Ebola Re-Emerges in West Africa


Health officials in Monrovia have reiterated calls asking Liberians to not panic in the wake of the re-emergence of the deadly Ebola (EVD) virus.

Mr. Torbort Nyensuah, Head of the Ebola Incident Management Team, said health workers are fully capable of getting the fresh outbreak under control.

Nyensuah, Deputy Minister of Health, disclosed that two confirmed cases have so far been reported in the latest outbreak, one of which was pronounced dead.

He said the current confirmed case is a five-year-old child, who is the son of the woman that died of the virus.

The health official also told reporters that the woman, who died of the EVD, was transferred from the M. Watta Kamara Clinic in Jacob’s Town in Paynesville.

Deputy Health Minister Tolbert Nyensuah wants people to continue the preventive measures set out by health authorities as the best means of once again chasing Ebola out of Liberia.
