Mera called on traditional rulers and religious leaders to support all measures taken by government and health officials in the state.
“The leaders should enhance surveillance for cases in their areas and report any suspected case to the relevant health outpost, and also support government officials working in any capacity to bring an end to the outbreak,” he added.
