Deadly Ebola Virus; Chief medical officer’s statement on St. Lucia’s preparedness for the Ebola virus

Ebola Virus

During a press conference on Friday August 8th Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Merlene Fredericks stated that The World Health Organisation (WHO) has officially declared the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) as a public health event of international concern. Dr. Fredericks stated that Ebola is a viral disease spread by direct contact with an infected person so if someone touches or is caring for someone who is ill with the virus and gets into contact with the ill person’s secretions, eg. saliva, vomit, diarrhea, perspiration, then such a person can get infected. The CMO informed the media of WHO’s statement to all states re: the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) which reads as follows: “There should be no general ban on international travel or trade; restrictions outlined in these recommendations regarding the travel of EVD cases and contacts should be implemented. States should provide travelers to Ebola affected and at-risk areas with relevant information on risks, measures to minimize those risks, and advice for managing a potential exposure. “States should be prepared to detect, investigate, and manage Ebola cases; this should include assured access to a qualified diagnostic laboratory for EVD and, where appropriate, the capacity to manage travelers originating from known Ebola-infected areas who arrive at international airports or major land crossing points with unexplained febrile illness. The general public should be provided with accurate and relevant information on the Ebola outbreak and measures to reduce the risk of exposure. States should be prepared to facilitate the evacuation and repatriation of nationals (e.g. health workers) who have been exposed to Ebola.”

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your
    favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
