No fewer than five hundred teachers from Southern Cross River are currently undergoing awareness and sensitization training on the dreaded Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) as primary and secondary schools students get set to resume.

The training workshop which held in Calabar recently witnessed a large turnout of teachers, parents and proprietors of private schools from Southern Cross River State.

It appeared stakeholders in the education sector were all out to be part of the State government effort to give out first hand information about the deadly Ebola Virus Diseases.

The Commissioner for Health, Professor Angela Oyo-Ita and the SA on Community Health, Iyam Ugot, stressed the need for good toilets, water system and personal hygiene in all schools in the State.

They charged parents, guardians, proprietors and teachers to look after their wards before coming to school, stressing that if all those involved take charge of their duties properly, there will be very little to worry about.

‎The awareness program according to Cross River State Commissioner for Education, Professor Offiong Offiong was to put the care givers in the state school system on the know about Ebola and why they should know all the precautionary measures needed to give to the wards in their care as the resumption date gets near.

The Commissioner for Education said the awareness will be organized for stakeholders in both Central and Northern Senatorial districts.
