Over 100 people have been quarantined in Sierra Leone after a 22-year-old woman who died last week tested positive for Ebola.

The case happened exactly day after the World Health Organization declared the outbreak over in West Africa.

The Director of Disease, Control and Prevention in the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Dr. Foday Dafae disclosed that the victim who was a student was not properly buried by a burial team.

28 out of the 100 quarantined are at high risk. National Coordinator of Office of National Security, Ishmael Tarawallie said “We are worried and concerned about this new development. It was not unexpected that a flare-up was possible.”

Ebola has killed more than 11,300 people, mostly in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, since this outbreak emerged in late 2013.
