The EOC is also looking at relocating the treatment center currently being constructed at the Laka community for Western Area to Kerry town.
This decision by the EOC to move the treatment centers is as a result of Presidential Task force instructions that all Ebola treatment centers be relocated to communities away from where people dwell or reside, this will also include new treatment centers to be constructed in other districts across the country.
