Forestry Institute  Boss Decries Unsafe Burial
By David Pamas Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, December 5 (LINA) – The Executive Director of the Forestry Training Institute (FTI), the national forestry training center,  in Tubmanburg, has frowned on the manner in which Ebola victims are being  buried in the county.

Mr. G. Garvoie Kardoh noted that burying Ebola victims six feet or less than six feet deep, as has been done by citizens across the county, suggests that Liberians are not prepared to eradicate the disease from the country.

He made the comment recently at the Soul Winning Ministry in Tubmanburg when he was honored and certificated by the church for his humanitarian services in the fight against the Ebola Virus in the
county.

The FTI official said the continued violations of Ebola preventive measures by citizens of the county demonstrates that they are  not ready to eradicate the virus, adding, “I see no reason why Liberians
should rejoice now because Ebola is still here and is killing our people.”

Kardoh indicated that at this stage in the fight against the epidemic, Liberians must demonstrate their support to the health sector and the international community by observing the Ebola preventive measures.

Meanwhile, he has called on health authorities to institute additional measures in order to eradicate the virus from the country.
