A Liberia journalist Yaya Kromah has fallen to Ebola. His sister who works for the Carter Center office in Monrovia posted the information on social media and also informed the Press Union of Liberia Thursday afternoon.
He died at the Ebola Treatment Center at the J.F.K. Hospital in Monrovia, while his entire family (in Airfield, Matadi) had been quarantined after he was taken to the hospital.
He is the first Liberia journalist to fall prey to the disease. “The PUL is very deeply saddened by the news,” Secretary General D. Kaihenneh Sengbeh said. “This shows that Ebola has no boundary and all Liberians must collaborate to fight the invisible enemy that is tearing the country apart. Our deepest sympathy to the rest of the family and may his soul and all those departed rest in perfect peace.”
