Top Ebola Doctor from Sierra Leone has died.
Sierra Leone’s top Ebola doctor, Sheikh Umar Khan died on Tuesday from complications of the disease.
He was the main doctor at the front lines of what is now considered the worst Ebola outbreak in history, with 670 dead, primarily in West Africa. He is credited with treating more than 100 victims and has previously been hailed as a national hero.
One small bit of good news: The current outbreak has proven to be less deadly than previous strands of the disease. Instead of a 90% mortality rate, 60% of the infected have died. And in some areas in Guinea, the situation has stabilized, with Doctors Without Borders even closing one of its Ebola treatment centers.
Still, the fight continues…

Our people don’t frigging get it!
An american, an English man, and a Nigerian were on a ship. Suddenly the Devil appeared and said, “Drop anything in the sea, if I find it I will eat u, If I can’t, I will be your slave!” The American dropped a pin, the Devil found it and ate him. The English man dropped a coin, the Devil found it and ate him too. The Nigerian opened a bottle of water, poured it in the sea and said, “Na today be today, go find am!”.
Let’s play “yes” or “no.” You ask me questions on anonymous or not, and I can only answer YES or NO.
