By Robert Dixon\LINA

MONROVIA, November 21 (LINA) - Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has dedicated a 10-bedroom Ebola Transit Center it constructed at the Redemption Hospital in New Kru Town on Bushrod Island in Monrovia.

The facility will reduce overcrowding at Ebola Treatment Centers in Monrovia, according to MSF Field Coordinator Sebastian Stew.

Speaking at the dedicatory ceremony, Stew said suspected Ebola patients will be tested at the center after which they will be transferred to Ebola Treatment Units for treatment if proven positive.

He stated further that if the test results prove to be ordinary illnesses, the patients will stay at the center for three days after which they will be sent to health facilities for treatment.

In remarks at the ceremony, the Medical Director of the Redemption Hospital, Dr. Mohammed Sankoh, lauded MSF for constructing the facility and promised to collaborate with them to ensure that the objectives of the center are achieved.

Dr. Sankoh then appealed to residents of the New Kru Town Community and surrounding areas to take advantage of the opportunity and carry their sick relatives and friends to the center.
