Taskforce Official Wants Bong Ebola Project Fast-Tracked
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, August 15 (LINA) - The Chairman of the Psychosocial Committee of the Bong County Ebola Taskforce, Rev. G. Victor Padmore, has emphasized the need to fast track construction of the Ebola Treatment Center in the county.

He said the sooner the construction is completed, the better it will be for the reopening of the county’s two major hospitals.

In remarks Thursday when he received a donation from Senator Jewel Taylor following a visit to the site, Rev. Padmore said the major hold in the reopening of both Phebe and C.B Dunbar Hospitals is the provision of Personal Protective Equipment, meeting of health workers’ demands and the construction of the treatment site to avoid mixing Ebola patients with others.

According to Rev. Padmore, more than 30 pieces of PPEs are used daily, explaining that six are used for the burial of just one body, while specimen and other teams also need to be protected.

He lauded Senator Taylor for the donation and promised to use them for the intended purpose.

In remarks, Senator Taylor welcomed the resolution of the land dispute that initially engulfed the project, saying, “Now that we have a site, interventions will be made to have the center completed as soon as possible.”

The center is located between the Central Agriculture Research Institute (CARI), the Leper Colony, Sergeant Kollie Town, and two miles away from the Gbarnga -Monrovia Highway.

Already Save the Children has begun transporting sand, rocks, and other construction materials to begin work.

Authorities told the Liberia News Agency the center will comprise two structures each containing 20 rooms with a Nurses’ Center, power house, water tanks and other facilities to meet global standards for an Ebola Treatment Center.
