Pres. Sirleaf Commends Liberians, Partners For Gains Made In Ebola Fight

MONROVIA, January 1 (LINA)-The Liberian leader is commending the community leaders, Christian and Muslim Community, civil society and especially healthcare workers who have been on the frontline with a passionate endurance to the Ebola fight.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf also thanked bilateral and multilateral partners whose support has made the progress possible. She made the assertion in a nationwide address on the occasion of the beginning of the New Year, wishing all compatriots a happy and healthy 2015.

Despite the progress however, she informed the nation that within the last 21 days health authorities have highlighted 131 new cases of the disease. “There are 96 confirmed cases with laboratory tests; 58 cases in Montserrado, 20 in Grand Cape Mount, where there is a resurgence and two (2) in Nimba where there previously had not been a case for 62 days,” she pointed out.

The release said with this information, President Sirleaf reminded Liberians that Ebola is still among us. “As a result, until and unless we get to zero, we must maintain the same level of intense attention, caution and prevention practices that helped to get us where we are today.

“We must continue to shout loudly through voice and action that Ebola must go because getting rid of Ebola is everybody’s business as government intensifies efforts to move from treatment to prevention; by focusing on the rebuilding and strengthening of our healthcare system through training, better compensation for doctors and healthcare Workers; through better equipped health facilities and improved road condition and access to these facilities,” she warned.
