Terror en una aldea africana

Un poblado del Condado de Nimba, en Liberia, vive aterrorizado no sólo por la amenaza del ébola, sino también por la posibilidad de que dos mujeres que murieron por esa enfermedad hayan vuelto a caminar entre los vivos como zombies.



El ébola ya se cobró la vida de 3000 personas sólo en África Occidental, pero una aldea de Liberia, en esa región, tiene un temor muy distinto: los vecinos aseguran que Dorris Quoi y Ma Kebeh, ambas víctimas del virus, circulan por las calles buscando presas, informó el sitio inglés Daily Mirror.

Todavía no está del todo claro si se trata de un fenómeno supernatural o si la paranoia por demás justificada de la población impulsó estos casos, pero las mujeres, que tienen entre 40 y 60 años, no están más en el lugar donde murieron.

De hecho, allegados a Ma Kebeh aseguraron que la mujer pasó dos días encerrada en su casa sin comida ni agua antes de ser declarada muerta, pero antes de que pudieran enterrarla reaccionó y volvió a la vida.



Ebola victims in African village 'rise from the dead' causing panic and fear among locals


Panic is spreading across an African community after reports that two Ebola victims have risen from the dead.

The victims, both females in their 40s and 60s, died of the deadly virus in separate communities in Nimba County, Liberia.

But according to reports in a local newspaper, the pair have reportedly been resurrected and are now walking among the living, causing panic and fear among locals.

The New Dawn Nimba County said the late Dorris Quoi of Hope Village Community and the second victim identified as Ma Kebeh, in her late 60s, were about to be taken for burial when they rose from the dead.

Ma Kebeh had been indoors for two nights without food and medication before her alleged death.

Nimba County has recently reported unusual news of Ebola cases, including one about a native doctor from the county, who claimed that he could cure infected victims, dying of the virus himself last week.

Since the Ebola outbreak in Nimba County, this is the first incident of dead victims resurrecting, the paper said.

The Ebola outbreak has already killed around 2,800 people in five West African countries this year while an estimated 5,800 people have been infected with the virus, which has no known cure.

America’s respected Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has predicted there could be up to 1.4million cases of deadly Ebola by the end of January.
