Bomi To Host Western Liberia ETU

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, September 20 (LINA) -Heads of the health teams in Bomi, Cape Mount and Gbarpolu counties have agreed to jointly operate a temporary Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) in Tubmanburg, Bomi County.

The disclosure was made by the head of the Grand Cape Mount County Health Team and Coordinator of the joint health team, Dr. Loraine Cooper, at the just-ended planning meeting to decommission the ETU in Sinje, Garwula District, Grand Cape Mount County.

She said the three western region counties have decided to run the temporary ETU to combat the virus in case of resurgence.

Dr. Cooper also disclosed that the joint health team has selected surveillance officers in districts, towns and villages across the region to monitor and report any suspected Ebola case.

She admonished citizens of the three counties to continue to observe the Ebola preventive measures outlined by health authorities because the three counties share common borders with Sierra Leone and Guinea which are still reporting fresh cases of Ebola.
