A new case of Ebola has been confirmed in Liberia, the World Health Organization said Friday, a setback for the country that had been declared free from Ebola transmissions in January.
Health authorities at the Redemption Hospital in the densely populated New Kru Town suburbs of Monrovia said a 30-year-old woman died of Ebola.
The woman died Thursday night, said the head of Liberia's Ebola response, Tolbert Nyenswah.
"She died on arrival and a swab was taken, analyzed in the lab and was confirmed," Nyenswah said. "We are investigating the source."
