An Ebola survivor who was admitted at the Port Loko Ebola Center is presently suffering from heart complication.
Adamsay Kamara was one of the many survivors who left the treatment center with new hopes but her new ailment has made her to loath life again after doctors informed her she needs advance medical care.
I never had this problem until after my survival from the virus,” she disclosed to SPECIMEN.
According to her, eight of her family members died from the virus, including her father and mother. She and her brother survived but after she was discharged she started experiencing abnormal heart beats.
“The way I am feeling now is worse than how I was with Ebola,” she lamented.
In her desperation for a cure, Adamsay forced her way through the security of the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, while he was at the Chinese Hospital at Jui on Tuesday 10th March 2015, during the handover of a medical lab to the Government.
“I met the President and he referred me to the Minister of Social welfare,” she said.
At meeting the minister, Mr. Moijeh Kaikai, Adamsay was referred to the Connaught Hospital where she is presently admitted.
Cases of survivors suffering from various ailments after treatment are becoming common with some patients reporting losing their vision.
The Managing Editor of SPECIMEN, Alpha Bedoh Kamara, is presently facilitating ways by which Adamsay can get treatment.
Adamsay had earlier met Kamara who helped her while she was looking for support.
“I was surprised when she called my phone and said she has named me as her family,” Kamara said, adding that he had promised her to use the newspaper to lobby for help.
