Panic As Two Ebola Victims Resurrect During Burial

Panic has taken over a community in Liberia when two Ebola victims suddenly rose back to death.
The villagers who believed two female victims of the killer disease have been resurrected and are now walking among the living were shocked at the incident when it happened. Mirror reports that the victims, who are both females in their 40s and 60s, died of the deadly virus in separate communities in Nimba County, Liberia.
But the pair were said to have risen from their deaths and are now walking among the living, causing panic and fear among locals. The two victims late Dorris Quoi of Hope Village Community and Ma Kebeh, in her late 60s, were about to be taken for burial when they resurrected from the dead, according to the New Dawn Nimba County, a local newspaper.
Ma Kebeh was reported to be indoors for two nights without food and medication before her alleged death. However, it would be worthy to note that Nimba County has recently reported unusual news of Ebola cases, including one about a native doctor from the county, who claimed that he could cure infected victims, dying of the virus himself last week.
The local tabloid however made it known that since the Ebola outbreak in Nimba County, this is the first incident of dead victims resurrecting. The Ebola outbreak has already killed around 2,800 people in five West African countries this year while an estimated 5,800 people have been infected with the virus, which has no known cure.
America’s respected Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has predicted there could be up to 1.4million cases of deadly Ebola by the end of January. The CDC, which successfully treated two US doctors infected with the disease, released the worrying report based on assumptions that cases have been dramatically under reported.
The Centre’s scientists believe there may be as many as 21,000 reported and unreported cases in just Liberia and Sierra Leone alone by the end of this month.
The World Health Organisation has already warned the number of people infected with the Ebola could reach 20,000 by the beginning of November if steps to contain the outbreak are not accelerated.
It would be recalled that just recently, after a seemingly long battle with Ebola in Nigeria, the Minister of Health in Nigeria, Onyebuchi Chukwu revealed that Nigeria is completely free of active Ebola cases, adding that all contacts of the deadly disease have been released from surveillance.
