By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, September 26 (LINA) - The First Vice President of the Liberia Post-Graduate Medical College (LPGMC), Dr. Robert Kpoto, has said more than 3,000 people have been infected with Ebola since the outbreak of the disease in Liberia.

Dr. Kpoto said of this number of infections, the WHO statistics indicate that between 1,780 to 2,000 people have died so far from Ebola in Liberia, which is almost 56 percent, adding that Holding Centers in Montserrado County have now recorded the highest rate of the virus.

Dr. Kpoto made the statement Thursday at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism regular Ebola press briefing on Capitol Hill.

He indicated that the statistics also show that Lofa County has registered the second highest rate with 765 reported infected, Margibi County is third with 551 infected, Bong County with 275 infected and Nimba County with 243. 

He stressed that it is critical to remove sick people from the various communities swiftly to prevent the rapid spread of the disease in the society.

Kpoto pointed out that LPGMC is working along with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to carry out its normal health services across the country through building the capacity of health workers about the deadly disease both locally and internationally.
