Liberia calls for calm after new Ebola case

ebolaLiberian authorities on Saturday called for calm following the discovery of a fresh case of the deadly Ebola virus, more than two months after the epidemic had been declared over in the country.

The latest victim was a 30-year-old woman who died on Thursday while being transferred to hospital in the capital Monrovia.

The country’s health ministry put out a statement urging citizens “not to panic in the wake of the new Ebola case.” There was no news on the origins of the latest case, after Liberia was declared Ebola-free, for a second time, in January.
