According to Mr. Jallah, coordinated information reaching his office from the various Ebola Treatment Units, (ETUs), indicates that across the country, "there are less than 400 people who are in treatment."
"Therefore," Jallah said, "there are more than 300 ETUs that are empty, which means they are without people who are being treated for the virus." The latest report has also made it clear that decisions and recommendations approved by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and implemented by the Liberian government have worked to reduce increased infection from the insidious disease, Mr. Jallah said.
"All of us should continue with the measures outlined in this fight," he said, "because the less than 400 people being treated in the various ETUs is still a high number," he noted.
With particular reference to the six hardest hit counties of Montserrado, Bomi, Bong, Lofa, Nimba and Margibi, Jallah said, "Lofa County, particularly Foya and Barkedu, have registered less than ten persons in treatment in the last couple of weeks."
At the peak of its infection, Jallah said, nearly eighty people were admitted at the ETU in Foya, with most of the cases coming from Quarduboni.
