Global Communities To Set Up Surveillance Teams At Border

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, January 23 (LINA) – Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy has welcomed plans by Global Communities to set up surveillance teams along the Guinea-Liberia border.

She said the setting up of the teams in towns and villages along the border will further enhance existing gains made against the spread of the Ebola virus.

Earlier, Global Communities Country Director Pieter Devries said the teams will comprise local authorities from the Ministry of Internal Affairs residing in towns and villages who will monitor the movement of people and report issues of illegal entry.

Supt. Mappy and Devries made the statements at a one-day stakeholders meeting held in Gbarnga on Thursday.

Devries said the deployment of surveillance team along the border is intended to prevent the resurgence of the disease in the country, adding “The deployment of a surveillance team is cardinal due to  the porous borders.”  

Global Communities has for the past four months supported Bong, Lofa and Nimba counties in fighting the Ebola disease through donation of Ebola preventive materials, contact tracing and surveillance.
