Sierra Leone set free 55 People from Ebola quarantine

Only four people remained in quarantine in Sierra Leone on Wednesday after 55 others were declared free of the Ebola virus and released from hospital, officials and medical sources said.

But medics were urgently seeking to contact around 50 others for testing, most of them from the northern town of Kambia, health ministry spokesperson Harold Williams said.

Sierra Leone was forced to re-open its Ebola treatment centres and relaunch screening systems, including checkpoints on motorways, late last month after two new cases of the tropical virus were confirmed.

"Forty-eight people are still classified as missing and 18 of them are high risk," he said, appealing for them to come forward.

"We are only concerned about whether they are infected so that we can treat them to avoid any possible spreading of the virus," he said.

The remaining four people in quarantine were scheduled to be released on February 11.
