The local Superintendent of Glakon Statutory District #2, in Grand Bassa County, Morris A. Siryon, is urging commissioners of the five townships and two administrative districts, the city mayor as well as well as elders and chiefs in the district to be ‘’good ambassadors of Ebola eradication in the district and the county in general.
Superintendent Siryon gave the admonition last week during an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer at his office in the district.
Mr. Siryon named the townships as Hoegbahn, Marlio, Vambo, Goingbo and Tarr Wreh, and the administrative districts as Yeablo and Geegbahn, as well as the only city, St. John River City.
He called on local leaders to be patriotic and nationalistic in the discharge of their respective duties and focus on the sensitization of their people about the danger and preventive measures advanced by the ministry of Health and our international partners to curtail the deadly Ebola virus that continues to affect thousands of our people in the county and the country in general.
He noted with emphasis that even though his local leaders and chiefs have been applying all efforts to eradicate the spread of the disease, they should all redouble their efforts in order to completely kick out the virus from their district’.
He urged them to continue making maximum use of the preventive measures and assorted items given by the county leadership and equally sharing them among the most needy towns and villages to stop the viral spread and to save lives.
He cautioned leaders, elders, chiefs and citizens of his district not to doubt the existence of the disease and refuse to adhere to the measures that can prevent its spread among family members and others.
‘’We must not overlook the decline of Ebola cases because no one knows about its rapid spread in our district,” he added.
He admitted that since the outbreak of the disease in the county his district had not been badly hit by the disease, except for Geegbahn Administrative District #2’B’, where few persons were said to have died from the disease. But the outbreak had since ceased because, according to him, the people there have been adhering to the preventive measures.
