( 22, 2015)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf says, though the Ebola virus remains in Liberia, the Government has confidence in the response system’s capability.

The Liberian Leader also said the country could not have achieved against Ebola without the joint effort of communities, international partners, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and African Union (AU).

President Johnson-Sirleaf made the comment at the week-end at the official Investiture Ceremony in the Monrovia City Hall Ball Room.

At the ceremony, the President bestowed honors on several Liberians, foreigners and institutions for their services rendered the country in containing the epidemic.

The Liberian Leader said: “The Government has acknowledged, with pride, the indispensable role played by doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and workers who paid the ultimate price of life during those terrifying days.”

“Though Liberia cannot bring them back to life, the country will forever cherish their memories as they put country before self,” she noted.

President Johnson-Sirleaf further noted: “Despite the risks, the health practitioners took up the challenge of reaching out and administering services to those who were affected by the unknown enemy.”
