"More dead bodies, than living patients"

     Stories of the 
"Ebola fighters" are all over the internet. Today the Business Recorder introduced the world to a 58-year-old married physician, with five children, that left her safe home in Uganda to help the people of Liberia.  Dr. Anne Atai Omoruto has had previous experience treating patients with Ebola in her native country. Thus, her knowledge was invaluable. Dr. Omoruto stated that when she first arrived in Monrovia the city appeared out of a scene of a "horror film". Further stating "There were more dead bodies than living patients. People were dying at home, in the markets, on the streets, in the hospitals and in the only Ebola treatment unit that existed at that time". Not one to hold her tongue, she immediately announced to the world the danger of not containing the Ebola virus in West Africa.  The conditions deteriorated so quickly that the government of Liberia announced quarantines to help identify Ebola infected citizens and to help decrease the spread of pathogen.  
     In Monrovia she cared for patients at the John F. Kennedy hospital, which is the primary Ebola treatment facility in Liberia. Since her arrival, she has taught over 1000 healthcare workers for the World Health Organization.
