House Committee Roots For Mobile Testing Centers

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, September 12 (LINA) -The Health and Social Welfare Committee of the House of Representatives has recommended the setting up of mobile testing centers in areas affected by the Ebola virus across the country.

The committee believes this will enhance efforts to contain the spread and prevention of the deadly disease in Liberia.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), the committee’s recommendation was contained in its second update on the fight against the virus which was read on the 4th Day Sitting of the Extraordinary Session of the House of Representatives Thursday.

The committee also stressed the need for all international funding to Liberia to be categorized in cash and goods, and periodic reports submitted to the National Task Force and the National Legislature.

In the up-date, the House’s Health and Social Welfare Committee also called for speedy training for all health workers, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) use and universal precautionary methods.

At the same time, the committee has recommended that the National Task Force organizes a community reintegration program and strategy for survivors of the killer Ebola virus.

Meanwhile, Plenary has endorsed the Committee’s recommendations, and requested that copies be distributed to all members of the House of Representatives.
