Estonia sending disinfectants to stop the spread of Ebola ({{commentsTotal}})

In cooperation with the United Kingdom, Estonia is sending hand sanitizer and antibacterial liquid soap to Sierra Leone to prevent the further spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa. The disinfectants will be introduced at Ebola treatment and prevention centers located in Sierra Leone.

According to Minister of Foreign Affairs Keit Pentus-Rosimannus, the disinfectants sent from Estonia will help create a safer environment for all the volunteers who care for patients at the centers, as well as for all of those coming to the centers seeking help. "This year, Estonia has contributed 370,000 euros to the fight against Ebola," she said.

The World Health Organization reports that as of the end of November a total of 15,935 cases of Ebola have been registered and of those, 5,689 cases ended in death.

The Estonian government funded the purchase of the products with 40,000 euros, which will be bought from the Estonian-British company Chemi-Pharm.

In total, Estonia has contributed 370,000 euros to the fight against Ebola this year.
