Only You, Community Members, Can Stop Ebola, not Doctors, Nurses …

first_imgMargibi County Senator Oscar A. Cooper has underscored the need for all Liberians,  irrespective of culture,  religion or economic status, to take seriously the preventive measures instituted by government through its Health Ministry to combat the Ebola outbreak across the country.According to him, the level of the outbreak now in the country required all Liberians’  holistic participation in the fight against the disease. He said government and partners alone cannot stop the spread of the disease.Sen. Cooper made the assertion recently, at his residence at Cinta, a Kakata suburb, when he presented a special Ebola awareness message to the media in the county.In his message, Sen. Cooper told his citizens how they can prevent themselves from getting the disease and the danger it poses to family members who may encounter the Ebola virus.He advised Liberians to always avoid shaking hands, or touching an  Ebola-related dead body.The Margibi County Senator further cautioned citizens to report immediately to the Ministry of Health or a designated group,  cases of people suffering from severe pain, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, fever/malaria, red eyes, and rash, among others.The Senator noted that by adhering to these measures, it will certainly help the government and its people to eradicate the pestilence from Liberia.He averred, “My people, this Ebola thing is not only the government business but all of our business. We have to find  security for ourselves from this deadly disease. When you discover that you are not feeling well, go to the hospital. The sooner you go to the hospital, the better your chances of survival.  If you are sick, or you know that you have the virus, don’t endanger another person with it. Doing that will not help you nor stop the widespread of the virus,” Sen. Cooper cautioned.“The current status of the virus in Liberia cannot be stopped by medical Doctors, nurses nor government alone,” he told his Margibi citizens, “but by all of you –community members.  You are the participants in the fight against Ebola,” he declared.Senator Cooper encouraged all Liberians to team up  and unite to defeat this human enemy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Black Bush Polder cleared of threats from rain – Regional Chairman

first_img– residents claims dams overflowingChairman of Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) David Armogan is confident that the region has the capacity to drain the Black Bush Polder area in light of the impending rainy season and as such, the area is clear from any expected flooding.Moments after relating this information, residents in the same Black Bush Polder area contacted Guyana Times to complain that dams in the area were overflowing. This publication was told that the outfall channels are all blocked and the pumps are clogged with mud, resulting in sluice doors not being able to open.Work has commenced at the Adventure Outfall ChannelThe pumps at the outfall channels were extremely helpful during the last rainy season, preventing farmers from suffering any losses due to flooding. However, none of those systems are presently in place even though the May/June rainy season has commenced.According to Regional Vice Chairman Denis DeRoop, who heads the Regional Works Committee, the contractor employed by the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) to clear the Number 43 Village outfall last year did not complete the project.Hence, the siltation has resulted in fishing boats being grounded. The NDIA has the responsibility for clearing the outfalls which drain the Black Bush Polder; Eversham, Adventure and Number 43 Village.Nevertheless, works have commenced at the Adventure outfall, Armogan stated.“We are also in the process of awarding contracts for the Number 47 Outfall and some of the other outfalls that we would normally be doing during the rainy season. I hope that the Tender Board can act fast enough to make sure that these contracts are awarded and people put on standby so that immediately as soon as the rains start to pour down, we would get the machines in place to get the outfalls cleared,” the Chairman noted.More so, he added that the situation is being monitored as it relates to rainfall. The Chairman explained that only if there is a significant amount of rainfall only then would there be any threat of flooding in the Black bush Polder.The contractors, he noted, will have to be prepared to commence work at very short notice should the need arise.He further explained that the current drainage and irrigation is designed to take off one and a half inches of rainfall within a 24-hour period but if it continues to rain constantly over a two-day period, some flooding can occur.“But we have large pumps now at 43 Village, Eversham and we have to be able to instal pumps at Adventure too. So we have capacity not only in terms of gravidity drainage but also when the tide rises we can also do pumping,” Armagon stated.The Hydro Meteorological Office predicts that this year there will be less rainfall when compared with the May/June period last year.This time, however, it will be impossible for pumping to occur since even the area around the pump is completely silted. Some farmers say if heavy rainfall should come, there will be flooding.last_img read more

City to build a new outdoor skating loop in Matthews Park in addition to rinks

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The city of Fort St. John says that its outdoor rinks should be operational in the near future.The city’s Grounds Manager Chris Murphy says that city crews will be building two outdoor rinks this year. One will be located at Centennial Park, while the other will be built at Kin Park. Murphy says that crews have been using this week to compact snow that will serve as the rinks’ foundations.He says that crews won’t be putting down any water to make the ice rink’s surfaces as the weather forecast is calling for daytime highs to rise above freezing on Friday and Saturday. However, Murphy explained that the forecast is calling for a cold snap to arrive on Sunday and Monday with highs of -10 and -23 degrees respectively. If those colder temperatures arrive and stay, they will start flooding next Monday for the rinks to be up and running by next weekend at the latest.- Advertisement -Murphy added that city crews will be doing something new this year.
