Cuba records another death of Ebola health worker

Cuban Health Workers arriving Monrovia, Liberia - The Wall Street Journal

The Cuban Health Ministry has confirmed that a Cuban male nurse, who was sent to Sierra Leone as part of a team to help fight Ebola, has died of malaria, on Sunday.

A report from the ministry, said on Monday in Havana that Reinaldo Antigua, 43, died on Sunday of cerebral complications caused by malaria in a hospital in Freetown, and one of the Ebola hotspots.

It said the victim had earlier presented the first symptoms of Ebola and was later confirmed to have malaria.

This is the second Cuban health staff helping the fight against the Ebola epidemic to die of Malaria in West Africa.

The first, an economist, Jorge Guerra-Rodriguez, died of the disease last October.

Cuba has sent more than 200 male doctors and nurses to the countries seriously affected by the Ebola virus.

    I had always thought that according to the Nigerian
    constitution, if that document still commands the respect of all, law
    enforcement of all sorts was the responsibility of the Federal Government. If
    so, Can someone please tell me how legal this Hezbah organisation is?
