‘We Knew Duncan Would Die’

first_imgNews of the death of Ebola victim in the United States, Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan, did not surprise a cross section of Liberians interviewed by the Daily Observer yesterday.“I knew he was not going to make it,” said a money changer on Benson Street, minutes after Texas Presbyterian Health officials announced his death.“Consider his situation,” the man who chose not to give his name, said. “There are at least four Americans who also got the virus, and why are they not dead?” he asked.A young Liberian female university student, 20, said, “The wicked manner that Duncan went to America, aware that he had come in contact with an Ebola patient convinced me that he would not survive his ordeal.” “Oh, did you people at the Observer ever think he was going to survive?” She answered her own rhetorical question. “I knew he would not have made it.”Others interviewed drew attention to Dr. Kent Brantly, the American doctor who got infested here in Liberia with Ebola, but was treated in a US hospital and is now free from the disease.“He is an American,” the taxi driver said, “and so they took care of him.”A mother of three on Carey Street in Monrovia also reminded the Daily Observer  of Dr. Rick Sarca, another American, who got infested while in Liberia.“Is he dead?” she posed the question to the Daily Observer.Like the two American doctors, another American, Nurse Nancy Writebol, also survived after being treated at a US hospital.Many other Liberians made mention of NBC Cameraman Ashoka Mukpo, who recently got infested and was rushed to the United States.Cameraman Mukpo has received blood donation from Dr. Kent Brantly and doctors in the United States are waiting to administer transfusion to save his life.“Why Duncan did not receive such an important gift that could have saved his life?” asked another Liberian, who said he is a student at the University of Liberia.When many of those interviewed were reminded that the Americans had begun administering a drug approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration, FDA, on Ebola victim Duncan, they still responded that the Americans “pretended they were doing their best for him.”“They knew that the drug would not have saved Duncan’s life,” said another.  “Why are they not using the same drug on other Americans?”Many commented that the United States is a country that takes care of its own and took the Liberian government to task for its inability to care for its citizens just as Americans do for their own.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

England 1-1 Russia: Three Lions player ratings – Who impressed in Euro opener?

first_img Gary Cahill – 7 – Solid, if uninspiring, at the back. Was rarely under pressure, although was booked after giving away a cheap free-kick at half-way 11 Raheem Sterling – 5 – Struggled to impose himself on the game due to the impressive work of Russian right-back Igor Smolnikov, who consistently blocked Sterling’s attempts to beat him. Looked scared to take on defenders, and compounded his misery with a miss kicked cross when England were breaking Kyle Walker – 8 – A constant attacking threat who linked up well with Dele Alli and Adam Lallana, playing two key passes as England pressed the advantage early on 11 Wayne Rooney – 6 – Controlled possession well in a deeper midfield role, playing some perfect long-range passes. Influence waned in the second half, and was taken off after 77 minutes 11 11 11 11 Danny Rose – 8 – Like Walker, he was a menace from full-back, impressing at both ends of the pitch, although his final ball was often below the required quality 11 11 11 Chris Smalling – 7 – A dominant force in the air, Smalling prevented towering striker Artem Dzyuba ever truly imposing himself upon the game. Also had a good chance to score with a header England failed to capitalise on their dominance in their Euro 2016 opener against Russia, conceding an injury time equaliser to draw 1-1.Despite dominating their opponents for the majority of the game, the Russians held firm, and only conceded from a set piece.Eric Dier curled a free-kick into the far corner to open the scoring, and the Three Lions appeared to be edging towards claiming all three points.However, with just seconds remaining, Vasili Berezutski sent a looping header over Joe Hart which means both teams share the spoils – with Wales top of Group B.Click the right arrow, above, to see talkSPORT’s ratings for the England team… Eric Dier – 9 – Opened the scoring with an excellent free-kick. The young midfielder patrolled the centre of the park with a maturity beyond his years. Eased the pressure on the defence, and allowed the full-backs to attack high up the pitch Dele Alli – 7 – Created a number of chances for both himself and his teammates, but lacked the cutting edge which was expected of him following a stellar domestic campaign Joe Hart – 6 (Click the right arrow, above, to see the England player ratings) – Was rarely troubled by a poor Russia side, but fulfilled all tasks required of him. Could do nothing about the goal, which looped far over his head 11 Harry Kane – 5 – A frustrating evening for the prolific striker, who was often isolated from his teammates. Wasted on set-piece duty 11 Adam Lallana – 7 – Started brightly in the attack and had two good chances on goal, but faded early in the second half. Combined well with the overlapping Walker on the right wing last_img read more
