Meanwhile the Ministry of Health and Sanitation Sierra Leone confirmed 31 cases of Ebola in the past 48 hours.

“We are in a complicated way to reach zero cases to March 31 and reach the goal set by President Ernest Bai Koroma. It’s frustrating,” said Palo Conteh.Regarding the situation said they have detected two new foci of infection in Freetown (Sierra Leone capital), located on the east and west of the city.

“The problem is that the western area is densely populated and people have different behavior. People have become complacent,” analyzed the official.

On this point he stressed that the National Response Center will present a proposal to the national government to develop joint proposals to allow the elimination of virus in the coming days.
