SANNIQUELLIE, July 19 (LINA) - Following an emergency Ebola meeting, Nimba County has reorganized its Ebola Task Force with more focus on case finding and social mobilization to resist the recurrence of the Ebola virus in the county.
Making the disclosure in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Sanniquellie recently, the Media Coordinator of the county’s Ebola Task Force, Paul K. Karnue, said the exercise is to reinforce the previous preventive measures carried out by the taskforce during the height of the disease in the country.
Karnue noted that the reoccurrence of Ebola in Margibi County as reported recently has frightened several citizens in Nimba, leading them to call for gthe strengthening of measures to avoid the recurrence of the virus in the county.
At the meeting, the stakeholders resolved that all citizens should report all dead bodies and strangers to the county health authorities, and restrict all cultural practices, including the bathing of dead bodies and sick people anywhere in the county.
