By Solomon T. Gaye
The Ganta Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) over the weekend discharged 7 suspected Ebola patients in the commercial city of Ganta.
Speaking to the RK FM Community Radio Station, Dr. Paye Gbeanmie, said that 7 of the patients discharged from the ETU came down with suspected symptoms of the deadly Ebola virus and were treated for few days before they were discharged.
Speaking in a separate interview, the Ganta United Methodist Hospital Administrator, Victor Taryor, said that Ebola virus is decreasing in the county but warned the citizens to continue to observe the preventive measures put in place by the Ministry of Health and the WHO.
Mr. Taryor further revealed the decline of the deadly Ebola virus in Nimba and added that since October 25, there has been no new report of any suspected Ebola cases at the Ganta ETU.
Ebola in early September and October 2014 killed more than 75 people in various communities in the commercial City of Ganta and left thousands of citizens homeless in several districts in the county.
Early October 2014, Ganta most especially, Small Ganta and the LPRC Community turned into Ghost Town due to fear of the Ebola virus in the country.
Thousands of the citizens who escaped from Ganta took refuge in various towns and villages in and around the county.
Meanwhile the administrator of the Ganta ETU, Dr Paye Gbeanmie has warned all citizens in the county to continue observing the preventive measures because Ebola is indeed REAL.
