3 people have died of Ebola, and another 5 have tested positive for the virus in southeastern Guinea, the state health agency said, the first possible resurgence of the disease there since the world’s worst outbreak in 2013-2016.

The patients fell ill with vomiting, diarrhoea and bleeding after attending a burial in Goueke sub-prefecture. The 5 still alive have been isolated in treatment centres.

It was not clear if the person buried on Feb. 1 - a nurse at the local health centre who had fallen ill - had also died of Ebola.

The last major outbreak of Ebola in West Africa started in Guinea. It went on to kill at least 11,300 people with the vast majority of cases in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

It said Guinea would contact the World Health Organization and other international health agencies to acquire Ebola vaccines. The vaccines have greatly improved survival rates in recent years.

Update

 

A supply of over 11,000 Ebola vaccines have reached Conakry, the capital of Guinea, the WHO said on Tuesday.

"The cargo was transported from Senegal by government plane after bad weather caused a stop-over in Dakar. Timely vaccination will be crucial in curbing the Ebola outbreak," WHO Africa Region tweeted.

:saladga: I’m stressed

don’t be. it stayed predominantly in africa and a few other countries but isn’t a rapid-spreading disease. it doesn’t have pandemic potential:kara:

also OP said ebola vaccines are available so that’s a relief too.

Rest In Peace

 

Also hope it is under controlled so it won't spread outside the country.
