Brown: “No need to Panic Over Newest Ebola Outbreak”

By Winnie Dixon, LINA

MONROVIA, March 23 (LINA) - Information Minister Lewis Brown has called on Liberians not to panic over news of the latest Ebola outbreak.

He said the development should rather re-awaken and re-energize Liberians to curtail further spread of the disease.

“We are discouraged but not without hope, as we are following the signs and you can rest assured that government with your support, can once again defeat this dreaded disease,” he said.

He made the call Monday when he appeared on the Truth 96.1 FM morning show.

“The government is engaged with the process, as well as bringing the full component of all of its capacities to thoroughly deal with the newest outbreak and you can be reassured of our fullest commitment,” Brown assured.

According to the Information Ministry boss, the Government will spend every last second working to deliver on the full eradication of the disease from the country.

He disclosed that contact tracing and surveillance teams have moved into the affected community because the government is not taking lightly the safety, livelihood, well-being and survival of its citizens.

Barely a week after the Minister’s pronouncement that 15 days were left for the World Health Organization to declare Liberia Ebola free, the country experienced a setback with a new outbreak on Friday, March 20.
