Catholic Bishop Opts For Post-Ebola Awareness Strategy
By Prince Nagbe/LINA

MONROVIA, December 17 (LINA) –The Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Cape Palmas, the Most Rev. Andrew Karnley, is urging the government to devise a long-term mobilization and awareness strategy after Liberia is declared Ebola free.

Bishop Karnley who cited an old adage that “Prevention is better than Cure”, noted that this method of prevention is in continuation of the awareness exercise which, according to him, should not be abandoned or ignored even in the post-Ebola era.

In his Pastoral Letter on the topic   “The Outbreak of The Ebola Virus in The Country” dated Monday, December 15, 2014, the Catholic prelate called on Liberians to spare no effort in mobilizing and creating awareness about the danger of the Ebola virus in order to eradicate it.

Karnley stressed that people need to be informed about the DOs and DON’Ts of the virus and that they should challenge and expose the myth and state of denial, if the fight against the virus must succeed.

Meanwhile, Bishop Karnley has noted that the training of health workers and caregivers in the prevention and treatment of the virus should be given serious attention, while at the same time providing them the needed equipment and other medical logistics to make them effective and efficient in the discharge of their duties.

The Catholic Bishop admonished Liberians not to allow fear and anxiety caused by the virus to make them discriminate against each other, noting that instead, Liberians should show compassion and understanding towards those who have fallen prey to the deadly virus.
