The spread of new infectious Ebola virus is indeed a declining trend. But that does not mean the task of the volunteers has been completed. They have to keep working until the incidence of cases to zero. One of the most instrumental in the downward trend in new infections Ebola in Guinea, West Africa, is a red cross team. Not only collect blood, they also go to the field to bury Ebola positive patients who died, providing education, vaccinations, to routine checks. Unfortunately, their efforts do not get appreciation from the public. Never got ucapa thank you, they instead attacked

most recent attack occurred in the city of Forecariah, about 60 km from the capital Conakry. Two Red Cross workers were beaten up severely. Traore said that the attack is based on the misunderstanding between local residents with volunteers. \”They thought we eviscerated because it prohibits burial suit local customs are highly vulnerable to transmit Ebola. They also thought that we were doing vaccinations to children is an attempt to transmit Ebola conspiracy to them,\” he said again.
