Over 100 lives claimed by Ebola in Guinea

Over 100 people, out of 157 people infected, have died in the Ebola outbreak in Guinea, the country`s health authorities said.



Conakry: Over 100 people, out of 157 people infected, have died in the Ebola outbreak in Guinea, the country`s health authorities said.

"There was a marked reduction in the spread of the disease," said Sakoba Keita, head of the disease prevention unit, Xinhua reported Wednesday. 

A total of 20 cases and eight deaths have been reported in the capital city of Conakry.

"I think the combined efforts made by the government and its development partners as well as sensitisation of the population has helped in the fight against the disease," Keita said.

He, however, noted that the World Health Organisation will only declare the end of the epidemic if there is no new case within 42 days.
