Gov’t Dedicates 50-Bed ETU In Grand Cape Mount

MONROVIA, December 31 (LINA) -The Liberian Government has dedicated a 50-bed Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in Grand Cape Mount County in an effort to strengthen the county’s fight against the Ebola disease.

Kenyan doctor and Medical Coordinator of the ETU located in Sinje, David Wasambla, said the construction of the ETU in the county is a bold step forward and a major effort to bring relief to the people of Grand Cape Mount County.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the ETU Monday, Wasambla said the ETU will also put an end to the movement of patients from Cape Mount to other parts of the country.

He emphasized the need for people to be on the alert and be consistent in adhering to preventive measures so that the county can overcome the scourge of the virus.

Speaking on behalf of the government, the head for the Incident Management System (IMS) and Assistant Health Minister for Preventive Services, Tolbert Nyenswah, called on citizens of the county to utilize the ETU to ensure that the county is free from Ebola.

Nyenswah said although there is absolutely no doubt that Ebola will be eradicated from Liberia, Liberians must take charge of the fight to guarantee their own freedom.

He then thanked the county health team and partners for scaling up response efforts to battle the Ebola virus.

The Sinje ETU was funded by the US Government and built through the efforts of the US Department of Defense (DOD) and Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) and will be managed by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
