By Korboi K. Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

MONROVIA, March 28 (LINA) - A two-day Border Community Ebola Training Workshop aimed at sustaining the zero Ebola infection rate in Lofa County has ended in the provincial capital Voinjama.

The training was a joint initiative of the U.N. Mission in Liberia, U.N. Children’s Fund, World Health Organization and the U.S-based Centers for Disease Control in collaboration with Liberia’s Ministry of Health.

According to the Liberia News Agency, more than 200 persons from across Lofa County, including joint security personnel, district and township commissioners, religious, youth and women organizations and civil society groups participated in the training.

Speaking at the opening of the workshop, a health ministry official, Boima Tamba, said the workshop was intended to stop the resurgence of Ebola in the county for the second time.

Tamba stressed that the knowledge acquired from the training could help save the lives of citizens of the county.

Lofa County, which shares common borders with Guinea and Sierra Leone, was initially considered the epicenter of the Ebola virus at the onset of its outbreak in Liberia.

In remarks on behalf of the participants at the closing ceremony Thursday, Quadou Gboni District Paramount Chief Musa Kamara thanked the sponsors for the training and the concern shown for the Liberia in the fight against the Ebola disease, which claimed thousands of lives in the country.
