LIBERIA: U.N. Official Urges Vigilance For Zero Ebola Target

The Head of the U.N. Mission for Emergency Ebola Response (UNMEER), Anthony Banbury, has called on Liberians to remain vigilant in combating Ebola if the country is to achieve the zero level goal.

Banbury observed that the improvement made in certain quarters around the country does not show that the Ebola virus has been eradicated, especially when neighbors,  Sierra Leone and Guinea,  are still recording increasing cases of infections.

The UNMEER boss made the statement Tuesday at a press conference at the James Spriggs Payne Airfield before departing Liberia after also visiting Sierra Leone and Guinea to assess the Ebola situation in these countries.

He assured that UNMEER will work along with the Liberian Government to ensure that the fight against Ebola is intensified by providing more logistics and financial support to enhance the fight against the disease.

He stressed the need to invest in the health sector to boost its capacity to meet the challenges posed by the Ebola epidemic in the near future, which will require more money, health materials and advanced training of health workers.
