Spurt in Ebola Cases in Liberia

The Daily Mail reports:
Almost 50 new Ebola cases have erupted in Liberia, harming the fight against an outbreak which has now infected more than 20,000 people across West Africa. 
Medics had hoped they were finally beating the disease in Liberia after infection rates began to fall last month amid a global disaster appeal. 
But today officials said 49 new cases had been identified in one part of one county - and they blamed them partly on the tradition of washing loved ones' bodies before they are buried.
The article describes the affected county--Grand Cape Mount County--as adjoining Sierra Leone, but a map in the article shows that it is well away from the borders, just south of the Liberian capital on the coast.
