TUBMANBURG, September 25 (LINA) – The total number of registered Ebola-related cases since the outbreak of the deadly virus in Bomi County in July hit 100 on Wednesday, September 24.
This, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) Technical Assistant to the Ebola Health Team in Bomi County, Dr. Richard Louise, is due to migration in the county by people with the Ebola Virus.
Making the disclosure on Wednesday in Tubmanburg, Bomi County when he spoke to reporters, Dr. Louise said the County Health Team (CHT) has put in place measures to adequately and effectively disseminate the preventive measures to people in the county.
He said the CHT is disseminating the preventive messages in all districts, chiefdoms, clans, towns and villages to help curb the spread of the disease.
Dr. Louise further disclosed that the tendency of people bathing dead bodies before burial and the assembly of members of the Poro and Sande societies are some of the challenges health workers are facing in the performance of their duties.
Dr. Louise said with the new measures put in place, residents of the county need to cooperate with the health workers and the Task Force to make their work to save lives easier.
