Man with Ebola tries to run away – level 2

08-09-2014 07:00

People recorded the first outbreak of Ebola in March. Since then, more than 1,550 people died from the virus. The situation is the worst in Liberia.

One patient escaped from a Liberian quarantine centre. He went through a local market. He looked for food. After people saw him, they ran away. Healthcare workers eventually caught the man and took him back to hospital.

Care at the Ebola centre is not good. Last month, it was so crowded people had to be turned away with Ebola!

Difficult words: outbreak (beginning), quarantine (isolation), eventually (in the end).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
