Medic Roots For Nationwide Ebola Treatment Centers

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, September 10 (LINA) – Bomi County acting County Health Officer, Dr. Gabriel Logan, is recommending the establishment of Ebola Treatment Centers (ETCs) in all counties.

Dr. Logan said considering the growing number of persons infected with the Ebola virus, there is an urgent need to graduate from Withholding Units to treatment centers to reduce overcrowding at withholding units.

He made the statement on Wednesday in Tubmanburg in an interview with a local community radio. 

Dr. Logan emphasized the need to have ETC in Bomi and other counties in the country.

At the same time, Dr. Logan is recommending the establishment of a check-point at the Po River to stop suspected Ebola patients from leaving Montserrado to travel to Bomi County,  adding, “it seems to be that the people are by-passing the Klay Check-Point”.

He believes that most of the recent suspected cases in Bomi are from Monserrado County, especially in the district of Bomi that is closer to Montserrado County.

Dr. Logan disclosed that currently, there are 78 recorded cases of Ebola in Bomi County, with 33 confirmed, 41 probable and four suspected cases.

He said 10 persons are currently in the Quarantine Unit in Tubmanburg, six of whom are showing signs of improvement.
