UNICEF Urges Unity in Ebola Fight
By Prince Nagbe & Winnie Dixon

MONROVIA, June 16 (LINA) - The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has said Liberians can stop the spread of Ebola as victory over the killer disease relies on the collective efforts of communities.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency via mobile on Monday in Monrovia, the Officer in Charge of UNICEF’s Information and Communications Unit, Adolphus Scott, said Liberians should accept that Ebola is in the country, and come together as a unifying force in battling it.

The UNICEF official noted that it is time Liberians spread the message of the existence of the disease, as part of preventive measures in the fight against the virus.
He called on civil society, the media, religious and traditional leaders, among others, to join in the fight against the Ebola virus, adding, “This is one of the most important ways we can protect ourselves, our families and our communities.”

Mr. Scott is also calling on Liberians to address the issue of denial, noting that it is one of the ways the disease rapidly spreads, noting “stop saying Ebola does not exist, because it is not good for the country”.

He said it is time people step back and critically examine the issue surrounding the existence of Ebola in Liberia, as it has micro-organic origins, which means, “it cannot be seen by the naked eyes.”
