for Castaic high schoolers

    first_imgThe plan would also allow open enrollment, meaning parents could enroll their kids in any of the district’s high schools if they wanted. Castaic parents were still upset their kids did not have a permanent high school. “We need a school now,” said John Zaring, founder of Castaic United to Build a School, a community group that has collected more than 500 signatures to build a school. Residents began to organize last month after the Hart district revealed enrollment projections that showed West Ranch High School, the closest now to Castaic, would exceed capacity by nearly 1,000 students by 2010. To accommodate the growth, the district staff recommended placing portables at West Ranch at a cost of about $4million. But the school board, facing financial struggles, hesitated to spend the money and came up with suggestions including sending Castaic students to Golden Valley High School, about 17miles away. VALENCIA – Castaic parents packed into a school board meeting Wednesday night to protest a plan to send their children to neighboring communities to attend high school. The Hart Union High School District must come up with a solution to house the students because the long-awaited Castaic High School is years behind schedule. Parents got some relief when the district announced a new recommendation that would keep Castaic students at the same high school. Rob Gapper, the district’s chief operating officer, recommended moving incoming Castaic ninth-graders to Valencia High School for two years. They would then spend their final two years at West Ranch High School. For many Castaic parents, this was the final blow in an ongoing battle stemming from delays in building Castaic High, which isn’t expected to open before 2010. Penny Young, a Castaic resident for 12 years, could not attend Wednesday’s meeting but sent out e-mails to Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich and the Hart board members. The mother of six moved in 1995 to the Castaic area, drawn by the hope that her children would have a high school nearby. “It is a shame that none of my six children will have attended Castaic High School,” Young said in a phone interview earlier in the week. connie.llanos@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • USC not discouraged despite loss

    first_img“We can be happy because we reached a lot of our goals from early in the year that probably no one really believed but us,” said Lodrick Stewart, who led USC with 22 points. “The coaching staff taught us a lot and brought us beyond what we thought we could do this year.” USC (21-10, 11-7) will play sixth-seeded Stanford in the first round of the Pac-10 Tournament on Thursday at 6:20 p.m. The teams split their two games in the regular season. This game mirrored USC’s season so far, with a lot for the coaching staff to be happy about, but not the desired conclusion. It’s the first time the Trojans lost consecutive games. Stewart forced overtime with a 3-pointer from in front of the USC bench with five seconds left in regulation. Stewart had a chance to win the game in the first overtime when he was hit on the elbow by Kyle Weaver on a 3-point attempt with 2.1 seconds to go and the Trojans trailing by two points. A regular season full of positives ended with a disappointing, 88-86 double-overtime loss to No. 13 Washington State at Beasley Coliseum. The Trojans, ranked No. 23, lost the battle for second place in the Pac-10 Conference, but couldn’t be too discouraged with third after entering the season picked to finish sixth by the media. It’s USC’s highest finish since taking second in 2001-02. The Trojans were last in the Pac-10 just two years ago. PULLMAN, Wash. – USC players and coaches shook hands with their opponents at mid-court Saturday and walked into the tunnel with a hint of smiles among their faces. Call it a glass-half-full point of view. center_img After making the first free throw, he missed the second. The Cougars (24-6, 13-5) called a timeout, but Stewart came out and hit the final free throw to force another extra period. “I just wish I could have made one more free throw,” Stewart said. In double overtime, USC trailed by three with 45 seconds remaining. Stewart attempted a 3-pointer to tie the game once again but it barely nicked the rim. matthew.kredell@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • Rally protests security guard acts

    first_img“There was resistance by her,” Sgt. Darrel Brown said. “He went to control her.” Brown was one of eight additional deputies who were at the school to monitor the protest. Najee Ali, director of Project Islamic Hope, organized the protest and referred to the four arrested as the Palmdale Four, linking them to the so-called Jena Six beating case in Louisiana, where the arrest of six African-American students sparked a national debate about racism. “Children are being beaten and brutalized. Black students are being victimized,” Ali said. “Today we say, `Enough is enough.”‘ The protesters demanded that all charges against the four be dropped, that the security guard be fired, that the U.S. Justice Department launch an inquiry, and that Majors be reinstated to her job as a special-education instructional assistant in the Palmdale School District. After her arrest, Majors, a single mother with three children, was suspended without pay pending the outcome of her criminal case. The incident reportedly started when Mervin was walking to a trash can to throw away the cake that a friend had brought to school to celebrate her birthday. Someone bumped into her and the cake fell, prompting the guard to tell her to pick it up, Majors said. Eventually, the guard grabbed her by the arm and slammed her onto a table, according to a cell-phone video of the incident. The guard also is accused of tackling Joshua Lockett to stop him from videotaping the incident, Ali said. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Both Mervin and Kenngela Lockett attended the protest with their arms in slings. Joshua Lockett, who was on probation for robbery, remained in juvenile custody on suspicion of violating his probation, sheriff’s deputies said. “We come to get an education, not to be hurt by security guards,” said Kenngela, who said she tried to pull guards off her brother and was hurt while being handcuffed. One guard, whose name has not been publicly released, has been placed on leave with pay pending an investigation by the Antelope Valley Union High School District. Attempts to reach the guard were not successful. Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies said the guard told them he felt threatened by Mervin. PALMDALE – Carrying signs and chanting, about 60 people protested in front of Knight High School on Friday over the arrests of three students and a parent after a scuffle with school security officers over a spilled birthday cake. One security guard twisted the arm of 16-year-old Pleajhai Mervin behind her back and slammed her against a lunch table, fracturing her wrist, parents said. “I want justice,” said Mervin’s mother, Latrisha Majors, who also was arrested. “I want justice for my daughter. I want the guards to be held accountable for their actions.” Majors and her daughter were arrested in the Sept. 18 lunchtime incident, along with Joshua Lockett, 14, who videotaped the fight, and his sister, Kenngela Lockett, 16, who also suffered a fractured wrist. last_img
