Lawmaker Cautions Against Ebola Denial

By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA, September 16 (LINA) - Montserrado County Representative Thomas Fallah has called on members of District #5 to refrain from living in denial of the existence of the Ebola virus in Liberia.

He observed that a major factor responsible for the rapid spread of the disease is the refusal of some Liberians to accept that the virus is in the country, thereby violating preventive measures put in place by authorities of the Ministry of Health.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Representative Fallah made the statement Sunday, when he launched an Ebola Task Force in the district which he represents in the House..

Fallah emphasized that the existence of the Ebola virus in Liberia is real and that this must claim the attention of all citizens, noting that the District#5 Task Force will work alongside the National Ebola Task Force in disseminating anti-Ebola messages in the district.

He called on residents of the district to abide bypreventive measures put in place by the Ministry of Health, adding, “With this you will prevent the spread of the virus in the district.”

Meanwhile, Montserrado County Senator Geraldine Doe Sheriff and Superintendent Florence Brandy, who attended the occasion, have called on Liberians, especially residents of Montserrado County, to serve as ambassadors in the fight against the Ebola virus.

They said all Liberians must be involved in the fight against the Ebola disease irrespective of political affiliation, noting that the “Ebola virus knows no borders.”
