The Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV) belongs to the same family of diseases as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).

The Government of Liberia informs the general public that a third person has tested positive for the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country. The new case is 63-year-old Linda Ross, who was immediately taken to the 14 Military Hospital to be treated. Her contacts are being traced.

In the wake of this development, Health Minister Wilhelmina Jallah will convene an emergency meeting of the Incident Management Team (IMT) on Saturday, March 21, to review existing health protocols and possibly announce new measures.

The government urges calm as it works tirelessly to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus. The public will be kept regularly up to date with developments as they unfold.

  1. The names calling is going to cause a great stigmatization and panic for family members. It’s wise a pare like Daily Observers don’t follow such even if the government is calling names.

  2. It’s good that the government keeping us to update on the virus,but should avoid calling name of those who are positive of the virus.

  3. I think it is better to call the name(s) of the patient(s). Probably, you might come in
    contact with the person, than you can report yourself for self-quarantine.

  4. There’s nothing about the coronavirus that should be kept in secret anymore. Name-calling is one great way to stop the spread of the disease and track potential contacts or carriers. Stigmatization at this point is a sure remedy. When the victims fully recovered I’m too sure the now-stigmatization will receive warm embraces of national integration. There is no bush for a bad child.

  5. We the Liberian people need to be very much careful about this virus.carriers. Stigmatization at this point is a sure remedy.
