Ebola Epidemic Declared in Guinea

The West African country Guinea declared an Ebola epidemic Sunday after an outbreak killed several people and hospitalized others.

The Ebola virus killed at least three people and infected four others after a spread possibly traced to the Feb. 1 burial of a nurse. All the known cases involved people aged over 25.

“The government reassures the population that all measures are being taken to stem this epidemic as quickly as possible,” Guinean Health Minister Remy Lamah said per the Washington Examiner.

“It invites the populations of the affected areas to respect hygiene and prevention measures and to report to health authorities in the presence of suggestive signs.”

Cases of Ebola, which causes diarrhea, internal hemorrhaging, and fever, had been isolated to two cities, N’Zerekore and Conakry.


The Democratic Republic of the Congo last week confirmed four Ebola cases not linked to the Guinea outbreak.
