Bomi Citizens Concerned About Deaths, Rejection Of Patients At  ETU

By David Pamas Seedee/LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, December 9 (LINA) - Citizens of Bomi County are calling on the County Health Team (CHT) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to pay more attention to the running of the Ebola

Treatment Unit (ETU) in the county.

The citizens said since the official opening of the ETU on November 10 this year, the county is yet to release another new survivor from the ETU apart from the 20 Survivors that were released from the Community

Care Center.

The citizens said they are disappointed about the reported deaths of seven persons from the ETU and the consistent rejection of patients by doctors and nurses assigned at the center.

The citizens made the call recently in Tubmanburg at the Bomi County Task Force Ebola Meeting.

They said it was regrettable to hear that the death rate at the ETU was increasing and that  sick people brought for treatment at the unit are being rejected.

Responding to the citizens’ concerns, the Supervisor of the ETU, Dr. Peter Wilson, said a decision has been reached by their heads to use only 50 beds at every ETU in the country, including the one in Bomi County.

According to him, the 12 patients currently at the ETU will be the only patients at the unit for now until a decision is reached by their bosses for additional beds to be provided.

Dr. Wilson has meanwhile called on the government and international partners to provide additional training for doctors, nurses and other workers at the unit, to protect them from being infected with the

disease.
