The epidemic trend in Liberia and Sierra Leone remains precarious with high numbers of new cases and deaths being reported. The current active focus of the Ebola outbreak have been identified as Kailahun and Kenema in Sierra Leone and Lofa and Montserrado in Liberia.

Between 6 and 8 July 2014, 44 new cases of EVD, including 21 deaths, were reported from the three countries as follows: Guinea, one (1) new case and two (2) deaths; Liberia, 11 new cases with four(4) deaths; and Sierra Leone 32 new cases and 15 deaths. These numbers include laboratory-confirmed, probable, and suspect cases and deaths of Ebola.

As of 8 July 2014, the cumulative number of cases attributed to Ebola in the three countries stands at 888, including 539 deaths. There is 59% increase of deaths from the report 2 weeks ago.

New imagery should be available soon to cover most of this Kenema district. We also received a new request this morning to cover the zone south of Kenema city up to Zimmi.

As soon new imagery is available, we will prepare new Task Manager jobs and  will contact the community. We will need again to ask for an intense collaboration to cover the Kenema district rapidly.
