Ebola Resurfaces In Sierra Leone, Kills One

Less than 24hours that the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the West African Countries free of the most unprecedented and deadly Ebola virus, the epileptic has again claimed another life in Sierra Leone.
Officials in the country made this confirmation.
The country was declared free of the virus on 7 November, and the region as a whole was cleared when Liberia was pronounced Ebola-free on Thursday January 14, 2016.
Tests on a person who died in northern Sierra Leone proved positive; an Ebola test centre spokesman confirmed this to BBC.
The WHO has warned, however, that more flare-ups are expected.
The Sierra Leone death occurred earlier this week.
Information gathered revealed that the victim was a 22-year-old female student.
Reuters’ news agency cites a local charity saying that she went to hospital but was treated as an outpatient.
