MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A five-year-old boy tested positive for Ebola and was admitted to a treatment center in the nation’s capital Monrovia, 9News reported citing Liberian officials.
Liberia closed the border with Guinea after it registered a flare-up in March. Liberian authorities are investigating how the family was able to get to Monrovia.
The World Health Organization has warned that flare-ups should be anticipated due to virus persistence in some survivors. It stressed that the three Ebola-affected countries — Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone — must maintain strong capacity to prevent further outbreaks.
