Ebola: Nigerian medics deployed to Sierra Leone by Idowu Olabode : December 05, 2014, 03:38:56 PM
In a bid to help with the response tothe outbreak of the ravaging Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in some West African countries, about 100 medical workers are expected to depart Nigeria for Sierra Leone.

The BBC reports that the medical workers include doctors, scientists and hygienists, who have been trained by the medical aid agency, MSF.

Nigeria’s commitment is part of an African Union promise to send 1,000 medical workers to Ebola-hit areas by the end of this year.

The response came a day after residents in the Guinean capital, Conakry, protested about the construction of an Ebola treatment clinic in their district.

It is no more news that the Ebola outbreak has claimed about 6,000 lives in West Africa this year alone.

The medical workers from Nigeria are the first part of a contingent of about 250 specialists the West African country is deploying to the three countries worst hit by Ebola – Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.

The workers are expected to stay for between three and six months, Nigerian officials say.
