Sierra Leone : Salone Free From Bird Flu

Via All Africa :

" Kenema : Consultant for avian and human influenza (AHI) has informed media practitioners during a one-day workshop organized for journalists by the ministry of agriculture and food security in Kenema that Sierra Leone was safe from avian influenza commonly known as bird flu. Dr. Samuel Carew said the disease was dreadful as it has claimed several lives in other countries.

"Bird flu is worst than HIV/AIDS because it cannot be cured and when it breaks the movement of people living within the locality becomes immediately restricted," he said, adding that Sierra Leone was a blessed country not to have encountered any major outbreak of the disease or any natural disaster that would attract the attention of the international community."
