virion-ebola

A pesar de que la Organización Mundial de la Salud había informado de que durante las dos últimas semanas no había habido nuevos casos de infección, la euforia en la lucha contra esta enfermedad ha sido frenada en seco. Las autoridades sanitarias han confirmado que dos pacientes en Guinea están infectadas por el virus.Margaret Harris, portavoz de la OMS, ha comunicado a Naciones Unidas quelas personas afectadas se encuentran en Conakry (capital de Guinea) y Forecariah, donde este segundo caso podría estar relacionado con un brote local identificado con anterioridad

The World Health Organization says there were two new cases of Ebola in Guinea this week, ending two consecutive weeks in West Africa when no cases of the devastating disease were reported.The two new patients were not previously identified contacts being tracked by health authorities, suggesting that officials are still unable to monitor everyone exposed to Ebola. WHO spokeswoman Dr. Margaret Harris said Friday the U.N. health agency had expected to see more cases despite the recent lull in the epidemic. She added the cases were in areas where scientists knew Ebola was spreading.In an update this week, WHO said there was a “near-term risk of further cases among both registered and untraced contacts.”To date, Ebola has killed more than 11,000 people in West Africa.
