    This is a short diary from the BBC global health reporter Tulip Mazumdar who has just spent some time in Sierra Leone.

    There is also a short film clip showing the problems families face when trying to find care for their relatives.

    This Illustration Of Ebola Coverage Shows How Problematic Media Reports Can Be

    http://i.huffpost.com/gen/2147608/th...-EBOLA-900.jpg

    The first Ebola patient to be diagnosed in the U.S. died Wednesday. Three days earlier, government health officials in Sierra Leone reported 121 Ebola deaths in a single day. But Western media made little mention of the latter.
    Andre Carrilho, the artist responsible for the illustration had the following to say:

    "I think unfortunately, in the Western media, there are first-world diseases and third-world diseases, and the attention devoted to the latter depends on the threat they pose to us, not on a universal measure of human suffering," he said. "A death in Africa, or Asia for that matter, should be as tragic as a death in Europe or the USA, and it doesn’t seem to be."

    Carrilho says this difference in treatment and media coverage shifts the paradigm.

    "If an epidemic breaks out in the USA or Europe, suddenly the reporting is more engaged. This gives rise to a few side effects," he said. "The 'us versus them' relationship shifts from detachment to fear of incoming immigrants from affected countries, and in both race and nationalism have an active part."

    If Carrilho could see one change in the way the outbreak and public health are discussed, he says, it would be to tack on more global perspective. "I would like to hear from the people who are affected everywhere," he toldHuffPost. "I would like to feel that everyone’s voices are more equally heard, even if they speak a language that is not mine."
