Bong Marketers Nudged To Follow Ebola Measures

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, August 3 (LINA) - The Bong County branch of the Liberia Marketing Association (LMA) is calling on marketers to abide by the preventive measures outlined by the Ministry of Health to contain the deadly Ebola virus.

Bong County LMA Superintendent Viola Cooper said adherence to the regulations will help save lives, noting that violation of these measures will further increase the death rate from the disease in the country.

She said the closure of the Forquelleh, Belefenai and Gbalatuah markets by Government should not be seen as measures intended to limit them from doing business, but rather to safeguard their lives.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency over the weekend, Madam Cooper reminded marketers of the moratorium placed on the sale of bush meat and threatened to confiscate any bush meat seen in the markets.

Superintendent Cooper also warned marketers against doubting the existence of the killer virus and to carefully make use of other market facilities in the county to do business.

Meanwhile, in support of the closure mandate, a team from the Bong County detachment of the Liberia National Police (LNP) on Saturday visited the Belefenai and other markets with the aim of enforcing government’s regulations.

As part of measures to contain the spread of the virus, Government recently ordered the closure of all markets on the country’s borders with Guinea and Sierra until otherwise ordered.
