 WHO's Dr. Clement  Peter Declares Foya ETU  Free Of Ebola Patients
By Korboi K. Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, November 4 (LINA) -The World Health Organization (WHO) has disclosed that the Foya Ebola Treatment Center currently has no Ebola patient.

Making the disclosure Tuesday at an Ebola coordination meeting held at the Midwives Association Hall in Voinjama, the WHO-assigned doctor in Lofa County, Clement Peter, said for the past three weeks the center has not received any Ebola patients.

Dr. Peter has accordingly declared the Foya Center Ebola-free, but reminded citizens to continue to take preventive measures.

He also warned that cross-border trade among Liberians, Guineans and Sierra Leoneans as well as internal travel could cause Ebola to resurface in the area.

Dr. Peter hoped that the situation would remain stable and that there would not be a resurgence of the disease in the area.

The WHO official’s pronouncement was applauded by the gathering, with some participants seen shaking hands and hugging, according to the Liberia News Agency correspondent.

Foya registered Liberia’s first case of Ebola in early March, leading to the  spread of the disease  to many parts  of the country.
