US researchers believe they may have pinpointed the Achilles heel of the Ebola virus, which could hold the key to developing an effective preventative vaccine, a study reported Tuesday.
Research published in the latest issue of mBio, the online journal of the American Society for Microbiology, said scientists believed a protein called Niemann-Pick C1 (NPC1) was critical for Ebola to infect a host.
In the week to 17 May 2015, there were six confirmed Ebola cases, a considerable increase comparing to the previous week. Five out of the six new cases came from known contacts. Only one case come from an unknown source (Western Urban).

Meeting with over 20 survivors at State House Monday 25 May, barely a year since the outbreak, President Ernest Bai Koroma assured survivors of the dreadful Ebola virus disease of government’s readiness to provide them with the necessary social services till their lives return to normal.
He said when the epidemic was reported this time last year, people received the news with mixed feelings and interpretations, saying that the issue of denial resulted to the death of considerable number of people – 3,000 have died so far.
