Nearly 1,000 people in Sierra Leone have been put under quarantine following the death of a 67-year-old woman who tested positive for Ebola.

It comes five days into a six-week countdown for the country to be officially declared Ebola-free.

The quarantine will last for three weeks, provided no new cases are recorded.

According to BBC News, the World Health Organization and Sierra Leone’s health ministry are planning a vaccination programme for those who could have come into contact with the woman.
