Four New Ebola Cases Surface In Margibi

By Richard D Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, February 24 (LINA) - Margibi Community Health Services Director Joseph Korhene has disclosed the discovery of four new cases of Ebola in the county.

He told a recent county weekly Ebola Taskforce meeting in Kakata that the new cases can be traced to a lady who brought her sick husband from Monrovia to the county on February 4 this year.

Korhene told stakeholders at the meeting that the lady took her husband to a local clinic in Kakata upon their arrival into the county on a commercial motorbike and then to Gaygbah Town in Margibi County where he later died.

He disclosed that as a result of the incident, Gaygbah Town and nearby villages were quarantined by the County Health Team (CHT) and that the victims are currently receiving treatment at the Kakata Ebola Treatment Unit.

Meanwhile, Korhene has said the CHT extended the end of the quarantine of Gaygbah Town from February 28 to March 14, while the “fallout period” for the nearby villages will be March 30.

He pointed out that contact tracing, psycho-social counseling and social mobilization is being carried out by health authorities as a result of the situation that is unfolding in that part of the county.

According to him, the World Food Program is providing food to the quarantined people of Gaygbah Town and surrounding villages.
