By Korboi Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent
VOINJAMA, July 5 (LINA) -Lofa County Superintendent George Dunor is urging religious and traditional leaders, civil society and youth groups to get fully involved in the fight against the Ebola virus in Lofa County.
Superintendent Dunor said these institutions could serve as conduits in providing awareness on preventive measures to halt the spread of the Ebola disease in the county.
Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Friday in Voinjama City, he said it was “very frustrating” to note that citizens still doubt the existence of the Ebola in Lofa County when health workers are dying of the disease.
Superintendent Dunor noted with “deep regret” the untimely deaths of two health practitioners who lost their lives while trying to save Ebola patients in Lofa County.
At the same time, Superintendent Dunor has sent a message of condolence to the Lofa County Health Team, as well as families of the deceased for “the irreparable loss” of these health workers.
Meanwhile, Superintendent Dunor is encouraging local and traditional chiefs, commissioners, women and youth groups as well as community leaders to spread the warnings from health authorities regarding the deadly disease in Lofa County.
