Suspected Ebola patients flee after quarantine center attacked
As many as 30 patients under observation for Ebola were reported to have fled a quarantine center in Liberia as it was being attacked.
But there are now conflicting reports on the figure as a senior health official said all the patients were moved to another medical facility.
Saturday evening, local time looters reportedly called Ebola a hoax(houks) as they took medical equipment from the center, likely infected with the contagion raising concerns of an expanded infection risk.
Liberia has seen a growing number of Ebola cases. The latest W-H-O update said 1-hundred-16 new cases were registered between Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.
The strike is seen as a huge setback in the struggle to contain the Ebola which has killed more than a thousand people in West Africa so far.
