Fuamah District Down  In Ebola Cases
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

FUAMAH, October 28 (LINA) -The Medical Officer of the Bong Mines Hospital, Dr. Tabeh L. Freeman, has disclosed a significant reduction in Ebola cases in Fuamah District, Bong County, with no new cases recorded in nearly three weeks.

“Since October 3 when the County Health Team took 23 persons from Mawah Town, the epicenter of the disease in the district, we have not had a single case of the disease in Fuamah,” he noted.

Dr. Freeman said 14 persons had earlier died of the virus in a short period, while five confirmed cases were treated at the Bong County ETU (Ebola Treatment Unit).”

Freeman told the Liberia News Agency via mobile phone over the weekend that four houses were, however, still under quarantine in the district.

He cautioned residents that despite improvement in the Ebola situation, “building a complacent posture will prove dangerous as suspected and probable cases are still in some quarters.”

Meanwhile, Freeman has extolled the Bong County Health Team and Global Communities for making available an ambulance which, according to him, has eased transportation constraints in transferring Ebola patients to the ETU in Suakoko.

Recently, Global Communities, formerly CHF,  rented  a vehicle for use as an ambulance  by the County Health Team in Fuamah District.
