TOTAL Kakata Manager Urges Full Involvement Of Citizens In Ebola Fight

By Richard D. Baysah, Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, July 28 (LINA) -  The Manager of TOTAL Kakata says the fight against the deadly Ebola disease should not be left with Government  or health workers alone but should be with the involvement of every Liberian.

Mr. Sam Gorlue told the Liberia News Agency in Kakata Monday that the Ebola virus does not affect specific people, but all and as such all Liberians should help to contain it.

He made the call when he placed a set of had wash at the main entrance of his filling station. Mr. Golue said those who continue to refute the existence of the disease are seriously undermining efforts by health workers who continue to brave the storm despite the unavailability of personal protective gear for them at health facilities across the country.

Mr. Gorlue a trained physician sssistant by profession, said he is very much aware of the difficult circumstances under which Liberian health workers are performing their duties, noting that he will remain supportive of anything that will help contain the spread of the Ebola virus in Liberia.

Mr. Gorlue has meanwhile commended the Liberian Government for closing Liberia’s boarders adding, “this sends a very strong signal that containment of the deadly infectious disease that has made every Liberian nervous will be put under control”.

The Ebola outbreak in Liberia has left scores of medical practitioners dead, including one of Liberia’s renowned doctors, Samuel Brisbane.

The Ebola has affected seven of Liberia’s fifteen counties since March this year which, according to the Ministry of Health’s latest update, has claimed the lives of over one hundred persons.

Counties currently affected by the Ebola virus include Montserrado, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Nimba, Lofa, Bong and Margibi.
