A 16-year-old girl has died from Ebola in the northern Sierra Leone city of Makeni, the National Ebola Response Centre (NERC) said Monday.

The case brought the number of Ebola fatalities to two since President Ernest Bai Koroma discharged the last Ebola patient at a ceremony on August 24. NERC described the case as "disappointing" but said response teams had been well prepared for coping with such an event.
