US$150k ETU Under Construction In Margibi
By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, October 9, (LINA) –Construction work has commenced on a 150-Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in Kakata, Margibi County at a cost of US$150,000.

The project, sponsored by Save the Children International (SCI), began Wednesday, October 8, following final arrangements with health authorities and the administration of Margibi County, according to the Liberia News Agency.

 

The SCI Field Operations Manager in Margibi County, Charles Sevee, told the Liberia News Agency in an interview Thursday that construction work will be completed in two weeks.

Meanwhile, according to Sevee, SCI has also started setting up Community Care Centers in  Margibi County with the first two centers located at the Kakata and Dolo’s Town health posts.

He said Margibi County is a major priority for SCI, and it will ensure that other health facilities in the county are up and running to enable the county health team adequately address other health-related matters.

Meanwhile, Margibi County Acting Health Officer, Dr. Adolphus Yeiah, has commended SCI and USAID for their timely intervention in helping to build an Ebola Treatment Unit for the people of Margibi County.

Yeiah said he was “very much delighted” because the ETU will alleviate the strain in referring Ebola patients to treatment centers in Monrovia.


Yeiah said with the ETU, the County Ebola Task Force and health team will be in a better position to rapidly respond to the needs of patients.
