Grand Gedeh Records First Ebola Case
By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, September 25 (LINA) - A 35-year-old man in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County, has tested Ebola positive, making it the first case in the county since the outbreak of the disease in the country in March.

The man, whose name is being withheld by the Liberia News Agency, was showing signs and symptoms of the disease when the Grand Gedeh County
Health Team (CHT) picked him up from the Zwedru Central Market last Friday.

In a brief interview with the Liberia News Agency Wednesday, the Coordinator of the CHT, Netus Nowena, said the man migrated from Ganta,
Nimba County to Grand Gedeh County following the death of nine of his family members from the disease early this month.

According to Nowena, the health team was taking the man to Gbarnga, Bong County for treatment when they observed that he was showing signs and symptoms of the virus, adding that he later tested positive for the disease.

Meanwhile, according to Nowena, the 36 people who were at the holding center for 21 days of observation have been released without any signs
or symptoms of Ebola.
