FREETOWN Sierra Leone is to vaccinate around 200 people who came into direct or indirect contact with a woman who died of Ebola on Saturday, a spokeswoman for the U.N. World Health Organisation said on Wednesday. The death of the woman, a trader from Kambia District near the border with Guinea, sets back efforts to end an 18-month epidemic that has infected more than 28,000 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia and killed more than a third of them. The 67-year-old woman died five days after Sierra Leone started a 42-day countdown to being declared free of Ebola #Technology #Middle East #Argentina #Nigeria #Latin America #Entertainment #Business
