Sierra Leone records zero new infections

from BBC

(elbcradio.com/Aug.18, 2015)- Reports say Sierra Leone has for the first time recorded zero new infections since the outbreak of Ebola in that country.

The BBC quotes the World Health Organization (WHO) as saying there were no new Ebola cases reported in Sierra Leone last week.

Sierra Leone was reporting more than 500 new cases a week during the height of the Ebola crisis, the BBC said.

Last week, for the first time since May last year, there were zero new cases, as Sierra Leonean authorities are warning against complacency.

The BBC also quotes Sierra Leone’s Director of the National Ebola Response Centre, OB Sisay, as saying this does not mean the country is Ebola free.
