(LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has said though the Ebola virus is still in the country, the government has confidence in the capability of the response system put into place by the Incident Management System (IMS).

The Liberian leader noted that this could not have been achieved without the efforts of the communities, international partners, the leaders and people of regional institutions such as the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and African Union (AU).

President Sirleaf made the comment at the official Investiture Ceremony held in the Ball Room of the Monrovia City Hall at the weekend, where she bestowed honors on several Liberians, foreigners and institutions for their services rendered in containing the Ebola virus in Liberia.

“We acknowledged with pride, the indispensable role played by our doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and healthcare workers who stood by us in those terrifying days, who in the discharge of their duties and response to service paid the ultimate price of life,” President Sirleaf recounted.

She noted that “though we cannot bring them back to life, the country will forever cherish their memories, as they, despite the risks, put country before self, took up the challenge to reach out and administered services to those who died from an unknown enemy.”

President Sirleaf also extolled friends from foreign lands, “who left the comfort and safety of their countries and families to join Liberia in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus despite the obvious risks.”
