Officials in Sierra Leones capital are trying to find a woman who left a hospital with the help of her family after testing positive for the deadly Ebola virus. The 32-year-old woman, who radio stations in Freetown named as Saudatu Koroma, was being tested for virus in an isolation ward, then was forcefully removed by her family, Reuters reports. News of the hunt comes just days after Sierra Leone officials announced that the head doctor in the effort to combat Ebola in the country contracted the virus. Dr. Sheik Umar Khan treated more than 100 Ebola patients, and was diagnosed with the virus this week.
