Ebola Nurse Salome Karwah Died after Hospital Neglect, Husband Says

March 1, 2017

(BBC) – Liberian nurse Salome Karwah was one of those named as Time magazine’s person of the year in 2014 for her frontline work against Ebola. She died in Monrovia last week after giving birth to a son. Her husband told the BBC that nurses were unwilling to touch her for fear of contracting Ebola – even though she recently tested negative for Ebola. The hospital has not commented, and officials say they are investigating the death.
