SANNIQUELLIE, June 24 (LINA) -  The Head of Incident Management System (IMS) at the Ministry of Health, Deputy Minister Tolbert Nyenswah, has called on local authorities and the County Health Team of Nimba to strengthen border surveillance to curb recurrence of Ebola virus in that part of Liberia.

Minister Nyenswah made the statement Wednesday, 24 June, at the Tubman Hall in Sanniquellie at the end of a two-day celebration marking the Historic End of Ebola Outbreak in the County.

 Nyenswah restated the freedom of Liberia from the Ebola Virus to the citizens of the county, but cautioned the province to remain watchful over its borders.

 He noted that everyone must remain alert and sensitive so long as neighboring Guinea and Sierra Leone are still reporting cases of the killer virus.

 The Minister urged the locals to report health-related cases to nearby health facility.

 According to him, Nimba being one of the Lassa fever belt in West Africa needs severe surveillance against related diseases.

 On 24 June, the local authorities of Nimba, supported by partners, organized a program “Celebrating the End of Ebola Outbreak in Nimba” held under the theme; “Remaining Vigilant in EBOLA FREE LIBERIA”.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared Liberia Ebola-free on May 9 after 14 months of being plagued by the Ebola scourge, killing some 4,000 Liberians.
