By Korboi Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, July 15 (LINA) - A nurse at the Tellewoyan Memorial Hospital in Voinjama is cautioning health practitioners across Lofa County to take precautionary measures when treating suspected Ebola patients.

Miss Korto Suakollie, who survived the Ebola disease after spending three weeks at the Isolation Center in Foya, said Ebola is real and therefore health practitioners and the general public should take preventive measures outlined by the Health Ministry to combat it.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Miss Suakollie said it was true that people were dying from Ebola, and admonished Lofians and other residents not to doubt the existence of the disease.

Miss Suakollie spoke Sunday in Voinjama city upon her arrival from the Isolation Center in Foya, Lofa County.

Meanwhile, the Nursing Director at the Tellewoyan Memorial Hospital has expressed satisfaction over the survival of the nurse at the hospital from the deadly Ebola Virus.

Miss Genevieve Helter said the survival of Miss Suakollie has brought smiles on the faces of nurses and other staff of the hospital.

However, Miss Helter expressed regrets for the death of two health workers at the hospital from the deadly Ebola virus.

She then expressed condolences to the bereaved families and the hospital over the death of their loved ones and colleagues.
