By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, August 18 (LINA) -The Special Representative of the UN Secretary General in Liberia, Karin Landgren, says the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) attaches great importance to the fight against the spread of the Ebola disease.

Madame Landgren gave the assurance Monday in Sinje Town, Grand Cape Mount County, at a meeting she held with the county administration and the County Health Team (CHT) on the prevention of the disease in the county.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Madame Landgren said the outbreak of the disease has claimed the attention of UNMIL, saying they are designing strategies that will buttress government's effort in the fight against the disease.

She said the eradication of Ebola in the country needs the collective efforts of the government and local and international partners.

The UN Special Representative lauded the Grand Cape Mount County Health Team and the leadership of the county for formulating series of Ebola eradication plans for the county.

Earlier, County Superintendent Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe and the CHT head, Dr. Julius Garbo, expressed appreciation to Madame Landgren for her visit to the county.

The two officials outlined constraints and progress made in the county since the outbreak of the disease in early March.

They cited the setting up of several health teams in towns and villages to educate the people on the prevention of Ebola in the county.

Superintendent Paasewe and Dr.Grabo said there was a dire need to set up an Ebola Treatment Center in the county to avoid transporting patients to Monrovia and other parts of the country.
