Health experts have said that the authorities in Sierra Leone are continuing to battle the deadly Ebola disease in the country.
The virus has taken the life of over 11,000 people in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. However, the spread of disease has receded and Liberia has been declared Ebola free. On the other hand, Sierra Leone and Guinea continue to record new cases. Experts say that there might be shortcomings in the efforts to fight and eradicate the disease in Sierra Leone and Guinea.
Data showed that 60 new cases have been confirmed in the capital city Freetown and northern districts of Sierra Leone in just over a month. The rate of new case is much lower than monthly average recorded in the previous year but doubts have been raised over the government's ability and commitment to eradicate the disease completely.
Experts say that the search for an affordable cure and vaccine continues but the efforts to fight the disease is impacted by secrecy and corruption. Several tests on use of blood plasma, atorvastatin, and antiviral drugs have been conducted in the country but the results are yet to be known.
