The Chief Executive Officer of the National Ebola Response Centre (NERC) has disclosed that one of the reasons for the introduction of ‘Operation Surge’ in the Western Area is to ensure that the city and its environs are rid of the deadly Ebola virus as soon as possible, as according to him, “most other districts in the country are making tremendous progress in fighting the disease”.

Retired Major Alfred Palo Conteh said all entertainment centers, including restaurants, must close at 6:00pm prompt as clearly stated by President Ernest Bai Koroma in his official address to the nation on Wednesday.

“We want to nail [the] Western Area to ensure that Ebola is totally eradicated. No bar, restaurant or business centre is exempted. We can give passes to people traveling out of the country but movements have been restricted,” said the NERC boss.

This process, according to Conteh, marks an important step in the fight against Ebola.

It could be recalled that on Wednesday the president addressed the nation and specifically mentioned the operation in the Western Area that involves a significant uplift in efforts to remove the sick from communities and get them early treatment for whatever ailment they may be suffering from.

“As we all know, the sooner people get help the better their chances of survival. But you will also know that there is significant resistance in the communities for people to take action. There are many reasons behind people’s decision not to come forward if they are ill: fear being high amongst them,” noted Rtd. Major Conteh. “We want to reassure communities that calling 117 and coming forward early for treatment is far better.”

He added that the capacity of government has grown to almost unbelievable levels, and that he is confident by the end of December the country would have got 1,000 treatment and holding beds in the Western Area.

“We have over 40 ambulances available, and from a single laboratory in Kenema, we will have six laboratories operational by the end of this month. Ebola is deadly but it can be stopped by you,” Conteh said.
