West Africa’s Ebola outbreak appears to have spread to Sierra Leone, the World Health Organization said Monday. One death in a village near the border with Guinea has been confirmed by a laboratory as Ebola, and four other deaths are considered suspect. Sierra Leone health officials told the Voice of America that the confirmed case was a woman who had just returned from the funeral of an Ebola victim in Guinea; the suspect cases included her relatives. The outbreak began in Guinea in March and spread to Liberia; of the 259 cases reported to the W.H.O., 175 have been fatal.
