Anti-Ebola Measures Ignored Along Highways

By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, April 15 (LINA) -Measures announced by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus are being ignored along the highways in some parts of Liberia.

Liberia News Agency Correspondent John Bropleh, who travelled from Monrovia to Harper, Maryland during the weekend, saw cooked and roasted bush meat being sold as usual at checkpoints from Margibi to RiverGee counties.

The LINA Correspondent also observed that the ban placed on the consumption of bush meat is being overlooked by cook shop and restaurant owners along the route,  as they continue to cook and serve bush meat to customers.

However, several restaurant owners and commuters interviewed by the LINA Correspondent seem not to be fully aware of the outbreak of the Ebola virus and the measures announced by the health ministry.

Meanwhile, normal activities are continuing in Maryland County as messages about the Ebola outbreak continue to flow on UNMIL Radio, which presently serves as the only medium of information dissemination in the county.
