VP Boakai Wants Health Workers Honored For Ebola Fight
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, January 19 (LINA) -Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has stressed the need for Government to honor health workers who played substantial roles in curbing the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

“They deserve to be honored and remembered,” he said during a memorial organized by the Samaritan’s Purse, an international non-governmental organization, to remember those who became innocent victims of the virus.

“True, the health workers who paid the ultimate price in the war against Ebola are our heroes. This fact needs to be etched on our minds indelibly, for they deserve to be honored and remembered,” the vice president added.

He described the lives of the deceased health workers as one that made up the fuel that blazed the missiles the country launched against the killer disease.

“As I noted at a ceremony hosted by the Feed the Future launch of the ‘Search for the Ebola Heroes’ campaign, “this war that we found ourselves fighting was one with an aggressor that was unknown,” VP Boakai indicated.

According to him, the deadly nature and capacity of the strange enemy (Ebola) defied all human reasoning, adding, “Obviously, any real pre-battle preparation was simply inconceivable.”

“So also we should memorialize those ordinary citizens who succumbed to the disease,” he noted, stressing that “the tribute we pay today by dedicating this memorial to these fallen heroes extends to all such victims of this sub-regional enemy, in Guinea and Sierra Leone.”

Meanwhile, Vice President Boakai has lauded Medicins Sans Frontieres, the U.S Centers for Disease Control, the various Ebola Task Forces, county medical teams, hospitals, and the many other public and private health professionals for such sense of purpose and duty against the EVD.
