ZWEDRU CITY, Feb 18 (LINA) - As the health workers' strike continues nation-wide, Grand Gedeh County Superintendent Peter L. Solo has offered to provide fuel to transport patients from the county to Tappita Hospital in Nimba County to seek medical treatment.
According to a press release issued in Zwedru Monday, Superintendent Solo’s offer followed an hour-long meeting with health workers at his administration building in Zwedru.
At the meeting attended by health workers, national security agencies, UNMIL Civil Affairs Section and other stakeholders including the NRC, IRC and TITATEN, all agreed to lend support by providing ambulances when the need arises during the strike, while other promised to contribute fuel.
During the meeting, the head of the aggrieved health workers, Kadarker Noah, expressed concern about the dilemma that health workers are facing, but added that there is nothing they can do locally as the strike action is nation-wide.
According to the LINA correspondent, normal activities at the MTM Hospital in Zwedru came to halt Monday as health centers in the capital Zwedru and other parts of the county remained closed.
The administrator of the MTM Hospital told LINA that all patients have been discharged and that there was no emergency case up to the time of this report.
