By Johnson Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

CESTOS CITY, September 26 (LINA) - The Head of UNMIL Field Office in Rivercess County, Dr. Wesley Bonati Natana Abraham, has presented US$900 and several items to the County Ebola Response Taskforce to support the holding center for suspected Ebola patients in the county.

Items presented are six motorbikes, 150 gallons of gasoline, 40 mattresses, 40 buckets, 57 beddings, 80 cooking pots, 288 rolls of tissue, 48 cans of mosquito spray, 96 bottles of Dettol, two 2.5 KVA generators and 72 bottles of chloride, according to the Liberia News Agency.

Making the presentation at the Rivercess administrative building in Cestos City Thursday, Abraham said the money is to cover one month incentives payment for 18 volunteers that are carrying out awareness campaign, contact tracing, monitoring and reporting on Ebola.

Abraham added that the items are UNMIL’s contribution to Government of Liberia’s efforts to eradicate Ebola from the country.

He hoped that the items would be used for their intended purposes in order to prevent the spread of the virus in the county.

“Ebola is real, Ebola is deadly, Ebola has no cure, Ebola is here, but Ebola can be prevented if we cooperate with the Taskforce and listen to all the advice being given by health workers,” Abraham said.

Receiving the items on behalf of the Taskforce, Dr. Wilmot L. Smith, Chief Health Officer of the county and member of the Taskforce, lauded efforts by UNMIL in the prevention and eradication of the Ebola virus and promised that all items donated will be used for its intended purposes.
