Man with Ebola tries to run away - level 3

Man with Ebola tries to run away - level 3

08-09-2014 07:00

A man has escaped from an Ebola quarantine centre, sending people fleeing in fear, as he walked through a local market in search of food.

On Monday the patient, who can be seen in a red shirt and wearing a tag showing he tested positive for Ebola, tried to get away from doctors in the centre in Monrovia, Liberia.

The patient escaped from Monrovia's Elwa hospital, which last month was said to be so crowded it had to turn away Ebola victims.

More than 1,550 people in four West African countries have died from the virus since the outbreak was first recorded in March.

Liberia has the highest infection rate with around 700 deaths out of 1327 suspected and confirmed cases.

One local woman said care for Ebola patients was so inadequate, they were not even being fed. Healthcare workers eventually forced the man into a waiting ambulance and took him back to the facility.

Difficult words: flee (to run away fast), positive (have something), inadequate (not good enough).
