According to Reuters, Guinea’s health minister Remy Lamah said that Guinea is tracking close contacts of Ebola virus infection and transporting vaccines to the affected areas as soon as possible, and Guinea has the ability to prevent a recurrence of Ebola outbreak.
In an interview with the media, Rama said: “In 2013, it took us several months to know that we were dealing with the Ebola epidemic.
This time, in less than four days, we analyzed the results.
Our medical team is trained and experienced.
We have a way to quickly defeat the disease.”
WHO Guinea Representative Georges Ki-Zerbo said he had requested authorization to obtain as many vaccines as possible.
He added that although there are some restrictions to send vaccines to Guinea quickly, the authorities are working hard to solve these problems so that targeted vaccination can be carried out next week.
In March 2014, the Ebola outbreak in Guinea had a huge impact on the political, economic and social fields of the country.
On 29 December 2015, the World Health Organization declared the end of the Ebola outbreak in Guinea.
During the next 90 days of intensive monitoring, Guinea again reported seven confirmed cases of Ebola and three suspected cases.
On June 1, 2016, the World Health Organization declared the end of the second Ebola epidemic in Guinea. The epidemic has infected more than 3,700 people and killed more than 2,000 people.
