Residents Call For Harbor To Be Quarantined

Residents in Harbor, a slum community opposite the Youth Development Movement (YDM) Junction at Calaba Town, have called on the National Ebola Response Centre (NERC) to quarantine the community following the deaths of six family members, including the mother of the family, who is the latest to die of the Ebola disease.
According to residents in the community, the mother of the affected family suddenly dropped dead in the afternoon of Monday 3rd October 2014 while on her way to the hospital.
Sources add that another family member had earlier absconded to an unknown destination as a result of the death of his brother and that four others, including the father, who were reported seriously ill, have been conveyed to a treatment center.

According to the people, the house where the deaths occurred is along the access road leading to the main source of fetching water in the community which makes the area unsafe for residents.
However, the corpse of the deceased has been collected by the burial team.
Two corpses were yesterday collected in the Calaba Town community, including that of a middle age woman at Dust Field, Lower Mayenkineh Road. Reports alleged that she dropped dead in her backyard garden.
Similar deaths have occurred in the community without the affected premises being quarantined.
