Brown Calls For Regional Approach To Eradicate Ebola

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, March 8 (LINA) - Information Minister Lewis Brown has called for regional approach to eradicate Ebola from the three West African countries hit by the deadly disease.

He said the epidemic, which hit Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea hardest, is not just a Mano River basin problem, but a global threat to mankind.

The Liberian Information Minister made the statement in a recent interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation during which he commented on the gains Liberia has made to eradicate the deadly virus from the country.

Brown stated that the people of the Mano River basin are consciously optimistic that Ebola can be eliminated with the last Ebola patient being discharged from the Chinese-run Ebola Treatment Unit on Thursday in Paynesville outside Monrovia.

He indicated that there are still 102 people under contact tracing, adding that if Liberians can keep the momentum going through empowering the various communities to ensure that all preventive measures are observed, Ebola will be totally eradicated.

Brown emphasized that the way to continue to fight the Ebola virus is to keep surveillance strong enough and have the public health system work to be able to deal with it.

He stressed that to rapidly contain the Ebola virus MRU member countries should continue to empower their communities and build effective public health systems to eradicate this disease from region.
