Health Emergency to Continue or Not
Adama Sesay, Trader
As law abiding citizens, we have cooperated with the Public Health Emergency for more than a year now and that has negatively affected our businesses to the extent that one could find it now very difficult to buy another stock. I will be very grateful if the Government of Sierra Leone sees reason to relax the Public Health Emergency.
Amadu Jalloh, Okada rider
This Public Health Emergency is good as far as the prevention of the Ebola Virus Disease is concerned but for the fact that the rate of infection has dropped drastically, it will also be good for government to get things back to normalcy.
Ibrahim Tunkara, Teacher
Although the Public Health Emergency has helped in controlling movement of criminals at night as security personnel are very alert in all parts of the country to pick up any movement but it has reduced income generating activities among many people especially those that do business at night.
Sheriff Koroma, Musician
The music industry is one of the worst hit by the Public Health Emergency, so, I am on bended knees pleading with government not to extend it, and otherwise, our survival will be at stake.
Janet Bangura, Commercial Sex Worker
I will never forgive the Public Health Emergency for drastically reducing my number of clients and, consequently, my income, so, I will be the happiest person if it is not extended..
Tejan Kamara, Driver
We the drivers are among the worst affected by the prolonged Public Health Emergency which has cut down drastically on our daily income. I am calling on President Koroma not to even think of extending it as there are only two Ebola patients left in the whole country.
Moses Samba, Cleaner
Being a street cleaner, I have no problem with the Public Health Emergency as it has reduced my work of cleaning the streets, so, I want it to continue as long as it can.
William Cole, Civil Servant
I want the emergency laws to continue until the Ebola disease that has cost us thousands of lives is eradicated to avoid further infection as cases are still coming up in some parts of the country.
Marion Jones, Security
For me in the security sector, I have observed that the emergency regulations have scared away thieves and other hard core criminals who normally use the night as a platform to perpetrate their diabolic activities.
Hassan Dumbuya, Human Right Activist
Government should ensure our free movement as those in Abacha Street and other places because if the emergency law is meant to control the spread of Ebola virus, those people must have not been allowed to do business in an overcrowded environment. I am calling on Government to lift up the regulations and give a sigh of relief to its people.
