PRESS RELEASE - BRUSSELS – 11/08/2015
The Sierra Leone Embassy in Brussels is pleased to inform Sierra Leoneans both at home and abroad that, First Lady of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Her Excellency, Sia Nyama Koroma was this morning, 11th August, 2015 discharged from the Saint LUC hospital in Brussels after experiencing a sudden attack aboard Brussels Airlines from Freetown to Brussels in the early hours of Monday, 10th August, 2015.
Upon the arrival of the flight in Brussels and accompanied by her eldest daughter, Lawyer Alice Koroma, the First Lady was immediately rushed to the Saint LUC hospital where she was admitted for 24 hours undergoing treatment and observation.
She was eventually discharged in the early hours of Tuesday, 11th August, 2015 after doctors issued her a health clearance certificate and was given the green-light to proceed her journey to Germany where she is scheduled to address an Investors conference.
Contrary to rumours peddled by detractors on social media that the First Lady has been tested Ebola positive and presently admitted under critical condition in a Brussels hospital, the doctor’s medical certificate cleared her of any dangerous disease not to mention of Ebola. She spent some hours resting at the residence of Ambassador Ibrahim Sorie, sharing jokes and food with staff of the Embassy before boarding the flight to Germany.
