Bad news about Marburg

Just when it seemed they were getting things under control:
Dangerous mistakes at a hospital in Angola in recent days could undo the work of medical teams who have been battling an epidemic of the deadly Marburg virus
Apparently a series of mistakes have led to unnecessary exposures in the hospital which is the focus of the outbreak
Two other mishaps threatened patients. In one, the report said, "the body of a deceased patient was left, uncleaned and uncollected, on an open ward for more than eight hours, placing hospital staff and other patients at risk."

In another case, staff members put a baby into the cot of a child who had just died of Marburg virus, without first disinfecting the cot.


Based on this, I'd have to agree with those who suggest closing the hospital would be for the best.

Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how came across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a diabetes dog related site focusing on diabetes dog and mens health related topics.

Really great blog! I noticed a mention about relief from arthritis pain . I thought you might be interested to hear that both my parents and several of their friends have had problems with arthritis and we have been very lucky to have come across Bioflow. They are sold at relief from arthritis pain and they have been worth every penny. They don't seem to work for everyone but they have helped reduce the pain in my parents arthritis so that they almost don't notice it any longer. They'd still be taking painkillers if it wasn't for wearing a Bioflow on their wrist

your teeth safely and effectively. This is why you can pay as much as $600
to get your teeth whitened professionally.
