Washington : A 25-bed hospital, part of the US Defense Department''s Ebola response efforts, has officially opened in Liberia, the department''s spokesman Steven Warren said Monday.

"The 25-bed hospital, also known as the Monrovian Medical Unit, officially opened in Monrovia, capital of Liberia, and is fully manned by 65 public health service personnel," Xinhua quoted Warren as saying at a press conference. 

But the spokesman, however, noted that there is currently no patients at the facility.

According to him, the hospital is part of approximately 30 million dollars in program funding approved for DOD''s Ebola response efforts, including its delivery and payment for diagnostic equipment, supplies and training.

The official said the first Ebola Treatment Unit in Tubmanburg, located in western Liberia, is complete and is being transferred to non-governmental organisation officials Monday.

"As of this weekend, we now have over 2,000 personnel in Liberia helping with the crisis response to Ebola," Warren added.
