Supt. Solo Offers to Transport The Sick To Tappita Hospital

By Chris T. Nyenapee, Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

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.
