Educator Says Denial Hurting Efforts To Curb Ebola

By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA, September 11(LINA) -The Director-General of the National Commission on Higher Education (NCHE), Dr. Michael Slawon, has observed that continuous denial of the existence of Ebola is hampering government’s efforts to contain the disease.

He stressed that the only way to rid the country of the Ebola virus is for all Liberians to agree that the virus exists and collectively join the fight to contain it, adding, “Ebola is real and it is killing Liberians on a daily basis.”

Dr. Slawon said Liberians must then begin to abide by preventive measures announced by the Ministry of Health and international partners if Ebola must be wiped out of Liberia.

Dr. Slawon made the observation Wednesday when he distributed several anti-Ebola materials, including buckets, cartons of chlorine, Clorox, sanitizers and other disinfectants to the Kpelleh Town Community in Paynesville.

According to Dr. Slawion, the distribution represents the Commission’s way of identifying with residents of the Community in the ongoing fight against the Ebola virus.

He also called on religious leaders in the country to sensitize their congregations on the danger of the disease and safety measures, noting, “By this, they would immensely be contributing to the fight against the virus.”
