Bush Meat Sale Drops In Bong County

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, April 27 (LINA) -Authorities of the Bong County branch of the Liberia Marketing Association have reported a huge reduction in the sale of bush meat on the market.

According to Madam Viola Cooper, Superintendent of the LMA branch, since the outbreak of the Ebola virus and the subsequent advice by health officials on ways to prevent the spread of the virus, including avoiding certain bush meat, sale of the meat has drastically reduced.

Madam Cooper observed that instead of citizens selecting certain spices, they have globally avoided all forms of dry meet, which, she said, has seriously cut the income of dry meat vendors.

Mark Saycole, operator of TX-7561, a regular commuter between Ganta, Nimba County and Monrovia, said his dry meat seller customers have dropped, owing to the awareness created by the Ministry of Health about the Ebola virus in the country.

Nearly two months ago, the Government of Liberia announced the outbreak of the Ebola disease in the country, as individuals with suspected cases of the disease crossed over from neighboring Guinea into Foya, Lofa County.

The government and local and international partners have since been on a massive public awareness on the prevention of the disease.

For about a week now, no new case of the disease has been reported throughout the country.
