W/S Press conference SOT, Michael Traut, Brigadier general and education manager of the Education force (German): "One course targets medical staff in particular: doctors and medical treatment staff, who will work directly with patients. A second course, which you will also see, is designed for supporting staff who will work with us and support the treatment and the treatment processes. The two groups are designed differently, as support has another focus than medical personnel. Yet, there is a very significant point which they have in common, and we have to stick to our responsibility in front of our volunteers by making the handling of protective equipment and working in infectious environments an essential topic to all of our trainings."

Two teams of medical helpers will be deployed by the German armed forces (Bundeswehr): one strictly for medical services and the other for a support roles, Brigadier General and Education Manager of the Education force Michael Traut said at a press conference in Appen, Thursday. Although support and medical crews have a different focus in their training, working in infectious environments and proper use of protective gear are essential topics in both training courses.
The Bundeswehr will send volunteers to the Ebola-struck country of Liberia to help fighting the Ebola virus. Over 2,000 German personnel are being sent fight the outbreak.
