Bandits In Guinea Steal Blood Samples Believed To Be Infected With Ebola

This virus is worse than worthless to your average illiterate highway robber; the "bandits" will next be reported selling the samples to "CIA/ISIS" for an attack on America

Bandits in Guinea got more than they bargained for when they stopped a taxi van and made off with blood samples which are believed to be infected with the deadly Ebola virus.


Authorities made a radio appeal on Friday, calling on the unidentified robbers to hand over the samples, which were stolen from the minibus taxi during its 265km (165-mile) journey from central Kankan prefecture to a test site in southern Gueckedou.




The samples were drawn from a single person and were stored in a sealed container, and handed off to the taxi driver when armed bandits stopped the vehicle the aid group had commissioned near the town of Kissidougou, said Faya Etienne Tolno, a press officer for the Guinea Red Cross.

Tolno explained that the Guinea Red Cross did not have its own vehicles for transport, which explains why a taxi was commissioned. No one was injured in the incident, which took place on a road known for banditry.

“We don’t understand why they stole the blood sample. Perhaps they thought there was cash hidden in the flask,” Tolno said.


Blood samples literally worthless to average thieves
Dr Barry Moumie, who heads patient care for the national Ebola response coordination committee, told the Associated Press: “We have informed the security services. If these thieves handle this blood, it will be dangerous.” Ebola is spread primarily by contact with infected bodily fluids including blood, feces and vomit.


“I can assure you, however, that the sample-transportation procedures will now be strengthened to avoid such disappointments,” Moumie said.

The theft underscores the many challenges to the aid response, despite millions of dollars’ worth of international support pouring into West Africa to fight a virus now responsible for more than 5,000 deaths in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.


This, is brilliant and a prime example as to exactly why these morons should not be allowed into the U.S. for treatment after contracting the virus: American virologist David Safronetz carries buckets containing blood samples from suspected Ebola patients.

Dr Hans Rosling, who is advising Liberia on its Ebola response, noted the difficulties of transporting such samples, saying countries and groups like the United States and the United Nations have rules about moving such hazardous materials.

“Some of the planes – the US military and UN planes – they will not fly Ebola specimens,” he said. “But they have their regulations, and to cut red tape is not easy.”


"Blood samples… get your Ebola blood samples while fresh… very cheap only 2 Francs…"

In Liberia, “we use specifically allocated motorbikes and cars. We use what’s available and what’s reasonable, we have to organize things as we go along,” he said. “It may have been the correct decision in Guinea (to use a taxi) and the robbery was just a sad mishap.”

“There’s no way we can secure transport in all of this area,” Rosling said. “It was a good initiative to try to get the sample out.”
