Liberia's chief medical officer has put herself under quarantine for 21 days, after one of her assistants, Rev. Napoleon Braithwaite, died from the deadly Ebola virus.
Bernice Dahn, a deputy health minister, said she had no symptoms but wanted to take every precaution, reports BBC.
"All those who worked in Dr. Dahn’s office, including those at the Ministry who came in close contact with the deceased have been placed on 21-day quarantine. We are not taking anything for granted at the Ministry. We are taking the necessary precautions," Assistant Minister for Curative Services at the Ministry of Health Mr. Tolbert Nyenswah has quoted as saying in FrontPageAfrica.
