Senator Concerned About Access To Southeast
By Winnie Dixon (Intern)

MONROVIA, August 21 (LINA) - Maryland County Senator Dan Morias has expressed concern about the gradual cutting off of the Southeast from the rest of the country due to “security and logistical blockades” to fight the Ebola disease.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Senator Morias named Ganta in Nimba and Harper in Maryland counties as areas where travelling has become “a huge burden.”

“Travel to these areas has become more unbearable due to official roadblocks manned by state security forces and unofficial ones patrolled by villagers in some counties,” Morias noted.

He made the statement Tuesday during the Senate regular session when he briefed the plenary about his recent trip to the southeastern region of the country.

He highlighted the “deplorable condition of roads” , noting that the trip from Ganta in Nimba County to Harper, Maryland County, which took just one day, now lasts for four days, even for persons with four-wheel drive vehicles.

Morias wondered about the possibility of the National Task Force on Ebola promptly reaching those areas when the need arises.

He said while he welcomes all efforts to protect the Southeast from the Ebola spread, it would be more prudent were the task force to put in place a mechanism to ensure easy travel of people declared healthy.

He pointed out that in the absence of such mechanism, persons who are infected might still be able to enter the uninfected zone, simply by exercising patience.
