Ebola Disease Makes a Comeback in Liberia

May 9th 2015, World Health Organization officials declared the country of Liberia in West Africa to be Ebola-free. The announcement was made following a 42-day period during which no new cases of people infected with the deadly virus were reported in this corner of the world.

Less than two months later, however, the Ebola virus made a comeback in Liberia. On June 29, a 17-year-old boy was confirmed to have died after having contracted the disease. Soon enough, health officials zoomed in on two other cases of people infected with the virus.

These two latest Ebola patients are now in isolation at a treatment center. They were among the 200 or so people who came into contact with the 17-year-old victim not long before his death and whom health officials are now closely monitoring for signs of infection.

?The investigation revealed that close to 200 people had been in contact with the young man while he had symptoms of Ebola and these people are now being closely monitored,? specialists with the World Health Organization write in a report.

?Two of those people have developed symptoms and have tested positive for Ebola virus. Both of these people are being treated in an Ebola treatment center,? they go on detail. As for the teenager, it is unclear where he might have come into contact with the Ebola virus.
