West Africa sees spread of Ebola outbreak

  • Over 50 people were killed due to an outbreak of Ebola in the country of Guinea but reports suggest that another 21 are now suffering from symptoms such as fever, diarrhea and vomiting. 

    "But you have to understand that not all the cases are necessarily due to Ebola fever," a doctor in the region said. "Some will have other origins, including a form of severe dysentery."

    Teams from Doctors Without Borders are setting up isolation units but Guinea has a "weak medical infrastructure, an outbreak like this can be devastating," a UNICEF representative said.
