Ebola virus

February 18 According to a report by the Russian Sputnik network, the World Health Organization released a message on the 18th that the Ebola epidemic in Guinea has killed five people in the country, and the epidemic is currently at risk of spreading to neighboring countries.

According to the report, at present, Guinea has not identified a viral strain, and experimental research is under way.

As of February 15, 192 people had been exposed to infected people.

At present, none of these people have left Guinea.

However, Nzerekore, which has an epidemic, is the second largest city in Guinea, and Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire both pass by roads in the area.

The World Health Organization therefore stressed that Guinea has a very high risk of Ebola transmission and is also very likely to reach neighboring countries.
