Supt Dunor Urges Local Leaders To Use The Media In Ebola Sensitization

By Korboi K. Gbelewala, Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, July 30 (LINA)-Lofa County Superintendent George Dunor is urging local leaders in the county to make use of the local media in their communities to sensitize their citizens about the deadly Ebola virus.

He said it was mandatory for all Commissioners, Paramount, General, Sectional and Town Chiefs to go on local community radio stations in the county to educate their citizens in their local dialects about the dangers of the virus.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the Lofa County Superintendent’s call comes in the wake of constant calls from health practitioners in the county attributing the spread of the Ebola disease to denial and cultural practices on burial rites.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency via mobile phone recently, Superintendent Dunor said Ebola is real and called on citizens and residents of Lofa County to abide by the preventive measures outlined by the Health Ministry.

Superintendent Dunor has at the same time commended health workers in the county for the sacrificial services they are rendering to save the lives of citizens from the Ebola disease.
