Just under two years ago Ebola was at its peak and Americans, along with the rest of the world, were terrified to travel, in fear of contacting the highly deadly disease.
Fast forward two years, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced Ebola, even in West African countries were the disease originated and was predominantly found, was no longer a concern to the general public’s health, but certain safety measurements must still be implemented.
Just a couple of months after releasing the above statement, a 30 year old women from Liberia (one of the West African Countries that got hit the hardest with the Ebola epidemic) died from contracting a new strand of the virus. The woman was taken to a hospital in the capital, Monrovia on Thursday but died before she arrived, according to both the World Health Organization and Liberia’s health ministry.
Metro UK also reported that a heath official said the woman had also tried to undergo treatment at a clinic in the suburb of Paynesville, located east of Monrovia. The health ministry said:
‘Her blood specimens were taken and tested positive of Ebola. Investigations are ongoing to identify the source of transmission and the line-listing of contacts. The Ministry of Health is encouraging the citizens not to panic in the wake of the new Ebola case.’
Investigation is now underway. According to BBC, more than 11,300 people died over the past two years in the world’s worst Ebola epidemic, almost all of them in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
