Dr. Liu stated that the government of China has transported a quantity of “reagents for the diagnosing of both the Zika and yellow fever viruses if at all they occur”.
He disclosed that they transported the reagents because of the risk of the virus migrating to Sierra Leone, adding that the laboratory has the ability to contain it.
Dr. Liu noted that they had 10 medical professionals from China CDC with various expertise.
He said for the past 6 months they have “diagnosed about seven thousand cases of suspected Ebola cases” highlighting the most recent cases and the last in January this year involving two ladies.
He explained to AYV that another important part of their job is “working together with the Ministry of Health and the WHO” and studying the Ebola virus resistance in the fluids of survivors “to ensure they don’t have the virus any longer”.
This is the fourth team from the China CDC since the outbreak of the virus in Sierra Leone in 2014.
