Lawmaker Cautions Ebola Suspects Against Encamping At Home; Breaks Ground For Ebola Withholding Center

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, October 11 (LINA)-Grand Cape Mount County Representative Mambu Sonii has observed that the absence of an Ebola Withholding Center in Garwula District has left suspected Ebola patients to keep themselves in their various homes.

He said this has the propensity to spread of the virus in the county.

Rep. Sonii made the observation recently when he broke ground for the construction of a 10-bedroom Ebola Withholding Center in Sinje Town, Garwula District, Grand Cape Mount County.

Neither the cost of the project nor when it would start was readily disclosed, but according to the Liberia News Agency, it will be jointly sponsored by the Government of Liberia and the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).

Sonii said when constructed, patients will be kept at the center pending treatment instead of transporting them to Monrovia and other parts of the country.

The lawmaker has meanwhile admonished citizens to adhere to measures put in place by the ministry of health to contain the chain of transmission of the disease.

Earlier, the County Superintendent, Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe, urged citizens of the county to refrain from practices that have the tendency to undermine the construction of the project when it starts.
