By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent
TUBMANBURG, August 8 (LINA) - House Speaker Alex J. Tyler has condemned the attitude of some citizens of Momoh and Beasir Towns in Klay District, Bomi County against health workers who had gone to spray the town against the deadly Ebola virus.
Speaker Tyler, who himself hails from Bomi County, said stopping health workers from disinfecting towns where cases of Ebola had been reported is “unacceptable”.
Speaking to reporters Wednesday in Tubmanburg, Speaker Tyler said it was not wrong for health workers to disinfect towns where cases of the deadly Ebola virus have been reported because the exercise is intended to protect the lives of the citizens.
Speaker Tyler, who represents Klay District in the House of Representatives, said the fight to eradicate the deadly disease from Liberia requires the total support and involvement of all citizens of the county and Liberia as a whole.
He urged Bomi County citizens to always be on the safe side and help the government in its effort to eradicate the disease from the country.
