Suspected Death From Ebola In Sierra-Leone

A woman in Sierra Leone may have died from Ebola, officials said Thursday, just hours after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared an end to an epidemic of the disease.

The female student took ill in the northern village of Bamoi Luma near the Guinean border and died soon after, with an initial swab testing positive for Ebola, a senior health ministry official told AFP.

"Complete findings will be made known to the public by tomorrow (Friday)," he said, adding that further tests were under way.
