We are so sorry, Mrs. Decontee Sawyer seeks Adadevoh family’s forgiveness

The widow of the Liberian who brought the Ebola disease to Nigeria, Patrick Sawyer, Mrs. Decontee Sawyer, has pleaded for forgiveness from the family of the female doctor, Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, who died from the disease on Tuesday.

Adadevoh was one of the first people that had contact with the late Sawyer.
Mrs. Sawyer said she shared in the pain of the Adadevoh family in an email interview with The Leadership.
She added that it was painful that her husband had caused so much damage in his country, Liberia, and Nigeria with the Ebola virus.
Sawyer said, “I share in the pains that the family members of the Nigerian doctor are going through. It is just a pity that Patrick had to cause this damage both in Liberia and Nigeria.” Sawyer, a resident of Minnesota, USA, apologised for the seeming heartlessness of her open letter, asking Nigerians to be mindful of her daughters, and not curse the Sawyer name, even if they curse Patrick Sawyer.
She said, “I want to reach out to them and express…

At the recommendation of the U.S. Embassy in Liberia, the State Department today ordered the departure from Monrovia of all eligible family members (EFMs) not employed by post in the coming days. The Embassy recommended this step out of an abundance of caution, following the determination by the Department’s Medical Office that there is a lack of options for routine health care services at major medical facilities due to the Ebola outbreak. We are reconfiguring the Embassy staff to be more responsive to the current situation. Our entire effort is currently focused on assisting U.S. citizens in the country, the Government of Liberia, international health organizations, local non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the …

Liberia Struggles to Contain Spread of Ebola, U.S. State Dept. Issues Travel Warning

In a soggy field in Johnsonville, a township just outside the Liberian capital, Monrovia, Joseph Bayogar holds his hand to his chin and shakes his head as he walks through what is now a messy burial site. “We did not have Ebola in our area,...” the local resident says. “Now the government has put our lives in danger by doing this.”

He was visiting the site on Aug. 4, just two days after health workers brought some 37 bodies — victims of the deadly Ebola outbreak that’s now killed almost 1,000 in West Africa — to the field on orders from the Ministry of Health. The Assistant Minister of Health, Tolbert Nyenswah, tells TIME that the government had purchased the land from the township administration in order to use the area as a burial site.

But as the health workers buried the bodies, local residents say they chased them away, fearful of the spread of the highly contagious disease. The health workers abandoned the rest of the corpses, dumping them in shallow holes in a swampy area, say …
