The New Dawn Liberia The New Dawn LiberiaThe Cuttington Graduate Student Association of Liberia or GRASAL, is calling on the Government of Liberia and its development partners to provide thermometers and other Ebola prevention materials to educational institutions throughout the country, ahead of the reopening of schools in Februaray.

In a press release issued on January 19 in Monrovia, GRASAL, which is based on the campus of the Cuttington Graduate School in Sinkor, said the entire nation will be at risk of an upsurge of the Ebola Virus Disease if schools were not empowered to prevent the spread of the disease.

The group, which comprised of graduate students from the University of Liberia and Cuttington University, said Ebola prevention materials must be immediately made available to academic institutions before the February 2, 2015 deadline, adding, “No one should expect the schools to purchase these preventive materials without transferring the costs on tuition fees, especially in the wake of the economic hardship brought about by the Ebola Virus Disease.”

The association expressed grave concern that if schools were not assisted, most students will be entering classes without washing their heads with sanitizers and having their temperatures checked to prevent the spread of the disease.
