ROBERTSPORT, December 17 (LINA)-Grand Cape Mount County Superintendent Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe has urged citizens of the county to adhere to Ebola preventive measures outlined by health authorities to avoid further spread of the virus.
According to the Liberia News Agency, Superintendent Paasewe sounded the warning on Tuesday in Robertspoprt during the official opening of a two-day Ebola sensitization and awareness campaign workshop organized by the African Union (AU) in collaboration with the Angie Brooks International Center.
Superintendent Paasewe said Ebola cannot be kicked out of the county and Liberia, when citizens are refusing to abide by Ebola preventive measures outlined by health authorities.
He said it was regrettable to note that while the virus is rapidly reducing in more than 13 counties, Cape Mount is still reporting new cases on a daily basis.
Imam Paasewe said despite the numerous Ebola prevention awareness campaigns being conducted by the County Health Team (CHT) and partners, the citizens are not fully adhering to the preventive measures.
Earlier, AU Psychosocial Officer, Pamella Adong and Angie Brooks International Center Youth Representative Mohammed Swaray, said failure of the citizens to abide by the preventive measures could further spread the virus in the county.
Madame Adong and Swaray admonished the citizens to refrain from denial of the disease, secret burials and the traditional bathing of dead bodies to contain the spread of the virus.
