Liberia's Information Minister says all 17 suspected Ebola patients, who had fled their quarantine center when it came under fire this past weekend have been accounted for.
Minister Lewis Brown said they will undergo testing for the virus at JFK Hospital at the capital as 3 infected African doctors, who had been administered the last known doses of the experimental drug Zmapp were showing "remarkable signs of improvement".
The latest W-H-O update shows that Liberia - again - registered the most number of new Ebola deaths over a 3-day period in the latter half of last week with 53 new casualties.
The overall Ebola death toll observed in the 4 West African nations of Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria has topped the 12-hundred mark.
