New Ebola cases found once again in Liberia

The death toll from Ebola virus in Liberia is on the rise once again after three new confirmed cases were reported.

Earlier in May 2015, the World Health Organization (WHO) had declared the West African country Ebola free after no new cases were reported.

Liberia has accounted for more than 4,800 deaths since the outbreak, which began in 2014. The West African country was believed to have been more successful in eradicating Ebola compared to its neighbouring countries viz. Sierra Leone and Guinea, which were still reporting new cases in May, 2015.

As per WHO, the number of deaths from the Ebola epidemic exceeds 11,000. In Sierra Leone 3,903 have died and 2,386 have died in Guinea.
