Sierra Leone officials have confirmed a death from Ebola, hours after the World Health Organization declared the latest West Africa outbreak over. The country was declared free of the virus on 7th November, and the region as a whole was cleared when Liberia was pronounced Ebola-free on Thursday. An Ebola test centre spokesman told tests on a person who died in northern Sierra Leone proved positive. The patient had died in the Tonkolili district. He had travelled there from Kambia, close to the border with Guinea. The WHO has warned, however, that more flare-ups are expected.
