Afriem is just receiving reports that there is an Ebola suspected patient quarantined at Queens Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH).

A guardian of one the patients at the hospital sent a message arguing Malawians to play for the mother Malawi on ebola.

“Lets pray for our country am just coming from QECH now and the first Ebola case has been reported. The patient has just been referred from Mwanza Hospital,” she said.

She added that the doctors have since ran away from the patient as they also fear for their lives.

“Imagine when the doctors read notes from Mwanza hospital to confirm if the case is an Ebola case everybody in the labour ward including Doctor ran away,” she said, adding: “Am told she is a Mozambican.”

There are also claims that officials from Mwanza hospital have sent the patient to QECH deliberately because only Doctors and nurses from QECH went and shared allowances for the ebola workshop.

In that respect hospital personnel from Mwanza wants doctors and nurses from QECH to treat the patient because Mwanza did not have a pie of the allowances from the workshop.

However a doctor from QECH who was in the ward has confirmed that the patient is suffering from chicken pox and that he was quarantined just as a precaution measure.

“The patients who ran away from their beds were just afraid but its chicken pox,” he said.
