Cuban doctor Felix Baez Sarria, a fantastic success story with an ironic twist

Dr. Feliz Sarria had less complications than ever before. None of the trauma of past Ebola victims whisked out of Africa.


Three months ago Ebola survivors had a horror story to tell. Kent Bradly describes feeling totally lonely and helpless with no control of bodily functions. The following Wall Street Journal article vividly details these early trials and tribulations. I learned quite a bit of interesting comparisons at the following link,

More recently when two Texas nurses were cured of Ebola, I noticed no signs of emotional or physical trauma as they celebrated being cured, one even with the help of a hug from the President. Now with Dr. Felix Sarria's even better care, you wouldn't know he had the same disease Kent Bradly had. His Fever never got above 100 degrees, the medications he took made sure of that. When he arrived in Switzerland for treatment he walked off the plane himself instead of on a stretcher. He had expressed optimism, and maintained email and phone contact with his wife. Somehow no one noted that today is an entirely different scenario than three months ago at least at high-tech facilities.

  1. Still resting, Dr. Baez Sarria and his doctor wife and doctor son personally have an opportunity to save many thousands of lives is they temporarily switch to fighting polio in Pakistan. The problem with medics being attacked started ten years ago when Doctor's Without Borders nurses insulted Pashtun morals by not having a male relative escort and not covering their heads (way before the US spied of bin Laden's DNA). Earlier President Kennedy's wife and later Secretary of State Madeleine Albright wore too heavy for the weather hooded coats, to cover their hair until the Saudis got used to seeing female dignities without head coverings. Dr. Sarria's family of doctors presents an opportunity to save a lot of lives temporarily fighting polio. His wife, Dr. Baez Sarria, while giving polio shots could wear an Ebola mask that happens to be black like a burka and always while in public for the first month be escorted by her husband or her doctor son.
