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."

Police: 2 police impersonations could be linked


ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- Police want all women in the area to be on the lookout now that two different states are reporting men "impersonating officer" incidents. There's a strong chance both may even be connected.

"Extremely lucky was this victim in this case," said Arlington County police spokesperson Dustin Sternbeck, talking about the incident closest to Washington D.C.

Sternbeck said it happened on Saturday just before midnight in the Ballston area when an African American man wearing plain clothes with a dark colored Crown Victoria pulled over a woman using a flashing light on the dashboard.

The suspect, according to the victim, showed a badge and demanded she exit her vehicle into his not once, but twice. Once the victim refused and demanded a uniformed officer be present, Sternbeck said the suspect left.
