Liberia is reporting a new case of the deadly Ebola virus just one month and 20 days after the World Health Organization declared the country free of the virus transmission.

Mr. Tolbert Nyenswah, Deputy Minister - designate for Disease, Surveillance and Epidemic Control confirmed to FrontPageAfrica Monday evening that the case was discovered after the death of the victim.

At least 20 people have been quarantined in Liberia as the authorities try to trace all the people who came into contact with a 17-year-old boy who has died of Ebola. They are also trying to figure out how he became infected.

People in Margibi County, where the boy died, say they are afraid that an Ebola outbreak could begin again. But the government says there is no need to panic.

Liberia has lost its Ebola-free status, seven weeks after it declared there were no more cases in the country.
