Via Politico, a July 15 report: 5 Ebola suspects on the run in Bo.
District medical officer in the southern city of Bo, Dr Alhaji Turay, has confirmed to journalists at an Ebola orientation training in the township that five suspected Ebola cases are on the run.
He said “the issue around those suspects is worrisome for the district”, adding that a man just died of the disease in Jembeh, along the Kenema/Bo highway.
Dr Turay said a surveillance team had been set up to monitor the households in respect of the health status of the other occupants who shared occupancy with the deceased Ebola victim.
He also stated that it was as a result of suspicion that the five suspected cases fled to different parts of the country. He bemoaned the “negative attitude” of suspected cases and warned that their flight could be risky and a reason for rapid spread of the disease across the country.
Among those suspected to be on the run were Senessie Konneh, Baindu Kamanda, Samuel Lamin, Moudy Konneh and Luya Brima, he announced, adding that they were all from the same Jembeh community in the Bo district.
