Save The Children Building ETU In Kakata
By Richard Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent
 
KAKATA, September 22 (LINA) - Save the Children International (SCI) has begun the construction of an Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in Kakata, Margibi County.
 
The county is one of the hardest Ebola-hit areas, recording over 120 deaths, including over 24 health workers, since the disease was first reported in March in Liberia.

According to Save the Children International Field Operations Manager in Margibi County, Charles Sevee, the unit will accommodate 50 patients.

He put the cost of the ETU at a little over US$150,000 and said construction work on it will be completed in three weeks.
Mr. Sevee, however, clarified that Save the Children International was only constructing the Ebola Treatment Unit in Margibi County but will not be involved in its operation.

“Save the Children will ensure that the ETU under construction in Kakata meets international standard before turning it over to health authorities in Margibi County," Sevee said.
