Ebola Cases at Low Point

As of mid-August, weekly reports of new Ebola cases were as low as they have been since March of 2014, with only a single case in each of the last two weeks. Praise God! However, one of those new cases was in Tonkolili, a district that had not had a case of Ebola in 150 days. Unrelenting vigilance will be critical if the country is to fully rid itself of this disease. The World Health Organization reports 13,470 confirmed cases and 3,951 confirmed deaths from the outbreak in Sierra Leone.
