Book Description :

This comprehensive account of the deadliest Ebola outbreak in history examines its devastating effects on West Africa’s most vulnerable populations: pregnant women and children. Noted experts across disciplines assess health care systems’ responses to the epidemic in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, emphasizing key areas such as pregnancy, prenatal services, childbirth, neonatal care, and survivor health among pregnant and non-pregnant women. The 30 chapters hone in on gender-based social issues exacerbated during the outbreak, from violence against women and girls to barriers to female education. At the same time, chapters pinpoint numerous areas for service delivery and policy improvements for more coordinated, effective, and humane actions during future pandemics. A sampling of the topics: Ebola virus disease: perinatal transmission and epidemiology Comprehensive clinical care for children with Ebola virus disease Maternal and reproductive rights: Ebola and the law in Liberia Ebola-related complications for maternal, newborn, and child health service delivery and utilization in Guinea The Ebola epidemic halted female genital cutting in Sierra Leone—temporarily Maternity care for Ebola at Médecins Sans Frontières centers Stigmatization of pregnant women with and without Ebola Exclusion of women and infants from Ebola treatment trials Role of midwives during the Ebola epidemic Pregnant in the Time of Ebola is a powerful resource for public health specialists, anthropologists, social scientists, physicians, epidemiologists, nurses, midwives, and governmental and non-governmental agency staff studying the effects of the epidemic on women and children as a result of the most widespread Ebola outbreak to date.

Book Description :

In West Africa, a curse has hit its shores and terrain, and is taking the lives of its inhabitants in untold numbers. Its name is Ebola and it has claimed the lives of 11,000 Africans; and over 30,000 have been infected. Since its first outbreak in 1976, Ebola has destroyed families, ruined economies, and rendered women widows, and children orphans. The World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and Doctors Without Borders or Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), are overwhelmed. Ebola has no cure! Experimental drugs, rehydration, safe burials, and quarantine, are the only answers yet. The fatality rate is 90% and the mortality rate hovers around 54% and 62%! Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone are bedeviled by the curse of Ebola. As Africans continue to die of Ebola, Westerners who contract the disease are cured! Why are Africans dying of the disease and Americans who contract it living? Is there a conspiracy to let Africans who contract the disease die? Thomas Eric Duncan who did not display the symptoms of Ebola when he arrived in the U.S. dies in Dallas at the Texas Presbyterian Hospital, unsaved! Months before, three Americans who contracted the disease lived! Dr. Martin Salia, a Sierra Leonean doctor who lives in the U.S. contracts the disease in Sierra Leone and returns to the U.S. only to die of the disease! Where is the cure that saved the lives of Americans that can't save Africans? This book unravels the mysteries surrounding the experimental drug, Zmapp, and why it can't save the lives of Africans but can save Americans! Countries like Nigeria, Senegal, and Mali, that also experienced the curse of Ebola, are discussed to see how they contained and eradicated the disease from their shores, and declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization. The influence of colonial masters and how they set the stage for future problems in West Africa, is also discussed in this book. As the scourge, snare and stigma associated with Ebola continues, Africans are left to bear the brunt, at home and abroad. The already stigmatized African is faced with another humiliating stigma that he must survive in his chosen diaspora! The book takes a digressive look at the ongoing police brutality and the continuous killing of unarmed black men in the U.S. and how grand juries across the U.S., do not charge the homicidal police officers. The book also takes a keen look at the testy and volatile relationship between police and black communities across the U.S. The link between Ebola and police brutality and the killing of unarmed black men in the U.S. are discussed in details, in this intriguing book. The unimportance of the lives of blacks, in the U.S. is compared to the stigma suffered by Africans because of Ebola.

Book Description :

This powerful history describes the daily progression of the Ebola outbreak that swept across West Africa and struck Europe and America from December 2013 to June 2016. A case study on a massive scale, it follows the narratives of numerous patients as well as the journey of physicians and scientists from discovery to action and from tracking to containment. The unfolding story reveals ever-shifting complexities such as the varied paths the infection took from country to country, the multiple responses of community members, and the occurrence of flare-ups when the outbreak was seemingly over. The book’s finely-documented present-tense reporting records key facts, events, and observations, including: Routes of Ebola transmission, incubation, symptoms, short- and long-term effects on survivors Early attempts to understand and contain the virus and curb practices contributing to its spread Medical, governmental, and public responses, from local education programs to global efforts Communication and conflict between healthcare workers and communities Social and economic outcomes of Ebola in the affected nations Ebola remains incurable, although a vaccine is now available. For members of the medical community, public health officials, medical historians, scholarly professionals, and interested laypeople, A Day-by-Day Chronicle of the 2013-2016 Ebola Outbreak makes starkly clear what we can learn from these events not only for future outbreaks of Ebola, but also for the emergence of as-yet unknown diseases.

Book Description :

Over 4,000 years ago... Deep in the heart of Africa is born an ancient civilization, architects of a new and sacred symbolic language. Congo, 1940... On an expedition, famed anthropologist William MacMillan stumbles upon a mysterious, ancient tomb. A legendary race of men and a newly reawakened mortal virus carry on the curse of an ancient king, determined to fight off every intruder. United in their purpose, they persevere, guarding their fiercely kept secret traditions, through the course of history. Zaire, 1996... Mercenaries and terrorists prepare for the final conflict. Objective: a race to riches, destroying everything in their path. The destiny of a young biologist becomes inextricably linked with a story much older than herself, one so far-flung as to seem ripped from the pages of books. Sara DeSantis is drawn into an adventure along the banks of the river Ebola, encountering many obstacles on her search. She is thrown into dealings with her cousin, Patrick Tipret, a jealous, unscrupulous man, unable to forgive her for being the favorite and thus a potential rival to the inheritance of Shannon MacMillan, their grandmother, owner of a vast tract of land in Tanzania. A journey across the plateaus and forests of Zaire calls her entire life into question, blending the past and present together. But even more difficult for her is confronting Alec Nardi, the man she once loved but now despises with all her being. Driven by the hope of making a sensational discovery, she is pushed past the boundaries of the familiar until nothing can stop her-not the atrocities of war, nor the horror of the strange magic rituals performed by the legendary leopard men. The virus traces its bloody trail through time. Her pursuit leads her beyond the disease, far beyond, toward a single revelation nestled deep in the jungle surrounding that dark and narrow river... Ebola.

Book Description :

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An urgent wake-up call about the future of emerging viruses and a gripping account of the doctors and scientists fighting to protect us, told through the story of the deadly 2013–2014 Ebola epidemic “Crisis in the Red Zone reads like a thriller. That the story it tells is all true makes it all more terrifying.”—Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Sixth Extinction From the #1 bestselling author of The Hot Zone, now a National Geographic original miniseries . . . This time, Ebola started with a two-year-old child who likely had contact with a wild creature and whose entire family quickly fell ill and died. The ensuing global drama activated health professionals in North America, Europe, and Africa in a desperate race against time to contain the viral wildfire. By the end—as the virus mutated into its deadliest form, and spread farther and faster than ever before—30,000 people would be infected, and the dead would be spread across eight countries on three continents. In this taut and suspenseful medical drama, Richard Preston deeply chronicles the pandemic, in which we saw for the first time the specter of Ebola jumping continents, crossing the Atlantic, and infecting people in America. Rich in characters and conflict—physical, emotional, and ethical—Crisis in the Red Zone is an immersion in one of the great public health calamities of our time. Preston writes of doctors and nurses in the field putting their own lives on the line, of government bureaucrats and NGO administrators moving, often fitfully, to try to contain the outbreak, and of pharmaceutical companies racing to develop drugs to combat the virus. He also explores the charged ethical dilemma over who should and did receive the rare doses of an experimental treatment when they became available at the peak of the disaster. Crisis in the Red Zone makes clear that the outbreak of 2013–2014 is a harbinger of further, more severe outbreaks, and of emerging viruses heretofore unimagined—in any country, on any continent. In our ever more interconnected world, with roads and towns cut deep into the jungles of equatorial Africa, viruses both familiar and undiscovered are being unleashed into more densely populated areas than ever before. The more we discover about the virosphere, the more we realize its deadly potential. Crisis in the Red Zone is an exquisitely timely book, a stark warning of viral outbreaks to come.
