on Ebola article NEWS BOSTON — Kenya’s Standard Newspaper has come under fire from its editor for an article that calls for a “sickness-free” world, citing Ebola in Africa as an example.
The article was published in the Sunday edition of the newspaper, which has a circulation of around 7 million.
The title, “Is it time to stop being scared?” and the subtitle, “I don’t think so,” were both picked up by social media and shared widely on the internet.
It was published the week before the country was hit by a massive Ebola outbreak.
In the article, which was originally shared by the Standard Newspaper’s Facebook page, the paper’s editor, Mohamed Elbaz, writes that the Ebola outbreak in Africa is not a new thing, but is something that has taken place since the 1950s.
Elbazzi argues that the outbreak was not caused by the virus itself but instead by the Ebola pandemic.
The outbreak, which began in March, has killed over 7,400 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, according to the World Health Organization.
“If we do not deal with the pandemic, we are doomed to the same fate as all other nations of Africa,” he writes.
El-Bazzi goes on to say that “we have to change the world’s attitude toward Ebola.”
The article also calls for the eradication of the Ebola virus.
Elba Y. Ndunga, a spokeswoman for the Standard newspaper, told The Associated Press by phone that the paper has removed the article.
Elbebs account did not immediately respond to an AP request for comment.
Kenya is the only African nation that has experienced an Ebola outbreak, with more than 4,600 people contracting the virus in the country alone.
Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta, has said he is confident that the virus can be contained.
But the country has been struck by a series of deadly attacks, including an attack on the country’s Parliament in October that killed at least seven people and injured hundreds more.
The attack was followed by a similar attack on a presidential compound in the capital, Nairobi, that killed more than 100 people.
The country has faced a surge in attacks on public facilities, including hospitals and schools, as well as attacks on police and government employees.
In December, the government announced it was stepping up the fight against the Ebola epidemic by setting up Ebola response teams, deploying 2,000 more soldiers and deploying an ambulance to help with the response.
The government also plans to increase health services in remote areas to prevent the spread of the virus.
The Standard newspaper article did not say when it was written or why it was not shared widely.
The story also did not include a link to a YouTube video that included footage of the deadly attack on Nairobbi.
“The Standard Newspaper is a family owned business with a dedicated team of editors and reporters, who are dedicated to quality journalism and a positive future for Kenya,” Elbafz says in the article that was published Sunday.
“We are not afraid of the public but we are not scared of the world.”
The Daily Mail newspaper, the leading English-language newspaper in the United Kingdom, was also hit by the controversy on Sunday.
In a series on Sunday that included headlines that used the word “silly,” the Daily Mail published a lengthy piece about Ebola that said that the country could face a “disaster” if the virus were to continue spreading.
The Daily Sun has published many opinion pieces that have been widely shared on social media.
In its article, the Daily Sun says that it has published articles about the Ebola crisis and its consequences for Kenya’s health system and society.
“As we know, Ebola is a terrible illness that has brought out the worst in people,” the article says.
“In Kenya, we need to be ready for the worst and not let fear rule our minds.
The worst that could happen is a pandemic with a devastating effect on our people.”
The Telegraph, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., did not respond to a request for an interview.
The Associated News, which also is owned in part by News Corp. and the British newspaper publisher, The Times, did not reply to a list of questions from AP.
The Independent and the New York Times also did’t respond to AP requests for comment on the controversy.
A BBC spokeswoman said that it does not comment on specific stories.
The Ebola outbreak is the deadliest in modern history.
More than 12,000 people have died in the three countries where it has been diagnosed.
It has not yet been confirmed whether the virus causes Ebola.
