Local journalist describes Ebola virus in Guinea


ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- The New York Doctor who tested positive for Ebola on Thursday had recently traveled from Guinea.

Voice of America Journalist Carol Guensburg, doesn't find the doctor's diagnosis surprising. Guensburg recently traveled to Guinea for a reporting trip herself.

"You look at the flow of people from West Africa or the global flow of people, its not surprising that something popped up," Guensburg explains.

While Guensberg did not meet directly with Ebola patients in Guinea, she did meet with survivors of the virus who had been brought together by UNICEF.

Guensberg also gained access to Guinea's Prime Minister Mohamed Said Fofana, who held small briefings with an Armed guard in tow and held a town hall meeting to press villagers to change their ways.

Those changes aren't so simple says Guensberg: "Doing so means changing customs especially burial customs."
