By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, September 16 (LINA) -The President of the National Teachers’ Association of Liberia (NTAL), Ellen Fartu Varfley, says the involvement of teachers in the fight against the Ebola Virus is crucial to the success of the campaign.

Madam Varfley is therefore calling on all teachers nationwide to “set an ambush” by observing all hygienic rules and preventive measures to kick the Ebola disease out of Liberia.

The Liberia News Agency (LINA) reports that she made the statement Tuesday when the NTAL officially launched its Ebola Awareness Campaign in Monrovia under the theme: ‘Together, We Say To Ebola-Go And Never To Return (NTR)’.

“Today, as we launch this symbolic sensitization, we call on all of our branches in the 15 counties to put their energies together proactively to kick out this deadly and satanic disease,” Varfley added.

At the same time, the NTAL has divided the country into six zones in a bid to effectively carry out its Ebola awareness campaign.

Zone 1 comprises Grand Cape Mount, Gbarpolu and Bomi Counties, while Zone 2 groups Montserrado and Grand Bassa, and Zone Three Margibi, Bong and Nimba counties.

Zone 4 comprises only Lofa and River Cess and Sinoe make up Zone 5, while Zone 6 is made up of Grand Gedeh, River Gee, Maryland and Grand Kru counties.

In remarks, Assistant Education Minister for Early Childhood Education, Felicia Doe-Somah, commended the NTAL for the initiative, and assured the Education Ministry’s support in the endeavor.

Doe Somah noted that consolidated efforts are needed to combat the Ebola Virus out of the country.
