UL To Offer Courses On Ebola, Other   Diseases

By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, September 26 (LINA) - The Dean of the T.J.R Faulkner College of Science and Technology at the University of Liberia, Dr. Ophelia Inez Weeks, says the institution is exploring avenues to offer courses on the Ebola disease and other infectious diseases in the country.

According to Dr. Weeks, as a manifestation of this commitment, the Science Department of the University of Liberia is currently conducting research to commence the process.

Dr. Weeks said they are currently carrying out awareness campaigns in villages and communities around the University’s four campuses, including Fendal, Capitol Hill, Sinje in Grand Cape Mount County and the Medical College in Congo Town.

She said as part of the campaign, they are educating people not to add more chlorine or to combine the chlorine, Clorox, Detergents and alcohol together in one bucket.

Dr. Weeks told the Liberia News Agency on the Fendal Campus that the massive Ebola awareness campaign was organized by the University.

She said using the chemicals together in one bucket for people to wash their hands is detrimental to their health, and stressed that if people continue to do so, they could develop cancer after the Ebola outbreak.

She commended authorities of the Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) for assisting the University’s Ebola awareness campaign Team with US$2,623 to enhance their campaign against the epidemic and appealed to all people of goodwill to emulate the example of the LTA.

 Dr. Weeks said the US$2,623is being used for materials, hiring of vehicles and Daily Sustenance Allowance (DSA) for the awareness team.
