CHT Head Urges Health Workers To Resume Work

By:  D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, August 22 (LINA) -The head of the Grand Cape Mount County Health Team (CHT), Dr. Julius Garbo, is appealing to health workers in the county to return to work in the supreme interest of the citizens.

He said since the outbreak of the Ebola virus in March this year, a number of health workers in the county have abandoned health facilities for fear of contracting the disease.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), Dr. Garbo made the appeal in Sinje Town, Garwula District recently during the County Ebola Taskforce meeting.

He said the delay by health workers to return to work has the propensity to spread the virus, because, he noted, suspected patients will not be given prompt treatment.

The medical practitioner said the CHT has a workforce of more than 400 persons, serving over 32 health facilities, including the St. Timothy Government Hospital in Robertsport, the provincial capital.

Meanwhile, Dr. Garbo has lauded authorities of the Ministry of Health for providing Ebola fighting equipment and materials that will enhance the performance of health workers.

He said despite of the availability of Ebola fighting equipment and materials, health facilities in the county are yet to be fully reopened to the public for fear of Ebola and the delay in health workers returning to duty.
