Ebola cases rise in Sierra Leone capital

Health officials in Sierra Leone have warned that new cases of Ebola are continuing to emerge, more than year after the major outbreak was first declared.

Despite a decline in cases in recent months, there has been a sudden rise in new infections in the capital Freetown.

Almost 4,000 people have died from Ebola in Sierra Leone since the epidemic broke out in December 2013, making it one of the worst hit countries worst along with Guinea and Liberia.

Experts warn that fear, fatigue and denial are allowing the virus to spread.
