By David Pamas Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, November 27 (LINA) – The Bomi County Health Team (CHT) in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC)  has launched a house-to-house search for sick people in communities in the county.

The acting Health Officer of Bomi County, Dr. Gorbee Logan, disclosed that the exercise launched Wednesday is part of measures to contain the further spread of the Ebola disease in the county.

Dr. Logan said sick people discovered during the exercise will be taken to medical facilities for further examination and treatment as a means of eradicating the Ebola virus from the county.

He said the C.D.C will be in Suehn Mecca and Dewein Districts, while the Bomi CHT along with some local government officials will be in Klay District.

According to Dr. Logan, the attention of local health workers, the C.D.C and World Health Organization Technical Assistants have been drawn to Suehn Mecca, Klay and Dewein Districts where pockets of new cases are still being reported.

He said Senjeh District, which hosts Tubmanburg City, has not reported any new Ebola cases for two months now.

According to Logan, citizens of Bomi have welcomed the decision by the county health team and partners to launch the house-to-house search.

He did not say how long the search will last.
