A 45-year-oldman identified as Joe Davies, collapsed on Tuesday, 25 November at the intersection of and Carey and Johnson Streets, central Monrovia and is fear dead.
Joe Davies, a mechanic, reportedly works at a garage on 13th Street in Sinkor, Monrovia. He was found lying helpless in the street. The victim was later taken away by a team from the Ebola Task Force.
According to a senior brother of the victim, Joe and him work at the same place, but said last Saturday while working, his brother (Joe) mistakenly hit his head with a hammer and later started shivering.
He further narrated that after the Saturday’s incident at the garage, his brother went home and the next morning he asked his mother, Madam Mary Davies to prepare him a cup of tea and after drinking the tea, he sat in front of the house, but later left to take a walk without informing anyone where he was going.
The senior brother, identified as John B. Davies, 56, said Joe never showed signs or symptoms of Ebola such as vomiting, headache or stomach pain. He said his brother never interacted with any sick person or suspected patient.
He continued that the incident happened in the afternoon hour on Saturday and there was no bleeding so his brother was never taken to a clinic or center to be tested; he only took some pain killers.
John noted that his brother is not married, but lives with his Mom on Johnson Street, in the Via Governor community. Bystanders said while walking, the victim decided to take a rest in front of a store where he later collapsed and became unconscious.
