The courageous people of this disease ravaged nation are rightfully rejoicing, and the world should rejoice with them as well. The hideous ravages of the terrible near endless march of death which was brought by Ebola during the past two years are gradually fading, even as the people of Sierra Leone recall the depth of their suffering during the worst of it’s ascent. Below are video clips which recall the worst moments of the extended Ebola outbreak, which killed more than 28,000 people in Sierra Leone and other African nations, along with the long awaited moments of pure joy to know that the heart of the nation can finally begin to recover from one of the most serious outbreaks of deadly Ebola virus in world history. Sound the drums and sing the songs of victory over death. You are the lucky ones, whom God has smiled on. You have lived to sing the living songs of joy. Ebola is finally fading in Sierra Leone, Africa.
About the Ebola Outbreak: “Across West Africa, the death toll from Ebola rose to over 11,000 (CDC), which was heavily concentrated in three countries: Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia. As of September 22, 2015, a total of 28,319 cases have been reported with 15,235 being laboratory confirmed. A quick statistical analysis will reveal that a large percentage of those who contracted Ebola survived (around thirty percent). A percentage poorly relates the psychological impact of the epidemic on affected populations and makes it difficult for observers to shift from objectively interpreting data to
asympathetically understanding the strife of the population. The scope of the virus did, however, enter the attention of the Western hemisphere with an inescapable pandemonium of panicked rumors and apocalyptic premonitions. Two US doctors were, in fact, confirmed to have contracted the virus and carried it into the country (CDC). There was a swift reaction to treat and contain the virus, which prevented its spread.”
