Following the completion of her 21-day self-isolation from the public, Transport Minister Angela Cassell-Bush has resumed official duties.
Minister Bush quarantined herself following the death of her driver, Nimene Sumo, from the Ebola virus disease. A statement issued by the Ministry over the weekend quoted the preliminary result from the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOH/SW), that Mr. Sumo died of Ebola on October 11, 2014.
The MOT statement further said that the deceased made no contact with Minister Bush on Friday, October 3, his last day at work. Minister Bush immediately quarantined herself for 21 days from October 3 to 27.
At a media forum in Monrovia over the weekend, Minister Bush said that her decision to isolate herself was in full compliance with the preventive measures against the deadly virus. She noted that it was also prudent for officials like herself to lead by example.
She then disclosed that the isolation period afforded her the opportunity to concentrate on strategies that will help her to successfully implement major programs for the rebranding of the transport sector.
Meanwhile Minister Bush has received a certificate from the MOH/SW declaring her Ebola free.
