Malaria Cases On Increase At GUMH
By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, September 10 (LINA) – The Ganta United Methodist Hospital (GUMH) Chief Administrator has disclosed that the hospital has received more malaria cases than other sicknesses in recent times.

Patrick Mator said about 60 percent of the total number of sicknesses reported at the hospital in the last six months are malaria and malaria-related, especially among children.

Making the disclosure in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at his office in Ganta recently, Mator also identified Typhoid and Lassa Fever as sicknesses that are mostly reported at the hospital.

Mator attributed the increase in malaria cases, especially among children, to failure by parents to adhere to preventive measures outlined by healthcare workers.

He named failure to clean surroundings, sleep under treated mosquito nets and delay in taking children to health centers for treatment, as some of the measures that are ignored by parents.
