According to Minister Kargbo, some dead victims brought the deaths upon themselves by crossing the border into Guinea to attend funerals.
Minister Kargbo made these statements at an emergency press conference hosted by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation in collaboration with Ministry of Information and Communication.
According to the Awareness Times, the government has so far revealed that “only one” test sample has proven positive for Ebola virus. They also attacked “untrue reports” on social media. The government also claimed that the person who proved positive had, in the words of our officials, been “feeling better” and “discharged” from a local health centre.
Sierra Leone has reportedly been the site of new cases of the disease caused by the deadly ebola virus. The health ministry has appealed to the public to remain “vigilant” and reaffirmed an earlier ban on trips to attend funerals in Guinea, the epicentre of the west African outbreak.
