Traditional Leader Warns Against Denial Of Ebola

By Wellington Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, August 15 (LINA) -The Chairman of the Nimba County Chapter of the Traditional Council of Liberia, Chief Peter Barlon, has warned residents to desist from disputing the existence of the Ebola disease in Liberia.

He said it has come to the knowledge of the Chiefs' Council of Nimba that some uninformed citizens are in the habit of influencing family members to violate precautionary measures outlined by the government against spread of the Ebola virus.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency Wednesday, Chief Barlon also warned against violating the dictates of the state of emergency.

The chief is, meanwhile, calling on citizens to report people influencing family members not to adhere to measures outlined by the health ministry to avoid the spread of the deadly Ebola Virus.
