Bomi Health Admin, Family Test Positive for Ebola


first_imgCredible reports reaching the Daily Observer from Tubmanburg, Bomi County, have revealed that the government-run hospital in Bomi County has been shut down.According to our sources, this is largely because Mr. Sando Sirleaf, the County Health Services Administrator (CHSA), and his family of 10 have been tested positive with the deadly Ebola virus, which is ravishing the nation.One of our sources, who is very close to the hospital, the county’s only referral hospital and major health facility, however, clarified that the hospital’s doors have not been totally closed, but that all of the patients, including admitted ones, have fled.Our source also said the Out-Patient Department (OPD) for routine treatments for malaria and other “common sicknesses,” is also empty, as out-patients have stopped coming to the hospital.According to our source, who has asked to remain anonymous, “Even most of the nurses have now left the hospital because they are afraid for their lives. This is why I said the hospital has now closed.”Our source further disclosed that on Sunday, July 27, the only two out-patients that went to the hospital were the last two remaining family members of the county’s Health Service Administrator, Mr. Sirleaf.The Daily Observer learned  that Mr. Sirleaf and nine members of his family were brought to Monrovia for screening after his son, Sando Sirleaf, Jr., head of the Gayah Hill Health Center, had tested positive with the Ebola virus, which is taking the lives of people every day.Following the screening, our Health Correspondent was reliably told that eight tested positive, are now isolated and are being given supported treatment by health workers. It was the last two, who were confirmed Sunday, as also having come down with the virus.Another source, who is also a Sirleaf, but no relation to Sando, said he is a very good friend of the Bomi Health Service Administrator’s entire family. This source disclosed to us that it was through the auspices of Mr. Sando Sirleaf that the Ghana-based Multi-TV came to Liberia and opened one of its overseas offices here in Monrovia.Also speaking to the Observer, however, Dr. Bernice Dahn, Liberia’s Chief Medical Officer and Deputy Health Minister for Health Services, said that the hospital has not been shut down.With what is happening in the country, she explained, people are just afraid to go to the health facility which, the CMO said, is the wrong decision to make.(For the latest news and updates, follow us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Liberian-Observer-Online/42279623238.)Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
