Nimba Taskforce Introduces Ebola Hotlines

By Wellington Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, August 11 (LINA) -The Nimba County Taskforce on Ebola has launched hotlines to help the public report cases of the deadly virus.

The Assistant Superintendent for Development and spokesman of the Nimba Taskforce, Teeko Tozay Yorlay, told the Liberia News Agency over the weekend that communities need to get involved in combating the disease.

He urged individuals and families to use the hotlines to report cases bearing the signs and symptoms of Ebola. 

The Assistant Superintendent also wants sick strangers or visitors hidden by family members in any community around the county to be reported to the county health team through the hotlines.

According to Mr. Yorlay, the four hotlines are monitored by members and officials of the Nimba Taskforce against the deadly Ebola virus.

In another development, the Representative of District # 2, Prince Tokpah, in collaboration with a local radio station, Radio Sehnwai FM 97.9, over the weekend launched an awareness campaign against the Ebola virus in the district.

They visited several communities to spread the anti-Ebola message, including Sehgeh, Zolowee, Mankinto, Sehkinpa, and Sanniquellie, the provi9ncial capital.

Representative Tokpah said the process will continue in other towns and villages until Liberia is declared Ebola free.

The theme of his message is: “Stop Ebola, don’t spread it; the virus is real, it is here, and can kill.”

Meanwhile, the Coordinator of the Community Health Department of the Nimba County Health Team, C. Paul Yanzee, has said that as of August 7, there were eight Ebola deaths in the county, with five suspected and six confirmed cases.
