As word has got around about these problems, some people have opted not to take the medicine as directed, or at all. I dont know the right dose, and Ive heard different things, says Fatamata Kamara of Kroo Bay, a slum in the capital Freetown. I know it made some people very sick, and Im afraid to go to the hospital and get Ebola, she says. But Kamaras reluctance to take the malaria drug increases the likelihood of that very problem. Because malarial fevers are similar to Ebola fevers, anyone with a fever is told to check into a clinic to be tested. There, people with malaria wait hours or days for diagnosis beside others who may have Ebola.
