Woman dies from Ebola in S Leone
02 Sep 2015 07:07
Fifty people have been placed in quarantine in northern Sierra Leone after the death of a middle-aged woman from the Ebola virus, in a setback for the country's bid to gain Ebola-free status.
"We are conducting an epidemiological investigation to trace the extent of the transmission," Ibrahim Sesay of the National Ebola Response Centre (NERC) told a local radio station.
The woman who died was sick for five-ten days without the authorities being alerted.
Given 50 people have been identified as at high-risk "we should not be surprised if we see new cases coming out," from the new case, identified in the village of Sella Kafta in the northern district of Kambia, Mr Sesay said.
