Citizens Chase Ebola Awareness Team In Konia  

By Korboi Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, June 24 (LINA) - Some citizens of Konia Town, Zeyeama Clan in Zorzor District, Lofa County recently chased away some health workers who had gone to the town to create awareness about the Ebola virus that has hit the county.

The citizens insisted that reports about the outbreak of the Ebola virus were false.

Zorzor District Commissioner Henry Wolobah made the disclosure recently in a cell phone interview with the Liberia News Agency.

Mr. Wolobah is meanwhile urging residents of the district to take preventive measures, adding that Ebola is a disease that is very dangerous and is easy to kill.

He is also appealing to the County Health Team not to be deterred by this development, and to continue its robust awareness in the district to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

In a related development, health authorities at the Tellewoyan Memorial Hospital in Voinjama, Lofa County have reported two suspected cases of Ebola at the Hospital in Voinjama.

The Nursing Directress Miss Genevieve Hilton made the disclosure Tuesday during an Ebola coordination meeting held at the Lofa County Health Office in Voinjama City, Lofa County.

Miss Hilton told the gathering that the two suspects have been quarantined at the isolation Unit in Voinjama.

During the meeting, surveillance committees were set up, one in Voinjama and another in Foya, to monitor and collect specimens from individuals who show signs and symptoms of the disease.
