Liberians Urged Not To Neglect Anti-Ebola Practices

By Emmanuel D. Monday/ LINA Lofa County Correspondent

GBARPOLU, June 13 (LINA) – Gbarpolu County Red Cross Health Officer, Fomba V. Karvah, has reminded Liberians that though the country is declared Ebola free, they must continue the hand-washing exercise to avoid diseases.

He made the statement when he presented anti-Ebola materials Friday to the citizens of three towns in Gbarpolu County on behalf of the Red Cross, including buckets and soap.

The three towns are Madina, Lowoman and Totoquelle situated within Bopolu District.

He said Liberians can be protected if citizens of the county continue to sensitize each other about the deadly past of Ebola, which left thousands of citizens dead.

Receiving the materials, the General Town Chief of Madina, Mr. Momo S. Sirleaf, expressed gratitude to the Red Cross and assured that the citizens will continue to sensitize their colleagues on how everyone can continue to stay safe.

Madina received 80 hand-washing buckets with bath soap, Lowoma, 60 buckets with soap, and Totoquelle, 100 buckets and soap.

It was reported in March 2014 that Ebola entered Liberia in Foya, Lofa County from neighboring Guinea.
