Motsoaledi: No known Ebola case in SA

Johannesburg - There is no known Ebola case in South Africa, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said on Monday.

A Guinea woman, suspected to have been infected with the virus, has tested negative for Ebola.

She was admitted at Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital because she was in labour, she had high fever and she was screened for the virus, Motsoaledi said.

Please just test her again!!! We've got already a lot of health issues in this country! We don't need that on top.

My suggestion is that let us all, the entire SA population, undertake a mass protest that all borders, ports and airports must be shut down and no one should be let into the country no matter where they're from in the world until this outbreak is over worldwide. We know how incapable our authorities are and we are a capable bunch and democracy give us power to that effect. so let's stop pointing fingers and do this protest to stop any possibility, true or false, that will bring this virus in our shores.

SAA MUST stop going to west Africa. It only takes one infected person to spread that dreadful disease to the nation of SA

Yea. But then you don't know much about anything. Do you?

Do you think the govt would tell us even if the tests were positive?

I do feel that the crew flying SAA flights to Guinea should be extra careful. How exactly is this virus spread ?
Kathy Mackay 2014-08-14 08:22:30 PM
I wonder how long the virus must be in ones body before a test can be shown to be positive ?
