En Afrique de l'Ouest, le virus Ebola décime les blouses blanches

08/31/2014 06:51 GMT

Par Mouctar BAH

CONAKRY, 31 août 2014 (AFP) - Toujours pressée, celle qui se fait appeler "Dr Mara" court d'un service à l'autre de l'hôpital Donka de Conakry avec la tenue et les gants qu'elle a achetés à ses frais pour se protéger du virus Ebola.

Tout comme cette infirmière de la capitale guinéenne, manquant souvent de tout, les personnels de santé se sacrifient pour arrêter la terrible épidémie qui frappe l'Afrique de l'Ouest, souvent au prix de leur vie.
