Nyenswah who also heads the Incident Management System for Ebola response made the statement at the Ministry of Information regular Thursday press conference held at the ministry in Monrovia.

He cited that the Government of Liberia in its resolve to eradicate Ebola from the country will continue to institute measures aimed at preventing the further spread of the virus.

Nyenswah said according to Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), community health volunteers who are to do temperature screening, should recommend for treatment anyone having a temperature reading above 38 degrees Centigrade or 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit.
