Ex-US Pres. Carter Urges Liberians To Unite In Ebola Fight

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, October 4 (LINA) - Former US President Jimmy Carter has said Liberians should form a united and common front against the deadly Ebola virus to eradicate the disease and ensure safety in the country.

“The Safety of Liberia and all Ebola-affected countries is safety of the whole world,” Carter said via telephone Friday when he addressed the third day of a four-day consultative meeting of traditional chiefs and elders held under the auspices of the Carter Center in Gbarnga, Bong County.

The former US president said there is a need to avoid vices that promote the spread of the Ebola virus and join government fight the disease.

Carter named hiding sick people, denial and burial of Ebola bodies and the lack of adherence to preventive medical measures as practices that must be stopped if the disease must be eradicated.

Targeting over 120 traditional chiefs and elders from the 15 political sub-divisions of Liberia, Carter Center is soliciting suggestion as to how chiefs and elders can be supported to eradicate the killer disease from the country.

The Center is also partnering with National Government through several ministries, including Internal Affairs, Health, and Information and is also lending support to several institutions, organizations as well as community radio stations.
