On her special visit recently to the Royal Institute of International Affairs (known as CHATHAM HOUSE) in London, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of Britain spoke of need to ensure Sierra Leoneans, especially children, withA other infectious diseases like Malaria are not overlooked during ongoing fight agaiaAnst Ebola.

 

According to reports, Queen Elizabeth is "concerned that efforts to address Ebola should not detract from work to combat other health threats in West Africa."

Queen Elizabeth addressing Chatham House on the day she expressed her personal concern that importance of fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone not overshadow Malaria.

 

Indeed, I totally agree with the Queen that Malaria affects and kills more patients than Ebola BUT what makes Ebola devastating, is that it has no medicinal cure - unlike Malaria which can be very easily cured when detected. Ebola is merciless and has killed over 100 skilled Sierra Leone health workers including 11 medAical doctors in less than 8 months. Malaria simply does not have that kind of devastating effect.  Albeit, may God bless the Queen for caring about Sierra Leone and may God bless Chatham House, a veritable International Think Tank.
