A fresh case of the deadly Ebola Virus has once again being reported in Liberia, one of the worst hit countries by the recent outbreak.
The deputy health minister confirmed that a 19yr old man died of the virus and there is a possibility that he had infected his friends and relatives. The deceased has been buried and family members quarantined in order to stop the spread of the deadly virus.
This is a sad occurrence as Liberia was declared Ebola free by the WHO on May 9th; but I’m hopeful that the Liberian government will do everything necessary to prevent the spread of the deadly virus which claimed a total of 11,207 lives during the deadly outbreak that hit Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.
