The Chinese construction company CNQC, building an Ebola Treatment Unit at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium in Paynesville, is expected to be officially turnover for dedication today.
A local senior staff of the Chinese construction company, Amadou Kamara, told reporters Monday that the ETU, to be manned by Chinese Doctors, is equipped with highly functional and supporting facilities.
Kamara said the 100-bed hospital is expected to be manned by at least, 160 Specialized Medical personnel from China, in collaboration with their Liberian counterparts.
According to him, it will be very exciting that the ETU constructed by the Chinese Government has been completed to join the fight against the deadly Ebola Virus under the joint effort of the Chinese Peacekeeping Engineers and CNQC.
He expressed satisfaction over the level of cordiality among local staff and their Chinese counterparts. Kamara said despite the slow pace in the country’s economy due to the widespread Ebola, CNQC has never relented in paying them their regular salaries.
CNQC, a major Chinese Construction Company in the country has undertaken several major construction projects, including the new Ministry of Health in Congo Town, and Grand Royal Hotel, among others.
