(LONDON GUARDIAN) Liberia has found all 17 suspected Ebola patients who fled a quarantine centre in Monrovia at the weekend and transferred them to another clinic, the country’s information minister said on Tuesday.

“We are glad to confirm that all of the 17 individuals have been accounted for and have now been transferred to JFK Ebola specialist treatment centre,” said Lewis Brown.

He also said three infected African doctors who had received the experimental Ebola drug ZMapp were showing “remarkable signs of improvement”, quoting an assessment by the doctor overseeing their treatment.
