As more than 2,400 workers in the West African country of Liberia struggle to care for the virus, they have become the frontline of a growing number of American efforts to help the people who have been most affected by the pandemic.
The workers are working alongside the Liberian health care workers in their effort to help them stay safe and well as support their families and friends in the United States, said Robert M. Hennigan, director of the Office of Global Health and Humanitarian Affairs at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
He said Ebola workers have made a significant contribution to the fight against the virus.
“Ebola workers are in Liberia as a way to help Liberians stay healthy and to help with the care of their families, friends, and neighbors,” he said.
“This is the best thing that can happen to Liberia, and they have been amazing and are helping Liberians.”
The workers in Liberia are among the more than 3,000 American volunteers working to combat Ebola in Liberia.
They are part of a group that has been working with Liberia’s government and health workers to identify potential sites for a large Ebola treatment facility that the Liberians have been seeking for more than a year.
The Ebola Care Workers Association of Liberia (ECMU), a group of Liberian workers and health care professionals who have volunteered to help treat the country’s Ebola patients, has set up a task force to coordinate the development of a treatment facility.
It is expected to present its plan to Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at the beginning of November, said M.S., an ECMU volunteer.
“We want to be sure the facility is ready and will work to bring it into operation,” he added.
A hospital in Liberia with the capacity to treat as many as 400 Ebola patients is being built at the site of a former sugar plantation that is now being converted into a hotel.
The hotel will be open to the public for the first time this year.
Liberia is now the only country in the world to have had a case of Ebola and the country has become the first country in Africa to see its Ebola death toll rise from 5,400 in August to more than 6,000 today.
But a new Ebola outbreak in Liberia, as well as the deaths of about 80 Liberians a day, has prompted more American health care experts to turn their attention to helping Liberia’s workers.
While many Liberians and American healthcare professionals are aware of the threat posed by Ebola, they are not aware of how to care and care for Ebola patients and their families.
This is why we have been working to educate Liberians, especially our ECMUs, about Ebola, said Dr. Michael J. Feltman, director for the Department of Public Health, Public Health Research and Policy at the University of Kentucky.
“There are a lot of things that we can do that can help,” he told ABC News.
Dr. Flemming also said he believes that Liberia’s efforts to educate its workforce about Ebola and its potential effects on their health care providers, including those who have trained in the country, will pay dividends for the health of the country and its people.
Liberia has a population of nearly 40 million, with more than 10 million people living in the affected area.
More than half the population of Liberia live below the poverty line.
About 7,500 people are known to have died of Ebola, including 2,000 in Sierra Leone.
Ebolias infection is spread by contact with bodily fluids from an infected person.
