Ebola survivor I, Senga Omeonga: ‘Every day I’m still thinking: When was I contaminated?’


Senga Omeonga comes from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the country that had the first recognized Ebola outbreak in 1976 and where the virus was discovered. Omeonga, a medical doctor, also received Ebola training in DRC, but he saw his first case this summer in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia, where he has lived for the past 3 years

My own antibodies plus the ZMapp helped me for a speedy recovery. I had three doses and, unfortunately, I had a severe reaction to the medication on the third dose. I think it was a medical error: I did not receive the antiallergy medication they have to give before to minimize side effects.
