Liberia Records Three Fresh Ebola Cases

Liberia Records Three Fresh Ebola Cases

There has been three fresh confirmed cases of Ebola in Liberia just months after the West African country got freed of the virus, reports from the World Health Organisation (WHO) reveals.

Spokesperson for the WHO, Margaret Harris indicates that all patients, including a 10 year old boy from Paynesville have so far been isolated as six of the boy's relatives together with other high-risk contacts have been taken to an Ebola Treatment Unit in Paynesville.

Liberia remains one of the hardest hit countries in Africa's sub-region ever since the Ebola virus broke, with Sierra Leone and Guinea coming through as other unlucky states. So far, poor health systems in these regions have been, as part of others, linked to the deadly spread of the virus.
