Guinean President Alpha Conde Declared 45-days Health Emergency In Guinea 


March 29,Conakry:The Guinean President Alpha Conde has declared a 45-day health emergency, in five Ebola hit regions, in an effort to slow down the spread of this deadly virus.

According to him,  “The center of the infection has moved to our country’s coastal ranges”, the president said in an announcement published in national media. “That is the reason I am declaring a strengthened health emergency for a time of 45 days in the prefectures of Forecariah, Coyah, Dubreka, Boffa and Kindia,” he said.

Since the Ebola episode started in Guinea in December 2013, more than 24,000 individuals in nine nations have been infected with the infection, and more than 10,000 of them have passed away.

All but a handful of those deaths have occurred in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

The World Health Organization announced in January that the epidemic was at last declining in west Africa after the three nations at the epicenter have recorded a slow drop in cases.

Liberia on Saturday declared the death of a lady who a week ago turned into the nation’s first new Ebola patient in over a month. Health authorities additionally said two new suspected cases had been recognized.

Sierra Leone on Friday started a  nationwide lock down, because, it seems like infection is making a rebound in specific parts of the country.
