Transport Ebola patients in ambulance

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, September 12 (LINA) - The Movement Officer of the Samaritan Purse has warned against transporting suspected Ebola patients in commercial or private vehicles to an Ebola Treatment Unit.

Mr. J. Kai Nyepah explained that Ebola suspected patients should be transported in ambulance vehicles to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus rather than commercial or private vehicles which might infect other people.

Nyepah made the observation Friday in an interview with Liberia News Agency at a program marking the dedication of the Community Hope Education and Ebola Resource Center in Paynesville outside Monrovia.

He noted that when commercial or private vehicles are used to transport suspected Ebola patients, they do not wait for their vehicles to be chlorinated before leaving the centers and begin to pick up other passengers, pointing out that this could spread the virus.

He stressed the need for government and its partners to make ambulances available to transport suspected Ebola patients instead of the people using commercial or private vehicles for that purpose.

He indicated that if ambulances are designated to pick up suspected Ebola patients from the communities, the Ebola infection rate would reduce.
