Margibi Launches Ebola Sensitization

Richard Baysah,  LINAMargibi County Correspondent
KAKATA, July 10 (LINA) - Margibi County authorities have launched a community-based awareness campaign against the deadly Ebola virus.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the awareness was launched Wednesday at the Kakata City Hall.

In opening remarks, Margibi Superintendent John Buway said the exercise is intended to sensitize the citizenry on the prevention and danger of the Ebola virus.

Superintendent Buway denounced public perception that the virus is not real, and urged the citizenry of Margibi County to take seriously the existence of the disease.

He quoted medical sources that say Ebola has claimed the lives of two persons in Margibi, including a trainee of the Kakata Rural Teachers Training Institution (KRTTI).

Superintendent Buway called on citizens of Margibi to support the campaign to get the Ebola messages to every rural community in the county.

Meanwhile, the Margibi County Health Officer is urging all Liberians to take seriously the information being provided on the disease, noting that would help them from contracting the Ebola virus.

Dr. Hawa Moore-Kromah said it was time that everyone acts quickly to help contain the Ebola virus in the county and the country at-large.

Dr. Kromah insisted that the virus exists, contrary to widespread disbelief that health authorities have been raising false alarm.

She said the awareness campaign was taking place at the right time, considering the number of people who died from the Ebola virus in the country.

The Margibi County Health Officer cautioned the citizens to get involved in spreading of messages against the virus. 

Local officials, chiefs, representatives of Ministries and Agencies, health practitioners, legislators of Margibi County, concessions, among others, attend the Ebola awareness launch.
