The Resurgence of Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) and Its Impact on the People of Sierra Leone.

The Resurgence of Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) and Its Impact on the People of Sierra Leone.

By Comrade Kombor


Sierra Leone—In mid-2014 through the end of 2016 there had been a transmittable and deadly disease called Ebola in Sierra Leone and its surrounding neighborhood countries, Liberia and Guinea.

This emergent Ebola virus was new to Sierra Leone then, and met our medical infrastructures, which were completely insufficient in handling an outbreak such as this, with death and suffering.

Consequently, a lot of medical personnel, as well as other affected Sierra Leoneans, lost their lives, properties, as well as their sources of livelihood. This is commonplace for Colonized people worldwide as sellout governments continue to put the needs of colonizer governments first, instead of those of their people. 

As a direct result, our cultural ambiance, economic growth, and social activities were really constrained, further damaging our country’s ability to cater to the needs of our poor and working-class.

However, with consistent government efforts to coordinate, collaborate and build strong networks with other international partners like Cuba, greater medical expertise and experience was shared and infrastructures improved that enabled Sierra Leoneans to stem out the Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) after the loss of many meaningful lives.

Despite that experience, however, came COVID-19, which has also taken a devastating toll. While still battling with COVID-19, it is sad to say that there is now a resurgence of the Ebola virus in the southern part of the country to the north and western areas, as confirmed by medical reports.

This situation has become worrisome not only due to the government’s refusal to handle these outbreaks, but to the reaction of entire Sierra Leonean populace who knew the diabolical effects of the Ebola Viral Disease (EVD).

With that said, it behooves every Sierra Leonean, and other stakeholders in the well being of Colonized people to remember the lessons taught by Cuba, and to be in absolute compliance with their health regulations as prescribed to the state, its medical team, and the WHO to ensure whatever emerging disease, including the (EVD) strain, is handled promptly and efficiently.

Take, for example, a case study of the suffering community in Yeliboya Island and its situation; some communities along the coastal area require our urgent response, support, and proper medical knowledge to continually raise the awareness of the people. In doing so, we can save many lives that are at the brink of falling into abject poverty, leading to further constraints on the economy, education, and further deaths, and much more suffering for our Colonized siblings here in Sierra Leone.
