No New Ebola Case In Margibi Over 28 Days

By Richard D Baysah, LINA Margibi Correspondent

KAKATA, January 12(LINA) - Margibi County Health Officer, Dr. Adolphus Yeiah, has revealed that there has been no new case of Ebola in Margibi County for the last 28 days.

He said, however, the recent quarantining of Lonfay Town in Gibi District was due to a dead body that was transported from Monrovia to the town at night on    December 17, 20 14.

Yeiah said the dead body was dressed in ordinary clothing like a regular passenger and strapped with seat belt in the front seat of the taxi, which evaded the checkpoints to smuggle the body into the county.

He said the County Health Team (CHT) through its partners received a tip-off but before they could reach the town the next morning, the people had already carried out an overnight wake-keeping and early burial.

He said since Lonfay Town was quarantined for 23 days, there has been no new case arising from the town, and although there have been two deaths in two nearby towns, the victims tested negative for the virus.

Dr. Yeiah said following the isolation of Lonfay Town, there are plans to lift the quarantine on the town as it continues to have no new case of the virus following the incident.

He said consultations are ongoing with partners to ensure that the quarantine on Lonfay Town is relaxed on or before January 30, 2015.
