Sierra Leone: Rapid Response Credited To Lack Of New Ebola Cases

The use of rapid response teams and strong community involvement in finding Ebola virus disease cases and contacts, is yielding positive results in Sierra Leone. An epidemiological week has now passed with no new Ebola cases for the first time, since the beginning of the outbreak. The country is now down to a single chain of transmission, which started in Freetown but sparked a cluster of cases in Tonkolili, in the northern region of the country.
