Three Quarantined Ebola Suspects Released In Gbarpolu

By Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU, September 7 (LINA) -Three Ebola suspects quarantined in Totoquelle Town, Gbarpolu County have been released by the County Ebola Task Force.

Joseph Kamara, Musa Kamara and Omaru Tulay, quarantined from August 13 to September 4, 2014, were released September 5 after the task force determined they were never infected with virus, according to the Liberia News Agency.

The Co-Chairman of the Gbarpolu County Ebola Task Force, Dr. Anthony Tucker, said that quarantining the trio was in line with the 21-day period set to observe those suspected of the disease.

Tucker noted that once it was established during the observation period that the three people did not have Ebola, it was only necessary to readmit them into the society.

He expressed gratitude to citizens of the town for their cooperation and understanding during the period that the three were quarantined.

He then admonished the freed man to serve as ambassadors for Ebola in the county by explaining their individual experiences to other citizens when they were being quarantined.

He challenged citizens of the town to regularly go to the clinic for medical treatment, adding that that is the only way they will be able to defeat the deadly Ebola disease.

Responding on behalf of the town, Chief Elder Siaka Gbessey said that they were pleased that the men were Ebola free, and thanked the Task Force for the support.

One of the released, old man Joseph Kamara, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said he was glad that they were Ebola free and promised to spread their experience with others in different parts of the county.
