In less than three months since the outbreak of Ebola in Liberia, there has been official records of the death of a 15-year-old boy who tested positive and died later on Monday November 24th at a treatment center in Monrovia.
Reports from the World Health Organisation reveals that mother and siblings of the teenage boy have been admitted at the treatment center for monitoring as spokesperson of Liberia's health ministry, Sorbor George reveals much investigations are also been made into all close contacts he has had with friends and family.
In the meantime, civil society groups are stepped up their campaign to get volunteers to be vaccinated against the disease in a joint US-Liberia Ebola trial.
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.
