Grand Gedeh Records Increase In Number Of Patients At Health Facilities

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, December 24 (LINA) –The Grand Gedeh office of the  Ministry of Health (MOH)  has reported a dramatic increase in the intake of patients at health facilities across the county.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency recently in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County  MOH Chief Administrator Mrs. Eugenia Huntington, attributed the increase in the number of patients at medical facilities to the rapid decline in the number of new Ebola cases.

Huntington pointed out that during the peak of the Ebola outbreak, people from across the county including health workers, abandoned all the nineteen public health facilities in Grand Gedeh that provided delivery, emergency and out-patient services to patients in the county.

She told LINA that the increase in the number of patients at public health care facilities demonstrates renewed confidence in the county's health delivery system. She stressed the need to respond to this renewed confidence by providing the necessary services from diagnosis to the dispensing of drugs for treatment.

Meanwhile, the MOH administrator has lauded the government and its partners for providing an ambulance and two pick-ups to the county health team to help fight the virus in the county, noting that the pick-ups are being used to deliver Ebola related materials to areas that are inaccessible.
