Gov’t to Restore West Point Ebola Center

By Wilfred Gortor (Intern)

MONROVIA, August 19 (LINA) - Information Minister Lewis G. Brown has disclosed that the Ebola Holding Center recently vandalized by some residents of the Township of West Point is currently being restored for normal operations.

The minister also revealed that all 17 suspected Ebola patients, who earlier escaped the facility, have turned themselves in to health authorities and have been quarantined at the John F. Kennedy Ebola Treatment Center.

Brown made the statement at the Ministry of Information Tuesday at a special press conference held in the conference hall where he provided updates about government’s efforts in combating the Ebola disease.

The Information Minister said the decision to restore operations at the holding center in West Point followed a consultative and collaborative meeting held between government and the leadership of the township, including elders and youth groups.

He said the West Point leadership expressed regrets over the unwholesome act of some members of the community to pillage and sabotage the operations of the health team in the area.

According to him, government has retrieved several looted items, including a generator, mattresses and medical supplies, taken away from the holding center.

The minister has, however, attributed the unfortunate situation to the spread of misinformation that was circulated among some residents of the township.

He called on all Liberians to be law-abiding and refrain from negative vices that tend to derail government’s efforts to contain and eradicate the deadly Ebola virus that has terrorized the lives of innocent Liberians.
