Latest updates on the deadly ebola in Liberia, statistics show decline in number of new cases
The latest statistics from the Liberian Health Ministry authorities put the number of people succumbing to the deadly Ebola virus in the country at 2,700 out of a total of 5000 in the three West African states Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Despite the huge death toll, the disease may appear to be gradually vanishing even though only syndromic treatment is being administered in the absence of a cure.
For the past week, medical authorities in Liberia have been suggesting a drastic decline in the number of cases and deaths at ebola treatment facilities across the country. A statement made by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf upon her return from Lofa County also confirmed the declined of ebola cases in the country.
According to the Medical Authorities, one may not want to attribute the drastic decline in the number of cases at the various units to the reemergence of the dry season considering the irresistible nature of the Ebola virus during such weather.
