Zoe Wants Traditional Herbalists In Ebola Treatment

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, July 15 (LINA) - A Zoe (traditional leader) in Suehn Mecca District, Bomi County has recommended to government for traditional herbalists to be involved in the treatment of Ebola patients.

Varney Sando Gray said the government through the Ministry of Internal Affairs in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare should bring the traditional herbalists on board medical teams to treat the disease and see how they can contribute to halting the spread of the Ebola virus.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at the weekend, Gray noted that traditional medicines were used to treat most complicated and dangerous diseases prior to the coming to Africa of modern medicines administered by medical doctors.

Gray, who is also an elder in Suehn, added that the combined efforts of the herbalists and doctors would ensure immediate and amicable solution in treating the deadly disease that is slowly covering the country.

He said the disease that was discovered first in Lofa County has moved to Margibi, Grand Cape Mount, Montserrado and now to Bomi County, must jointly be dealt with by both parties to save lives.

“Traditional Herbalists are certificated by the Government of Liberia to treat diseases and therefore should be part of the medical team treating the Ebola patients,” Gray pointed out, adding that “the government should not overlook the Zoes and herbalists when it comes to the treatment of diseases.”
