28 Quarantined In Grand Cape Mount

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount Correspondent                                   

ROBERTSPORT, October 17 (LINA) – Twenty-eight residents of Bo-Waterside in Tewor District, Grand Cape Mount County have been quarantined for allegedly associating with a suspected Ebola patient who later died.

The Chairman of the Grand Cape Mount County Ebola Taskforce, Superintendent Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe, made the disclosure at a press conference held in Sinje recently.

Paasewe explained that quarantining of the 28 persons was in compliance with guidelines of the County Health Team (CHT) and in line with Ebola prevention regulations introduced by the Ministry of Health.

He, however, regretted that the County Health Team (CHT) and the Ebola Task Force are still quarantining people in their homes due to the lack of withholding centers in the county.

Paasewe pointed out that “in order to eradicate the virus in the county and society, suspected Ebola patients must be willing to be quarantined in their respective homes.”

Meanwhile, Paasewe has called on Muslims and Christians in Grand Cape Mount and other parts of the country to temporarily halt the traditional practice of bathing dead bodies before burial.

He urged citizens to report cases of death to the County Health Team for proper burial so as to avoid the further spread of the virus.
