Bomi Launches Ebola Campaign
By: David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, August 21 (LINA) - Bomi County authorities have launched an awareness campaign to eradicate the Ebola virus from the county.

Speaking at the launch Monday, the Coordinator of the Bomi County Task Force, Superintendent Samuel Brown, called on the people of the county to adhere to the preventive measures put in place by the Ministry of Health.

Brown said the County Administration has trained 145 volunteers who will spread the Ebola awareness messages in the county.

He said the issues of the volunteers are two-fold, helping to save lives by disseminating the awareness messages and providing short-term jobs for the young people to enable them continue their education when schools reopen.

Superintendent Brown stressed the need for cooperation and collaboration among all citizens, if Ebola is to be kicked out of the county.

He said the county administration will pay the volunteers from the fund provided by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

He said the campaign will cover all the districts of the county, including Suehn- Mecca, Klay, Senjeh and Dewein.

Superintendent Brown said the Task Force will also engage the Christian, Muslim and business communities to be part of the activities.

He informed the people that the Liberian Government hospital in the county has reopened to the public.

Meanwhile, Bomi County authorities have launched a clean-up campaign as part of measures to contain the Ebola virus.
