29 ebola patients have reportedly fled isolation facility following an attack by Armed men. The armed men launched an attack at Ebola isolation ward in the Liberian capital Monrovia Saturday night, prompting 29 patients to flee the facility, witnesses said yesterday.
“They broke down the doors and looted the place. The patients all
fled,” said Rebecca Wesseh, who witnessed the attack and whose
report was confirmed by residents and the head of Health Workers
Association of Liberian, George Williams.
The Kenyan government at the weekend said it would bar passengers travelling from Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.
The suspension is effective midnight tomorrow for all ports of
entry for people travelling from or through the countries, said
Kenya’s Health Ministry. Nigeria was not included in the ban,
which also allows entry to health professionals and Kenyans
returning from those countries.
