MONROVIA, Liberia 16 April 2014 –UNICEF today deployed a 12 member team to Lofa County, where fears and misconceptions surrounding the deadly Ebola virus risk hampering Government led efforts to stop its spread. The team will work across the county and directly engage with local communities to ensure families fully understand how they can keep safe from the disease, and what to do if they fall sick.
As of today, 27 suspected, probable and confirmed Ebola cases and 13 related deaths, including women and children, have been reported in Liberia. Six cases have been confirmed. While concerted Government led efforts are helping to keep the number of new suspected cases down, UNICEF is concerned that confusion and denial of the threat Ebola poses, in some communities, could hamper the national prevention response.
