By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent
ROBERTSPORT, August 11 (LINA) -The head of the Grand Cape Mount County Health Team (CHT), Dr. Julius Garbo, is appealing to the relevant Government agencies and partners to train a 20-man burial team constituted by the county administration.
Dr. Grabo made the appeal recently in Tienii Town,Tewor District during the County Ebola Task Force meeting.
He said the training will provide an opportunity for the county to carry out its own burial so that there will be no need to wait for the only Government burial team to arrive from Monrovia before burying Ebola victims.
Dr. Grabo said during the meeting, Superintendent Imam Paasewe mandated all district commissioners to select four persons from each of the five districts to be trained to bury Ebola victims.
The medical practitioner said the county administration is working out modalities to identify appropriate Ebola burial sites in each of the five districts of the county.
He said it was regrettable that due to the lack of county burial teams, it currently takes between two to three days to bury persons who die from the Ebola disease in the county.
