WHO Trains 82 Community Health Volunteers In Maryland County

By John N. Bropleh Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, November 15 (LINA)- The World Health Organization (WHO) has trained 82 community health volunteers and district health officers in Maryland County to serve in the areas of contact tracing and active case search management of Ebola cases.

The Maryland County Health Officer, Dr. Odell Kumeh, who disclosed this to the Liberia News Agency Thursday, said the trainees will be deployed in the six health districts of Maryland County.

The 82  who were recruited from the four administrative districts of the county, include  six district health officers and 55 general community health volunteers.

Dr. Kumeh made the disclosure during the regular Ebola meeting held Thursday at the county administration building in Harper, Maryland County.

According to Kumeh, the training of these health workers was WHO’s way of supporting the efforts of the county health team in the fight against the Ebola virus disease in the county.

She commended WHO for conducting the training.

Meanwhile a man who was recently quarantined on suspicion of being an Ebola disease carrier has been released and reintegrated into his community.

 Mr. James Tuklo was placed in a holding center in Pleebo where he successfully completed the 21 days observation period.

Dr. Kumeh who made the disclosure Thursday at the Ebola regular meeting, said Tuklo was given food and non-food items and some money to return home and reunite with family.

Dr. Kumeh has meanwhile cautioned residents of Maryland County to continue to adhere to measures put in place by health practitioners to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.
