Buchanan Mayor Raps Ghanaians On Ebola

By: Johnson Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, August 21 (LINA) - Buchanan City Mayor Julia K. Bono has called on the Ghanaian community in the city to evaluate strangers before accepting them in their homes.

Speaking to a cross-section of Ghanaian governors and fishermen in the port city Tuesday, Mayor Bono also cautioned them to abide by measures put in place by the Ministry of Health, including washing hands and avoiding contacts with suspected Ebola carriers.

Bono stressed the need for the community to beware of strange people coming into their areas by sea or land, urging that all homes be furnished with buckets containing detergents at the entry for hand washing.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Bono advised the Ghanaian community to do away with the culture of hugging, shaking hands and eating together with their hands.

She also cautioned them to keep their eyes on the children and stop them visiting other homes so as not to infect the whole family with the Ebola virus.

Mayor Bono also urged them to keep their surroundings clean, saying “keep your areas clean in order to have a healthy environment so that this Ebola disease will not penetrate the congested communities in which you are living”.
