Mayor of Paynesville, Cyvette Gibson has donated a consignment of medical supplies to a clinic in the A.B. Tolbert Road community, where 16 people are being quarantined following the death of a relative.

The death of Kebbeh Kollie, who becomes the sixth confirmed case and the second person to die of the disease, the latest confirmed Ebola case, and the subsequent quarantining of the 16 persons in that community, fear is said to have griped the entire community.

On Tuesday, the deputy head of the Incident Management System of Liberia’s Ebola response, Dr. Francis Kateh called on the public not to panic as the government was in control of the situation.

And Mayor Gibson’s donation to one of the renowned clinics in A.B. Tolbert Road community on Wednesday was to boost the confidence of healthcare workers as well as residents amid the threat of Ebola.

Her donation to the Hope for Women Medical Center, a huge consignment of assorted medical items, was in continuation of an anti-Ebola campaign, “Operation stop Ebola”.

The campaign, launched during the previous outbreak in 2014, a collaboration between the municipalities of Paynesville and Monrovia and UNICEF, was pivotal in ending the disease then.
