In West Africa, no other country has suffered more from Ebola than Liberia - ten thousand people had been infected from the virus whose infection rates peaked out just a few months ago.
This highly contagious infection challenged both the government and the many helpers:
Medical care and preventive health care in infrastructural weak areas, pastoral care, care of orphans and education about the distribution of the infection. In addition to the immeasurable human suffering, the resulting economic damage is certainly one of the major problems that needs to be overcome after the epidemic.
Ebola virus measures
To get the Ebola virus under control, several measures have been taken. In addition to the establishment of public hand washing and health care stations, the expansion of communication networks and many other assistance interventions, many aid organizations established L & F tank vehicles in order to dispose large amounts of infectious excrements to prevent the further spread of the Ebola virus.
L & F vehicles in Liberia
The L & F tankers that have been used for this purpose in Liberia, are characterized by a vacuum-operated tank with 9,000 liters capacity. The technical pressure or vacuum range is max. +/- 0.9 bar, the operating pressure +/- 0.7 bar. Operation occurs via the L & F central control panel which is installed on the rear of the vehicle in optimum work height.
All-clear in Liberia
On May 9 this year, there were good news: The World Health Organization (WHO) declared Liberia as being Ebola-free. The “all-clear” could be given after no new Ebola-cases have occurred at least within 42 days.
We are pleased that we could contribute to the coping of the Ebola crisis!
