MONROVIA, Liberia — A teenager has died of Ebola in a remote Liberian village, shattering hopes the nation defeated the disease in May when the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the country virus- free.

Tolbert Nyenswah, Liberian deputy minister for surveillance and disease control, said Tuesday that the virus had been positively identified in the 17-year-old boy’s remains.

The boy fell ill June 21 and died three days later in a village of Margibi County, an area that stretches from the coastline southeast of Monrovia into Liberia’s central region in the northeast. It borders Bong County, which is adjacent to Guinea where Ebola infections have persisted.
