MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Director General of the National Public Health Institute of Liberia, Tolbert Nyenswah, says the Country is well prepared to respond to any disease outbreak.

Mr. Nyenswa’s comment comes in the wake of the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Speaking to ELBC Monday, May 21, 2018, Mr. Nyenswah said:” The Country’s 93 health districts have the surveillance capacity to respond to any outbreak.”

He also refuted reports that Ebola has resurfaced in Liberia and Ghana, encouraging Liberians not to panic.

Mr. Nyenswah maintained that the Government of Liberia is concerned and monitoring developments of the outbreak in the DRC, but stressed that Liberia has the necessary sophistication to deal with any outbreak of Ebola.
