Grand Bassa County has reactivated two major check points as the fight against the deadly disease continues.
Making the disclosure Tuesday, Grand Bassa County Information Officer, Eddie Williams, said the move is part of the set down measures by the Ministry of Health.
He warned that the Big Joe Town check point was not reactivated for DEA and Police officers to harass citizens. "As the fight against the Ebola virus continues, the county administration reactivated and equipped the Owensgrove and the Big Joe Town check points with a temo-flash, a temperature detector each," he said.
Mr. Eddie Williams clarified that the reactivation of the Big JoeTown check point was not done by Representative Robertson Siaway for officers assigned there to harass peaceful citizens. "The Electoral District #5 lawmaker is only working in collaboration with the County Health Team and the county administration to ensure that people do not enter Grand Bassa County with symptoms of Ebola," he said.
The county information officer also used the occasion to announce that funeral homes are not to receive bodies that do not have death certificate from recognized institutions.
