GERLIB Clinic Sets Up Ebola Isolation Center
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, October 3 (LINA) - The GERLIB (German/Liberia) Clinic has established an isolation center for suspected Ebola patients at its facility in the
Monrovia suburb of Paynesville.

The 48-bed facility will keep patients showing signs and symptoms of the virus before they are transferred to Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs), according to Margret Gleraths-Nimene, President of GERLIB.

The Ebola isolated center will be dedicated shortly, she said.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Friday, Gleraths-Nimene added that this was intended to prevent the spread of the virus in the nearby communities.

She said the compartment, along with an ambulance and a vehicle for transporting the sick and dead from communities, arrived in the country from Germany early this week predicated upon a request made to a German NGO immediately after the closure of the clinic on August 1, 2014.

Gleraths-Nimene said the clinic was reopened on September 17 to continue its service to the Paynesville communities, adding that the staff are trained and provided protective equipment to ensure that they do not contract the Ebola
virus.

According to her, the GERLIB Clinic was established in 1985 to provide medical treatment for pregnant women and their new born babies free of
charge.

She said the clinic has treated several patients over the years.
