Via the Ministry of Health & Social Welfare: March 26, 2014 Press Release on the outbreak of EBOLA virus.
The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare would like to inform the public that the number of suspected viral hemorrhagic fever cases remains at six with four deaths as of March 26,2014.
The two cases and one death reported from Curran Hospital in Zorzor yesterday did not meet the case definition of viral hemorrhagic fevers. Hence, this has reduced the cumulative number of suspected cases and deaths.
Meanwhile, the MOHSW continues to monitor and investigate cases of suspected viral hemorrhagic fever in the country. Suspected cases reported earlier were investigated and verified to ensure that they meet the standard definition of viral hemorrhagic fevers.
