Hidden Ebola

In a Sierra Leone village considered an Ebola “hotspot” during the epidemic, researchers discovered 1 year later more than a dozen people with minor symptoms of infection that had gone undetected.
 
The outbreak was much more widespread in the village—and perhaps elsewhere in the country—than previously thought, according to the Stanford University and Partners in Health researchers’ study, published in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases this month.
 
Their estimates show those with minor symptoms discovered later made up about 25% of total cases, indicating more people may have survived getting Ebola than we knew.
