GOL Lifts Quarantine On Two Towns In Margibi

By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 15 (LINA) - The Government of Liberia has with immediate effect lifted the quarantine imposed on two villages in Borlorla Township in Gibi District, Margibi County.

Gaygba Camp and Papa’s Village are located about 7.5 kilometers from the provincial capital Kakata.

Announcing the lifting of the quarantine on Saturday, Margibi County Inspector Tarr Sackie said after weeks of monitoring in close consultation with the Margibi County Health Team, it was deemed necessary to lift the quarantine imposed on these two villages.

He said the Ebola epidemic has brought untold suffering and economic setback to Liberia, and urged all to continue to adhere to preventive measures instituted by the Ministry of Health and partners so that Liberia can be declared Ebola free.

Earlier, in an overview of the Gaygba Camp quarantine, acting County Health Officer of Margibi County, Dr. Adolphus Yeaih, said this was the fourth time in four months quarantine was imposed in Margibi County.

Dr. Yeiah said the first was the quarantining of Lonfaye Town, while the second was a section of Dolo Town, and the last two being Gaygba Camp that was quarantined twice.
