“Authorities in the West African country are perplexed as to what could have caused the resurgence of the disease that is confirmed to have killed a 17-year-old on June 28.
The boy, who hails from Margibi country outside the country’s capital, Monrovia, died under unexplainable circumstances three days after falling ill. A post-mortem diagnosis revealed that he succumbed to the Ebola disease.
His death is the first since World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the country Ebola- free on May 9. On whether this outbreak could be ringing a knell for yet another full-scale outbreak of the disease, Dr Joa Ja’KkenoOkech-Ojony, a Ugandan epidemiologist and public health specialist leading the Ugandan team of specialists in Liberia says,“There is no need for alarm.”
“Meanwhile, health officials in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are investigating the possible outbreak of Ebola in Masambio village, according to Reuters.
It is reported that six hunters fell ill last week with symptoms of Ebola including diarrhoea, bloody urine and vomiting, after killing an antelope. Four of the hunters have since died.”
