29 Ebola patients escape after attack
Armed men attacked an Ebola isolation ward in the Liberian capital Monrovia Saturday night, prompting 29 patients to flee the facility, witnesses said yesterday.
“They broke down the doors and looted the place. The patients all fled,” said Rebecca Wesseh, who witnessed the attack and whose report was confirmed by residents and the head of Health Workers Association of Liberian, George Williams.
The Kenyan government at the weekend said it would bar passengers travelling from Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.
The suspension is effective midnight tomorrow for all ports of entry for people travelling from or through the countries, said Kenya’s Health Ministry. Nigeria was not included in the ban, which also allows entry to health professionals and Kenyans returning from those countries.
