Ambassador Martinez Donates Drugs To Ebola Fight

MONROVIA, September 17 (LINA) - Friends of Liberia in the Dominican Republic and Caribbean, led by Ambassador Raphael Martinez, has donated an assortment of drugs to Liberia to assist with the fight against the Ebola virus.

According to a Foreign Ministry press release issued Wednesday, Liberia’s former Ambassador to the Court of St. James, Wesley Momo Johnson, now Chief Executive Officer of Access Liberia Incorporated, a Liberian-owned consultant firm, made the donation on behalf of the group at the Foreign Ministry.

He said the drugs represent a form of treatment that is effective for viral infection in immune-competent and immune-compromised patients with Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers such as Ebola.

The release said that with the prescribed dosage, the treatment best application and result is as a preventative measure that acts as an antigen without inducing the disease, thereby, providing an immunity prior to exposure to Ebola.

The Foreign Ministry release further noted that the treatment works as an anti-viral that inhibits the process of the viral messenger RNA granulation, and further inhibits the activity of RNA and DNA polymerase in the Ebola virus.    

Accepting the donation of drugs on behalf of the Government of Liberia, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Sylvester Grigsby, thanked Ambassador Johnson for the assistance to Liberia and asked him to convey to Ambassador Raphael Martinez and Friends of Liberia in the Caribbean, that the Liberian people are extremely grateful for the donation.

Minister Grigsby said the drugs came at a critical time, when the country and its people are grappling with the Ebola virus which has claimed the lives of hundreds of Liberians.
