Last Friday was inaugurated in Monrovia, Liberia, a treatment center for Ebola built in collaboration with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and where will work Cuban doctors. Thus both countries come together to fight the epidemic.
The center, located in Congo Town, in the east of Monrovia, was inaugurated by the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. The inauguration was attended by US and United Nations officials, and the Cuban doctors.
The Monrovia center is one of the largest treatment centers in Liberia. It is designed to serve between 200 and 300 patients.
Along with Cuban professionals, will work the team that used to treat Ebola patients at JFK Medical Center, reported Assistant Minister of Health, Nyenswah Tolbert, who is in charge of the government's response to the virus.
