For the week of 31 August–6 September, two confirmed cases have been reported: one in Conakry, Guinea, and the other in Kambia, Sierra Leone.
On 3 September the Ministry of Health and WHO declared Liberia Ebola-free again following 42 days without a new confirmed case.
Follow-up of more than 900 contacts is underway in Kambia district, Sierra Leone, following the community death of a 67-year-old, confirmed post-mortem, and the Ebola-positive confirmation of her daughter on DATE. More than 50 of the contacts are considered high risk, and surveillance teams are on alert for additional cases.
IFRC and the Sierra Leone Red Cross are coordinating with UNDP on a Multi-Party Trust Fund financed project to support the reintegration of 800 safe and dignified burials and IPC volunteers through vocational training, educational support and other streams.
