The leaders of Sierra Leone and Liberia on Friday 6 May, 2016, called for more collaboration to end Ebola in their respective countries.
The call came following a joint communique signed by both President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma and his Liberian counterpart, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf who was on a one-day working and friendly visit to Sierra Leone.
Freetown, Aug. 24, 2015 (MOHS) – The Guinean Ebola Ring Vaccine Trial has been extended to Sierra Leone as a move to stop the transmission across the region.
The Ebola outbreak has substantially stunted development progress in the three countries. As shown in Box 1, the real growth rates in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) forecast for 2014 dropped in Guinea to an estimated 1.1 percent from 4.5 percent, in Liberia to an estimated 0.7 per cent from 5.9 percent, and in Sierra Leone to an estimated 7.1 percent from 11.3 percent.
Freetown, Jan. 21, 2015 (MOHS) – Member of Parliament and Team Leader of the Liberian Medical Team, Hon. Saah Hardy Joseph has described the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone as a serious concern for the three countries in the fight against the Ebola virus disease.
As of today, 12 August 2014, we have a total of 184 patients who have survived Ebola Virus Disease and subsequently discharged. The total number of new confirmed cases is 21: Kailahun 2, Kenema 15; Bombali 1; Port Loko 2 and Tonkolili 1.
At the beginning of the outbreak in Guinea and Liberia, this event was graded as a Level 2 based on the Emergency Response Framework (ERF). On 24 July 2014, the Director-General took the decision, based on the ongoing severity of the outbreak and a report of a case travelling from Liberia to Nigeria, to re-grade the event as a Level 3. In the ERF, a Level 2 event means WHO provides moderate support to the affected countries. With the re-grading to Level 3, WHO’s response is now consider substantial and additional resources must be mobilized.
