Sierra Leonean Doctor Who Treated Ebola Patients Dies From The Virus

Sheik Umar Khan, the Sierra Leonean doctor hailed as a “national hero” for treating more than one hundred Ebola patients, died yesterday of the same disease.

According to Sierra Leone’s Chief Medical Officer Brima Kargbo, Sierra Leone has lost its only viral haemorrhagic specialist in the face of this epidemic.

The doctor was diagnosed with the virus last week.

In a Reuters interview, the late 39-year old Khan had expressed fears for his life before being diagnosed.

This was despite his wearing protective gear when treating patients.
