Bomi Citizens Rejoice Over Liberia Ebola Free Declaration

By David Pamas Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, May 12 (LINA) – Citizens of Bomi County on Monday marched through the principal streets of Tubmanburg  singing praises to God to celebrate Liberia's declaration and official certification by the World Health Organization as an Ebola free nation.

The citizens, most of whom carried placards with inscriptions such as “Ebola Go and Never to Return to Liberia, “No More Ebola”, thanked President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf , the Incident Management Team, international community and the County Health Team for breaking the transmission chain of Ebola.

Speaking at the official program to celebrate the declaration at the Liberia Government Hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, Superintendent Samuel Brown attributed the victory to the collective efforts of the National Ebola Taskforce headed by President Sirleaf.

Superintendent Brown also lauded the United States and Chinese governments as well as other friendly governments for their level of support which, he noted, was “very vital to Liberia’s fight against the Ebola virus.”

Brown, who is also the Coordinator of the Bomi County Ebola Taskforce, however, told the jubilant crowd that though the disease has finally been eradicated, the people of Bomi should remain cautious and abide by all the preventive measures.

He disclosed that the triage center that is situated at the border point that links Grand Cape Mount, Gbarpolu and Bomi Counties as well as the one in Sackie Town in Senjeh District will remain intact to monitor the movements of the people.
