Government Discharges 12 More Ebola Survivors

By Wilfred Gortor

MONROVIA, September 11 (LINA) - The Government of Liberia has released12 Ebola survivors from the ELWA Ebola Treatment Unit Three in Monrovia.

Amongst those released Wednesday was a woman who gave birth to a child while being conveyed by ambulance to the treatment center 21 days ago, the Liberia News Agency reports.

Presenting the survivors, the Head of the Center, Dr. Jerry Brown, said their survival stemmed from intensive treatment, care and proper counseling provided them by doctors and health care workers at the facility, and pledged their commitment to saving more lives.

Brown noted that while it is the priority of all health workers at the center to see more Liberians walk out of treatment units and reunite with their families, this can only be done if the ETUs are given the necessary support by government.

He said for the country to win the battle against the Ebola disease, the government should provide adequate support to every treatment unit across the country, adding, “If this is done, it will motivate health workers to do their work effectively.”

Receiving the survivors, Finance Minister Amara Konneh reaffirmed government’s commitment to providing benefits and necessary support to healthcare workers throughout the country.

He said government will do all it can to “put a smile” on the faces of health workers because “they are the true champions of Liberia.”

According to Konneh, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is discussing with authorities of the Ministry of Health and international partners to ensure that health workers receive just benefits for the level of work to ensure the safety of Liberians.

According to health authorities, the 12 survivors bring to 57, the total number of patients who have been released from treat units across the country in the last two days.
