Staff at Island Clinic wash clothes of health workers after they have gone into the Ebola Treatment Unit

Monrovia, Liberia - September 22, 2014: Washing is a vital part of the operation of the Ebola Treatment Unit at Island Clinic in Monrovia. All scrubs worn under PPEs and shoes must be washed thoroughly in chlorine water and then with soap. Island Clinic opened on Sunday. Within 1 day it is already at capacity at more than 150 patients. There are still more on the way. Approximately 100 Ebola patients were moved from nearby Redemption Hospital. The facility was setup by the WHO and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Liberia in response to the surge of patients needing an Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU). USAID has provided 2 generators and other supplies to equip the facility with life saving care. Photo by Morgana Wingard
