Sierra Leone News: 28 people survive Ebola in Salone

The Bo District Medical Officer Dr Alhaji S. Turay has told Journalists that “the people of Sierra Leone have got some good news to celebrate about Ebola.” He made this disclosure to Journalists and the 11 Members of Parliament from the Bo District at the Endemic Disease Control office on Wednesday July 2.
Ever since the outbreak of Ebola, he explained that out of the 433 Screened Ebola cases, 211 have been confirmed positive of the dreadful disease. Out of the 211, Kailahun he expressed has 165; Kenema has 42; Kambia 1; Port Loko 2 and Bo 1.
And out of the 211 total infected cases within the country, 67, he revealed, have died of the disease.
Kailahun he narrated has recorded 57 deaths with the remaining 10 deaths happening in Kenema.
The 28 people that have survived the terrible disease he explicated did so after having been put on “supportive treatment” at the Government Hospital in Kenema which he over emphasized was the only Hospital in Sierra Leone to diagnose and treat Ebola.
“The 28 people were put on supportive treatment and they have survived,” Dr Turay stated. This he said was “good news to everybody concerned.”
Meanwhile, he further stated that there were still 45 people admitted with Ebola at the Government Hospital in Kenema.
He further revealed that at the newly established Ebola Tent Treatment Camp in Kailahun, 13 people were still admitted.
