No Ebola Outbreak In Sierra Leone Says Chief Medical Officer Of Sierra Leone

The Chief Medical Officer of Sierra Leone Dr. Amara Jambai says there is no case of Ebola in Sierra Leone, contrary to media reports of discovered cases in the parts of the country including the capital, Freetown.

According to Dr. Jambai the news of a new outbreak was spread through a leaked document which was intended for internal use only as part of a stimulation exercise to test the country’s preparedness in case of a real outbreak.

News of the outbreak spread panic across social media among citizens of West Africa particularly Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea but the Chief Medical Officer is urging people not to panic as the release was only meant to test Sierra Leone readiness.
