The World Health Organization did not provide the age or sex of the victim, although Reuters reported that the death had occurred in the capital, Freetown.

The organization has warned that small flare-ups of the disease are likely because the virus can persist in the bodily fluids of survivors. Officials estimate that the virus can be present in semen for up to a year after survivors are free of the disease and show no symptoms.
