Comments
There should be an adequate supply of personsl protective equipment to health staff working on suspected Ebola cases in the sub region of west Africa. This will minimise the danger of health care staff who are to take care of the sick, rather contracting the virus and dying whiles their patients are left alone. Some drastic .must be done for the west africa health staff.
