New anti-Ebola measures welcomed, But…

Like President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf intimated in one of her recent addresses to the nation, the difficulty in controlling the current outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease in Liberia is the direct result of persistent denials, cultural varying practices, disregard for the advice of health workers and disrespect for the warnings by the government.

Reassess ‘Action Plan’ against Ebola

From a total of 1,145 deaths reported by the World |Health Organization, or WHO in West Africa since the outbreak, more than 400 people are known to have been killed by the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia. It is no doubt that if the Government of Liberia does not redouble its efforts in all commitment and sincerity, the number may double in the shortest period of time. Redoubling its efforts entails a reassessment of its ‘action plan’, as well as re-thinking its political will to finally and ‘once-and-for-all’ deal with the outbreak.

The disease may have overwhelmed the Liberian health care system because of the weakness, ignorance, unpreparedness, as well as un-necessary bureaucracies, among others, especially during the second outbreak of the disease. Amid all of these shortcomings, a number of interventions, especially by the Liberian Presidency also help to reinvigorate our resistance to the disease. Such interventions also stimulated the holistic and continuous awareness/sensitization campaign that has, to a great extent; already diminishes disability in certain quarters of our population.

Gov’t intervention in price hiking is a must

The State of Emergency declared by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf on August 6, 2014 in consonance with Article 86 of the 1986 Constitution of Liberia, is currently being enforced across the country. The members of the House of Representatives, in plenary, last Thursday, endorse the declaration, while the Senate late last week, concurred with the House, even though a few civil society organizations have criticized the decision by the government for the State of Emergency in as much most Liberians welcomed it as a way of placing a national focus on the fight against the deadly Ebola virus disease. Under the SOE, according to the Liberian Head of State, certain basic rights, including movements,  would be suspended to ensure serious concentration on Ebola epicenters of the country.
