Sierra Leone Officials Hopeful Country’s Ebola Outbreak Over After Nearly 4K Deaths

The Guardian: Ebola in Sierra Leone: after 4,000 deaths, outbreak all but over
“The long-running Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone is all but over after nearly 13,500 cases and almost 4,000 deaths, those fighting the disease believe. The last case in Sierra Leone was an eight-month-old child, who was hospitalized nearly two weeks ago and died four days later. … None [of the quarantined 29 high-risk contacts] have so far shown signs of illness…” (Boseley, 8/20).
