Grand Kru Records 10th COVID Case After Being Declared Free Of The Virus


  22 Juillet      6        Santé (7407),

   

BARCLAYVILLE, July 20 (LINA) – Grand Kru County has recorded it tenth confirmed Coronavirus cases after a Lab Technician at the  Dr. Dormu Nimely Maternity Hospital tested positive for the virus.

 

Some 32 of the high risk contacts are all health workers and cleaners, necessitating the closure of the facility and the Nemieh Clinic in Garraway Administrative District following another confirmed case of a female.

 

The National Incident Management System in Monrovia declared the County COVID-19 free on June 11, following months of no new confirmed case.

 

The declaration was made after the county discharged all 22 persons who were under precautionary observation.

 

Grand Kru County Health Officer, Dr. Sianna Jackson Mentoe, has indicated that there are about nine active confirmed cases in treatment centers in the county, while one person was treated an discharged from the treatment unit.

 

Dr. Mentoe told the Liberia News Agency over the weekend in a telephone interview that the health worker assigned at the Sasstown Health Center came in contact with other Lab Technicians who were part of a week-long capacity building workshop in Harper, Maryland County.

 

He added that the nine active cases are currently in isolation and undergoing intensive medical treatment, while contact tracing is ongoing in the county.

 

Dr. Mentoe revealed that the positive case from Garraway Wilsonville, who was on the run, was recently turned over to health authorities for treatment.

 

On Wednesday, July 15, the County Health Team announced that the Dr. Dormu Nimely Maternity Hospital and Nemieh Clinic in Garraway Administrative District would both be closed to the public, and would only accept emergency cases in the meantime.

 

The County Health Officer revealed that the system is currently challenged by the lack of adequate logistics to combat the virus, and that they are finding it extremely difficult to provide regular meals for the quarantined individuals and confirmed patients who are in isolation.

 

Meanwhile, Dr. Mentoe is appealing to the central Government to establish a voluntary testing facility in Barclayville to ensure the speedy testing of samples collected in the county.

 

She noted that the long wait in receiving test results often makes it difficult to continue holding symptomatic patients.

 

The CHO believes that a testing center in Grand Kru County would make residents to voluntarily turn up to be tested
