45-day Ebola `health emergency` declared in five Guinea regions: president



Guinean President Alpha Conde on Saturday declared a 45-day "health emergency" in five regions in the west and southwest of the Ebola-hit nation in a bid to stem the spread of the deadly disease.

The focus of the virus "has shifted to our country`s coastal areas", the president said in a statement published in national media. "That is why I am declaring a reinforced health emergency for a period of 45 days in the prefectures of Forecariah, Coyah, Dubreka, Boffa and Kindia," he said.
