Two-Day Ebola Awareness Workshop Ends In Harper
By John N. Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, October 21 (LINA) - A two-day Ebola awareness workshop for five southeastern counties has ended in Harper, Maryland County with a call on Liberians to use the Ebola crisis to unite and move their country forward.

The workshop, which was organized by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), brought together 50 participants and County
Health Teams from Sinoe, Grand Kru, Maryland, River Gee and Grand Gedeh counties.

Speaking during the closing session, Dr. Francis Kateh, Chief Medical Officer of the Jackson F. Doe Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County, said the fight against the disease should not be fragmented but rather involve all Liberians and partners.

Dr, Karteh, who also served as the Chief Facilitator of the workshop, noted that “since the war did not unite Liberians, let Ebola unite us and allow us to fight as a nation to get rid of the virus.”

He then commended the county health teams of the region for their efforts in saving lives against the virus, and urged them to intensify their fight against the disease when they return to their respective counties.

For her part, Dr. Odell Kumeh, County Health Officer for Maryland, commended the participants for the turnout and encouraged them to work harder to save lives during “this national battle against Ebola.”
