The Director of Community Health Services of the Margibi County Health Team, Joseph Korhene, told a regular County Ebola Taskforce meeting in Kakata Friday that three confirmed, 11 probable and 17 suspected cases were recorded during the period.

He said in the previous week, O9ctober 22 to 28, a total of 39 cases were reported when updates were given during the Task Force meeting on October 31.

The current update, however, shows a decrease by eight in the number of affected persons compared to the previous week, he pointed out.

He called on residents of Margibi County to continue to adhere to preventive measures, warning that “complacency at this time of the Ebola fight is very dangerous as there are more cases in the county.”
