No Ebola fears for U-20 in Liberia


However The Standard yesterday confirmed from credible media sources in Liberia that no case of the deadly disease has been found in Monrovia and the single suspected case has been found to be negative of the virus. 

All the same, when we contacted GFF yesterday, the head of competitions and  second vice president Kebba Touray said they have been closely monitoring the reports about the disease in Guinea, adding, ”but so far no case has been reported in Liberia meaning that there  is  no reason for us to raise the issue with Caf. We would have written to Caf to raise concern about it but as of now there is no reason to fear.”

Mr Touray said that notwithstanding, Gambian teams always travel with a medical man and no doubt health precautions are always part of the briefings on each trip including this one to Monrovia.
