Paasewe, County Superintendent, also disclosed that local authorities in collaboration with the CHT, national and international partners have set up Ebola awareness and prevention measures to fight the virus.In a related development, the Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah said the government had sent a six-man technical team to the county to beef up the strength of the local Ebola Taskforce in eradicating the virus from the county.He said government’s decision to dispatch the team to the county was because of the constant outbreak of new Ebola cases there and the need for greater efforts to curb the virus.The six-man team will work with the CHT and local and international partners in fighting the further spread of the virus.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
