Via the Daily Observer: Three Nurses Survive Ebola in Margibi. Excerpt:
Authorities in Margibi County say three nurses of the C.H. Rennie Hospital have triumphed over the deadly Ebola virus in the county. The three nurses were among 22 persons who tested positive with the virus and were taken to Monrovia for further medication.
After several treatments and tests, they were later diagnosed negative of the virus. Among the 22, 13 nurses have so far died of Ebola.
Speaking the Daily Observer in Kakata, the County Inspector Hon. Tarr N. Sackie said three nurses have been declared free of the virus and they (nurses) are to return home to live normal lives.
The Margibi County Inspector General named the three survivors as Mr. Lawrence Tumah, Lab Technician; Mr. Siafa Gbollie and Sumo Tokpah, all of C.H. Rennie Hospital in Margibi.
According to him, the news of the three nurses having tested negative and survived the deadly virus has given residents in the county more hope and confidence as opposed to the earlier belief that no one could survive the virus no matter what level of treatment its victim may receive.
