Liberia Records Ebola Death After Country Declared Virus-Free

A Liberian has died of Ebola in the first recorded case of the disease since a country at the heart of an epidemic that has killed more than 11,000 people was declared virus-free on May 9 after going 42 days without a new case.
The body of a 17-year-old tested positive for Ebola in Margibi County and authorities have begun tracing people the victim may have come into contact with while infected.
The new case will test Liberia's response capacity at a time when international health organizations have wound down their presence in the affected countries.
