Brand Kindles Till they broun out,

One man from another is known by his speech
The simpleton by his silence.

The Sierra Leonean doctor who treated over 100 Ebola patients has also died. Dr Sheik Umar Khan who was hailed as a national hero for disregarding his own health and helping sick patients, died yesterday July 29th, from the deadly disease after being diagnosed with the Virus last week. Dr Sheik contacted the Virus despite wearing protective dear when treating the patients.
In a recent interview, the 39-year-old doctor had expressed fears for his life because of his regular contact with Ebola patients.

  ?I am afraid for my life. Health workers are prone to the disease because we are the first port of call for somebody who is sickened by the disease. Even with the full protective clothing you put on, you are at risk?
