She observed that when people are quarantined within their community there is risk and temptation of movement to the nearest neighbor and friends but when isolated they would be safe from being infected.

The Magazine Wharf victims were the first to be quarantined at PTS II followed by nurses, doctors and other health workers from the Princess Christian Maternity Hospital (PCMH).

Mr. Garry Eversfield of DFID and Dr. Gunther Schramm of World Hunger Help (WHM) and Jochen Moringer of the same institution have been putting modalities in place to making sure that all quarantined victims on arrival at the centre are hospitably received and given the best reception and comfort to feel at home
