Bio-Warfare: Guinea Hit by 2 New Cases of Ebola

Ebola clinic reopens in Guinea after virus resurfaces - Yahoo News
A medical charity said Friday it had reopened its specialist Ebola clinic in southern Guinea to treat an infected woman and her child after the virus killed at least two of their relatives.
The pair were receiving treatment after they tested positive for the virus on Thursday, the Alliance For International Medical Action (ALIMA) said.
"We hope that this new episode will be rapidly contained because today the authorities and communities are well versed in the appropriate measures to fight the disease," Richard Kojan, a Conakry-based doctor for ALIMA, said.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said Friday Guinean health officials had alerted it to Ebola symptoms in the family's village of Koropara, 100 kilometres (60 miles) from Guinea's second city of Nzerekore, on March 16.

Two bodies tested positive for Ebola in Guinea, the government said Thursday, months after the outbreak was declared over in the West African country and hours after Sierra Leone announced the end of the recent flare-up of the virus there.
The cases emerged from the same family out of Koropara, in the N'Zerekore prefecture, about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) southeast of Guinea's capital, Conakry, said Ibrahima Sylla, a spokesman for the national coordination for the fight against Ebola. Sylla said there are three other probable cases, and health authorities are taking appropriate measures to contain the spread.
An emergency meeting will be held Friday with the Ministry of Health, said Dr. Sakoba Keita, the national coordinator of the fight against Ebola.
