Ebola's return to Liberia

Is there no end to the Ebola pestilence that threaten every aspect of life in West Africa and the world? 

Today, Reuters released the mortifying news of a Liberian teenager's death from Ebola. This story comes after the World Health Organization(WHO) announced that Liberia was "Ebola-Free" since it had gone more than 42 days without any new infections.

In a news conference, Deputy Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah declared that government authorities have started tracing people that may have come into contact with deceased and that there is no need to panic. 

USA Today reports that Dr. Nyenswah, who headed Liberia's Ebola response during the outbreak, stated that health workers are tracking 27 people who had contact with the teenager to see if they develop the disease. While Minister Nyenswah display's confident in Liberia's ability to contain the new outbreak, his prediction comes as many healthcare volunteers and organizations have either left or significantly downscaled their presence.

The goal of the Ebola Recovery Conference, held on April 17, 2015, was to build global support for the countries most affected by Ebola. Chaired by World Bank President Dr. Kim, his highlighted goals were to sustain zero new Ebola cases, jumpstart a recovery and build more resilient health systems and economies. Ebola's reincarnation may have produced ramifications, that many believe have yet to be fully realized. The devastation of the healthcare network's for Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea will take years if not decades to recover. With Liberia's new Ebola disclosure and Sierra Leone and Guinea still actively trying to contain the epidemic, many West Africans find it difficult to envision a starting point to "recovery."
