An Expert stated that Medecine Sans Frontiers wasted a lot of time in waiting for a vaccine to battle with the deadly Ebola virus.
The team’s response to the lethal disease has been admired all around the globe. The majority of the government authorities and the World Health Organization appreciated the response of the group.
MSF organized a proper set up in a region where Ebola has killed nearly 5,000 people. Thus far, the non government group has cured more than 3,000 patients of Ebola.
Jean-Herve Bradol, a member of MSF’s think tank stated that earlier the team focused on the policies it used earlier in the smaller outbreaks of the virus. Experts tried really hard to apply those methods and techniques on the patients of Ebola. It was certainly the biggest mistake of the team since it pushed Ebola to its limits in the West Africa.
On the other hand, Bradol, Paris based center for Reflection on Humanitarian Action stated that MSF asked for permission for the development of the vaccine in the end of September. Most of the experts were merely engaged in the talks regarding the cure and vaccine for the fatal disease. However, it was definitely impossible to control the disease without any proper treatment and medications.
MSF is commonly known as the Doctors Without Borders. It is an organization that worked almost day and night to discover an appropriate vaccine for Ebola. Ebola came into view in a few countries of West Africa in the month of March. At that time the team concentrated on the setup procedure through which they can isolate patients.
Currently, the group is treating patients in its six different medical centers in Liberia, Sierra, Guinea and Leona.
Nevertheless, the group stated that World Health Organization and Guinean government is responsible for this delay.
