Deadly Ebola Virus is Spreading Fast in Guinea

Ebola Outbreak - March 2014 - BellaNaija 01

UNICEF has announced that an Ebola Outbreak has killed at least 59 People in Guinea.

The epidemic has hit the capital city Conakry. “At least 59 out of 80 who contracted Ebola across the West African country have died so far” said UNICEF in a statement to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

Ebola is spreading FAST to other West African countries.

There are currently no known treatments or vaccines for Ebola, a viral hemorrhagic fever that kills up to 90 percent of those who become infected. The virus spread through direct contact with blood, faeces or sweat, sexual contact and unprotected handing of contaminated corpses.

“This outbreak is particularly devastating because medical staff are among the first victims … hindering the response and threatening normal care in a country already lacking in medical personnel,” revealed UNICEF.

Watch CNN’s video on the deadly virus.

    I really pray they contain it. But it makes you wonder where these viruses pop out from. The last Ebola case I heard about was in East Africa, now it has migrated to West Africa. What exactly is the carrier?

      We are the carrier as a host. It can be contacted via unsterilized equipments, sexual intercourse, from contaminated person to another, by not wearing gloves and protected gowns, etc

    Sh*t. As if the impoverished millions in W/Africa didn’t have enough problems to worry about 🙁

    I see quarantine measures being put in place very soon by many countries as they tighten their immigration procedures. @Tiki, you better book that flight quickly.

    Don’t these bastards constantly looting public funds REALISE that when you deliberately withhold the development of infrastructure (e.g. provision of adequate medical resources), you put everyone in grave danger (INCLUDING YOUR OWN FAMILIES) when deadly diseases break out? Bastards.

      My dear I concur with you, the health officials are the first ones to die, how sad is this, instead of looting from the very people that put you in-power, how about saving a thought for the medical establishments that are barely existant. and now here we are back to the so calle dcountries who will redeem us with a quarantine before this thing eliminates the entire African continent. How many people are currently on business to Guinea, then to Lagos and then UK or God knows where else? this is serious o, no vaccine, you get affected from someone’s sweat! God is the only remedy to save us from ourselves! Everyone travelling out of Guinea should be quarantined! and guess who can only do this, the same people that we got our independence from!

    Ebola has no cure yet, and spreads very fast. Its air born and death is almost immediate. If this virus enters a country like Nigeria…..

    OMG! Hubby was in Guinea last week! I thought the last time this virus was in East Africa. How did it get to West Africa again. Is there a way to research and contain this virus? Or is it just in books that they do that? God help them, this is a very deadly virus.

    they have come again. they are trying to control the population of the world, and of course they’ll start with africa since we don’t know what family planning is. i heard about ebola about 5 years ago and the pictures i saw were truly scary. i believe ebola, just like AIDS was created in lab. shikena

      very wrong.. reservoir for the virus i believe is in animals.. a closely related virus marburg from the same class of filiviruses was found in bats in germany i believe. There was also an outbreak in monkeys in virginia some time ago. the strain just didn’t transfer to humans. I wouldn’t say what I am not entirely sure of, of what I have no idea about.
