Cape Mount To Train Lab Technicians

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, September 16 (LINA) -The Grand Cape Mount County Health Team (CHT) will on Friday commence training 14 laboratory technicians who will take specimens from suspected Ebola patients.

This was disclosed by the CHT head, Dr. Julius Garbo, during the recent County Ebola Task Force coordination meeting held Sinje Town, Garwula District.

He said the two laboratory technicians in the county will form part of the training in an effort to upgrade their professional skills.

Dr. Garbo said the training will be conducted by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in collaboration with international partners.

The Liberian medical practitioner said the training will also provide an opportunity for the trainees to better understand specimen taking from persons suspected of Ebola in their areas of assignment.

He said due to the absence of trained laboratory technicians in the Cape Mount, the county health team is always hiring laboratory technicians from Monrovia and other parts of the country.

He said kicking the Ebola disease out of the county requires the training of technicians for prompt response to cases to avoid possible spread of the virus.
