UNICEF Official Urges Robust Action To Contain Ebola

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, September 27 (LINA) - The Co-Chair of the National Social Mobilization Sub-Committee on Ebola has called for a more robust approach to the dissemination of anti-Ebola messages for greater impact and results.

Co-Chair Adolphus Scott, who is also Communication Specialist for Development at the U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF), noted that better results from the messages will lead to the eradication of Ebola from Liberia.

Scott made the statement Friday at a one-day intensive communication dissemination seminar on Ebola prevention for more than 50 members of civil society organizations and local and international partners of the Social Mobilization Sub-Committee to contain the spread of Ebola in Liberia.

He indicated that community members have a crucial role to play to break the chain of transmission of the deadly virus and to ensure that all preventive measures are adhered to by community dwellers.

He noted that if community dwellers are not given the relevant preventive messages, it would be difficult to stop the epidemic from spreading which, he noted, will make it difficult to eradicate the disease soon.

 Scott reiterated the warning against people touching their sick relatives without protection which, he observed, has led to more infections and the spread of the virus across the nation. 

This, he added, has increased the infection rate and the rapid spread of the deadly disease in several communities.
