Czech republic joins fight against ebola epidemy

As an Ebola epidemy torments western Africa, the Czech minister of health, Svatopluk Němeček, had stated, that Czech republic will definitely help to sustain it.

Three days ago a non-profit organisation Doctors without borders sent a help requesting letter to four Czech ministers including a prime minister, Bohuslav Sobotka. The letter helped us to make a picture of how horrible the situation is.

“The isolation centres are full and some of the doctors in the first line are infected and the numbers are growing. Others have fled, in fear for life, and left here patients dying from common and easily treatable diseases.”

The ministers have agreed it’s our duty and in the best interest of all of us to help and send medicine supplies and medical equipment. So far, the virus is blamed for around 2 300 deaths, mostly in Sierra Leona, Nigeria, Liberia and Guinea and there were only two Ebola reports in Europe. According to WHO (world’s health organisation) it could take about six more months to get the epidemy under control.
