Health Workers Deployed At Entrance To Bopolu

By Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU, August 16 (LINA) -Health authorities in Gbarpolu County have deployed health workers at the main entrance to Bopolu City, the provincial capital of the county, to ensure that suspected Ebola carriers do not enter the city.

The county has so far not registered any case of Ebola, according to health authorities, who say the new measure is intended to keep the county free of Ebola.

Meanwhile, a one-day technical workshop for health practitioners in the county sponsored by the international organization, ART Alliance, in collaboration with the Lutheran World Service for Development, has ended in Bopolu City, Gbarpolu County.

The workshop, which ended Thursday, educated health practitioners about what they need to do before handling patients and treating persons infected with the Ebola virus.

Facilitators of the workshop, mainly drawn from the Lutheran World Service for Development, cautioned the health practitioners to always apply safety measures and use required materials to avoid contracting the Ebola virus.

The workshop was held on the compound of the Chief Jallah Lone Medical Center in central Bopolu City.
