Residents Concerned About CHT Treatment

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG September 15 (LINA) –Residents of Joseph Town and Harmon Hill communities have expressed concern about the treatment being meted out to them by the Bomi County Health Team (CHT).

The residents of the two communities claimed that they are always left unattended whenever they visit the Liberia Government Hospital (LGH) in Tubmanburg for treatment.

The residents made their concerns known when they marched through the major streets of Tubmanburg last weekend.

Presenting their grievances to the County Authorities, the spokesperson of the communities, Amos Cooper, said whenever patients say that they are from Joseph Town or Harmon Hills community; the health workers do not attend to them.

 

He said whatsoever the case, people of the communities need medical attention from the hospital and called for the urgent interventions of the County Authorities to save lives as the issue of Ebola is critical.

Responding to the grievances, Bomi County Superintendent Samuel Folley Brown said the matter will be brought before the concern parties for appropriate actions.

Superintendent Brown said educating the people about the prevention methods of Ebola is the only means to prevent the virus.

However, Superintendent Brown disclosed that the Quarantine Unit at the government hospital is only meant for 12 persons, but currently there are 15 Ebola patients in the unit.
