The head of Liberia’s Incident Management System or IMS, Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah says Liberia will be declared Ebola-free on April 13, if there is no more cases of the deadly Ebola virus.
Minister Nyenswah noted that if Liberia will be declared Ebola-free on April 13, Liberians would need to be more vigilant because the neighboring Mano River countries of Guinea and Sierra Leone were still carrying the virus.
He said Liberia has been counting 0 case from March 2nd, 2015, also indicating that the last case contacts at the St. Paul Bridge ending on the 11th on March were negative.
According to Minister Nyenswah, up to 60 persons were tested daily in all of the Laboratories around the country.
He emphasized the need for immigration at the borders to be more vigilant because Ebola was still in the region.
The head of the IMS said there were more Ebola cases at the community level more than health facilities, saying that’s why they negotiated for safe and dignified burials now done on the Robert field highway.
