Ebola-patient

Sierra Leone confirmed a new case of Ebola on Wednesday, its second in less than a week, marking a further setback in efforts to end a two-year West African epidemic that has killed more than 11,300 people.

Health ministry spokesman, Sidi Yahyah Tunis, described the new patient as a 38-year-old woman, a relative who had helped care for the earlier victim Mariatu Jalloh.

Reuters reported that Jalloh died on January 12, and tested positive for Ebola posthumously.
