World News Organizations are reporting the death of a 22 year old female from Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) at Magburaka District Hospital in Sierra Leone. Medical officials at the hospital find her death concerning because she did not display the "typical symptoms" of a person infected with EVD.
The National Coordinator of the Office of National Security,Ishmael Tarawally, stated that the victim's contacts and places visited would be investigated for additional cases of Ebola.
These press releases seems to be a recurring theme that is happening all too often in West Africa. A country believes that they are finally "Ebola Free", only to receive the dreaded news of yet another one of their countrymen infected with Ebola. These continued sporadic outbreaks provide undeniable proof that there is still a need for a widely dispersible preventative vaccine and affordable treatment for the Ebola virus. Many hope that the International desire to implement these anti-infective policies remains steadfast.
