Ethiopian health worker’s team arrived on Tuesday to join Government’s plan to eliminate the outbreak of Ebola before Christmas.
The team includes 87 doctors and nurses who will join African Union (AU) to oust the worst outbreak of Ebola in the history which already has taken 6800 lives in Liberia and adjoining Guinea and Sierra Leone.
The team will join the 175 Nigerian paramedic staff deployed in Liberia and Sierra Leone earlier this month.
Major-General Julius Oketta, who heads the AU Ebola mission, said “The aim of the AU is to support the government on the progress so far made. We want to expand on it, to make sure that the community also supports it”.
Efforts of AU are mainly concerned in Montserrado County, a county in the northwestern portion of the West African nation of Liberia.
A sharp decline in the infections has provided a hope that may be the outbreak of the Ebola is coming to an end.
Liberia’s assistant health minister Tolbert Nyenswah said “We are still having between five to 10 cases per day in Liberia, and that is huge but the campaign, getting to zero before Christmas, continues”.
