VOINJAMA, November 19 (LINA) - The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Coordinator in Lofa County, Stephen Gibson, has warned that unless movements across borders are halted, Lofa County might revert to the June, July and August Ebola experience that claimed the lives of many people in the county.
The Lofa County EPA boss observed that some residents of Lofa County are still involved in trans-border business activities in neighboring Guinea.
Speaking recently during the regular weekly Ebola coordination meeting, the EPA Coordinator said during the weekend some vehicles and motorcycles were seen with passengers leaving Voinjama for neighboring Guinea.
He cautioned that the Ebola fight should not be left with the Lofa County Health Team (CHT), the government and partners alone, noting that every resident of Lofa County should be involved to eradicate Ebola from the country.
“Let us be proactive in this Ebola fight,” Gibson emphasized.
