A family who sought refuge in Sinoe County for fear of contracting the Ebola virus is now being quarantined following the death of a child who is confirmed to have contracted the Ebola virus apparently while in Grand Kru County.According to our correspondent in the county, the lady identified as Prezetta left her Grand Kru residence along with her husband and son and was hosted in the Po-River community.
Our correspondent said it is now confirmed that the Ebola virus has finally surfaced in the county as the lady and husband are also confirmed being carriers and are now quarantined at the J. S. Grant Medical Hospital.
The church of Christ located in the Sarpo Community is also being quarantined because members of the church were in contact with the lady before the death of her son.
This scared the youths of the community who on Friday organized themselves under the banner of the Sinoe Youth Task Force in collaboration with the Voice of Sinoe and launched an Ebola campaign spreading the preventive measures and ways in which one can contract the virus.
Meanwhile, our correspondent said the community task force comprised of the medical team is swift in responding to calls made by community dwellers relating to the Ebola virus.
