Bong Ebola Holding Center Underway

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, September 7 (LINA) - Despite prolong controversy over the use of the David Bismarck Kuyon Sports Stadium as a holding center for suspected Ebola patients or people who come into contact with them, construction work has begun at the site.

Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy made the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency correspondent in an interview Sunday morning.

She noted that the stadium is the county’s most convenient due the low cost to transform it into a holding center and the perfect security it has with a double fence and high walls.

Superintendent Mappy lauded Vice President Joseph N. Boakai and all who help in diffusing notions that the facility is not meant for such purpose and that it will cause more harm than good if used for holding of contact and suspected.

She said works at the stadium is progressing with the help government, UNICEF and other well-meaning Liberians and hoped that the center all soon be completed.

Meanwhile the Bong County Health Team has reported an increase in the number of contacts as confirm and suspected cases continued to remain in communities and houses.

According to Dr. Samson K. Arzoaquoi, once cases continue to remain in houses and communities, the county’s case load will continue to rise as avoiding contact in the Liberian society is nearly impossible.

He therefore emphasizes the need for quick completion of all Ebola-related centers to rescue the situation.
