The video below, published in an African news article, which allegedly shows a victim of the Ebola virus rising from the dead in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa, is going viral on social networking websites. The video, after watching it myself realized that the news article is misleading and is only an attempt to cause widespread panic or to drive a lot of traffic to the website that published the misleading article. Please watch the video below for yourself.

Breaking News! Ebola Victim Rises from the Dead in Africa

The Video and News Article


The first reports of Ebola victims rising from the dead was reported by Liberia’s National Newspaper.initially, officials from the World Health Organization fled in shock and horror as the Ebola patients suddenly arose from the dead. After organizing military reinforcements and obtaining increased containment measures, World Health Organization’s special operations staff quickly responded with military assistance and quarantined the two Ebola victims who arose from the dead.

In the video, Dr. Richard Besser, ABC News' Chief Health and Medical editor, said the 37-year-old man covered in a bed sheet on the ground may have died of Ebola or something else. No one knows if the man is suffering from the Ebola virus, sick from something else or dead. They saw him lying motionlessly in the streets of Monrovia, Liberia, though he had died from the Ebola virus and were too afraid to go near him, so they called the health authority to remove the body.

When the people from the health authority came, they just put their personal protective equipment or suits on and proceed to remove the body from the scene; they didn’t even check the man’s pulse to determine if he was dead or alive. I guess since the Ebola virus is killing so many people in Liberia, they just thought he was just another victim to be disposed of.

Now, based on the video footage, the man did not rise from the dead, simply because no one had pronounced him dead before or the man was not dead in the first place.
