Pres. Sirleaf, National Legislature Meet On Ebola Decline

MONROVIA, November 4 (LINA) -President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and members of the National Legislature Tuesday met in the Conference Room of her Foreign Ministry Office to discuss the latest developments in the Ebola crisis.

According to an Executive Mansion Press Release, the meeting which was also attended by Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, received briefing on the Ebola epidemic from the head of the Incidence Management System and Assistant Health Minister for Preventive Services, Tolbert Nyenswah.

Minister Nyenswah reported lowering cases of Ebola infections in the country, but cautioned against complacency in observing preventive measures.

According to Minister Nyeswah, "one infected person or dead body can trigger a chain of transmission that could contaminate an entire community."

Minister Nyenswah thanked the government, partners and health workers for their leadership and efforts which are now yielding positive results.

During the meeting, President Sirleaf and the leadership of both Houses of the National Legislature resolved to further their consultations with various stakeholders, including international partners, to address the continued existence of the State of Emergency which expires on November 12, 2014.

President Sirleaf commended international partners, health workers and all Liberians for their contributions to the ongoing fight to eradicate the Ebola disease from the country.
