    Ebola: an update April 10
    Point status Thursday, April 10, 2014

    1. Significant work cleaning and classification of statistical data was conducted by experts from the Ministry of Health of Guinea and WHO (World Health Organization). This results in a change in the distribution of cases among prefectures, which however does not affect the overall balance, which remains stable. It is as follows: 156 suspected cases, 102 deaths: Gu?k?dou (93 cases, 66 deaths), Macenta (21 cases, 15 deaths), Kissidougou (6 cases, 5 deaths) Dabola (4 cases, 2 deaths), Dinguiraye (2 cases, 1 death), Conakry (30 cases, 13 deaths).

    France has strengthened its aid to Guinea with the arrival, Saturday, April 5, Mr. Sylvain BAIZE, Head of the National Reference Centre hemorrhagic fevers of the Institut Pasteur de Lyon, and a grant of 150 000 Euros (budget of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development / Crisis Centre) to the Guinean Red Cross.
    Mr. Jean-Claude MANUGUERRA, responsible for cell biological emergency Pasteur Institute of Paris and Mr. Christophe BATEJAT have strengthened the team analysis Donka Hospital Laboratory.
    The Ambassador of France and French researchers BAIZE Sylvain and Jean-Claude MANUGUERRA were received by the President of the Republic, Alpha CONDE, April 9.

      Haemorrhagic fever : "All bats are not responsible ", says Dr B?avogui

      Since the declaration of the Ebola virus , bats are the terror of Guineans . They are mammals they host for years. However, Dr Michel B?avogui Bossou , Section Head Tracking livestock and wildlife veterinarian of the Guinean Office of Parks and Reserves , said that all bats are not responsible for the Ebola virus. Dr. B?avogui gave this clarification officers and police officers who received Thursday at the premises of the Ministry of Security and Emergency Preparedness, the campaign in response to Ebola has already mourning several families in the country.

      According to the explanations of Dr. B?avogui three species of bats carry the Ebola virus. It is migratory species Hypsignatus monstrosur , Epomops franqueti and Myonycteris troquata . " They love the tropical forest where there is moisture ... It is in Forest Guinea that the conditions required by these species are met ," said the head of section Monitoring livestock and wildlife veterinarian . " Bats that we host for a long time are not responsible for the transmission of the virus," he said.

      But how do these migratory bats have they transmitted the virus in Guinea? Dr B?avogui reserves of any specific response before the end of the research is ongoing. What is clear , he says, is that there are multiple opportunities for transmission . And it can not be necessarily by eating meat bat or monkey , as some think . " Bats and chimpanzees often make war around the same fruit they all love . When the bat bite or scratch chimpanzees , they leave in them the virus ," said the exhibitor, highlighting even the simple touch chimpanzee can transmit the virus to humans .

      Other animals may harbor the virus in the ground picking fruits that are beyond the oral mucosa bats . These include antelope , porcupine and even pork. As bats and chimpanzees , these animals should be avoided - not to eat their meat or touch them with bare hands.

      Caution in the consumption of mango

      Dr. B?avogui indicates that there are many human pathogens in wildlife . According to a recent study of human diseases, there are at least 144 diseases derived from wild animals that have become important to human health in the past 60 years of pathogens.

      Deforestation destroys the habitat of these animals. In search of Eldorado , migratory bats and chimpanzees may migrate to non-forest areas. Therefore , a threat to our cities. As we dive into the period of mango , Dr. B?avogui Guineans requires caution in the consumption of this fruit they share with some animals. " We must be satisfied on mangoes that we pick ourselves. Do not let our children pick mangoes on the ground to eat ! " Advises B?avogui .

      Furthermore the origin of Ebola haemorrhagic fever , Dr. B?avogui also told police the symptoms and prevention of this disease. To block misconceptions about the extent of quarantine B?avogui tell police she is not decided to shorten the life of people . But rather, to save the lives of his loved ones healthy .

      The officers who participated actively in this debate came out of the room, fully informed about the epidemic that has spread terror in Guinea.

        Alpha Amadou Sall: "No country is far enough away to be protected from Ebola"

        04.11.2014 at 09:25 by Mathieu Olivier

        The Ebola virus continues to spread in West Africa. From Guinea, he has reached Liberia and cases are suspected in Sierra Leone and Mali. Interview of Dr. Amadou Sall Alpha, Scientific Director of the Institut Pasteur in Dakar.

        The Ebola virus is affecting more and more people in West Africa. Haemorrhagic fever was the cause of 10 deaths in Liberia and 101 in Guinea, 66 laboratory-confirmed officially as due to Ebola. The NGO Doctors Without Borders announced the recovery of some patients but the virus continues to spread, even if the disease is confined to certain areas. Dr. Amadou Sall Alpha, Scientific Director of the Institut Pasteur in Dakar, returning from Guinea, update on the situation to Jeune Afrique.

        Jeune Afrique: What is the current situation of the Ebola epidemic that is part of Guinea?

        It changes all the time. The last time I had a briefing with the authorities, we were in 154 cases, 101 deaths, including 66 confirmed Ebola. When we talk about cases, these are people we suspected of having the virus, but it still has to be confirmed in the laboratory. So it is constantly evolving. It's not because someone dies he was carrying Ebola, he could die in a context that was only suggestive of the virus.

        Is there countries particularly at risk in the vicinity of the Guinea?

        There are many suspected cases, but so far, confirmed cases are in Liberia and Guinea. In Mali, there has been suspected but have not been confirmed. We can not say if there are countries that are particularly at risk or not. There is a series of random factors, such as the notion of distance has become very relative with air network. Today, there is no country that is far enough away to be protected. We have to be extremely careful in predictions.

        African authorities are sufficiently prepared to control this epidemic?

        This is not the first time that the virus affects Africa, countries have previously been able to cope and control capacity into place over time. Of course, the states where there has been an outbreak previously know better respond than those in which this is the first time, such as Guinea, which, supported by the international community, trying to control the situation. The Pasteur Institute of Dakar has been able to provide support on the ground with laboratories, especially to confirm cases. This helps to identify those at risk, which has been in contact with them and thus develop a strategy. This is the first time that an African team was the first on site. Generally, the reaction has improved.

        What are the barriers to work on the ground?

        There is no obstacle as such. Teams work together to control the disease and there is, as always, some difficulties. These are situations where you know a very high mortality rate, which is fairly new to the public health systems. Quite often, the health staff who cared for the sick Ebola himself is affected. Physicians are on the front line. This is something that must be managed, including providing protective equipment when they do not.

        At this point, we do not have information that can specifically locate and characterize the "patient zero".

        How are contacts with the local population?

        It is important to communicate properly to avoid situations of fear in them. It educates, we brought in experts who implement strategies to inform the locals who are not affected: it is to give the explanations regarding the mode of transmission and risk situations, such as funeral rites . There funerals are conducted by specialized teams such. The idea is first to prevent the spread of the virus.

        Has the mode of transmission of the virus evolved since its discovery?

        I have no information to say that there is an evolution.

        Ebola outbreaks are rather located in Central Africa. This time it hit in West Africa. New strains appear?

        To my knowledge, no new strains were found. The strain that was found in Guinea closely resembles that found in Zaire (1976-1977). There in West Africa a second strain that was isolated in C?te d'Ivoire and others, including Sudan. These are the ones that circulate.

        In an epidemic, the discovery of "patient zero" is often crucial. Where are the investigations on this subject?

        They are ongoing. At this point, we do not have information that can specifically locate and characterize this case. We always try to understand how it started but priority is given first, in the context of propagation, control of the epidemic. Thereafter, we ask more scientific questions to manage research avenues. There currently own on-site teams working on this.

        -Where is the research about a potential treatment for Ebola?

        We are at the research level. There are a number of teams working on experimental vaccines with different advanced levels. But at this stage, it is premature to speak of processing which would be man. Teams interested in reservoirs of the virus, allowing it to survive between outbreaks. The track that has been demonstrated is that most of the fruit bat but some work including monkeys, because it is a relatively close holder rights. It is really in the experimental stage.

        Patients who have survived are very interesting to study.

        Some patients have survived. These cases can they help find a cure?

        There actually has patients who had been diagnosed with the virus and, after a care, have survived. Obviously, they are very interesting to study. Their samples are analyzed and phenomena that could take place during recovery are studied.

        What can medical teams today for people infected?

        All that exists is a symptomatic treatment, that is to say, we will try to relieve the patient by controlling and relieving some of the effects of the Ebola virus. It is this support that has allowed some patients to survive.

        Ebola outbreaks usually last a few weeks. It can crack it longer?

        It would be very unwise to make predictions. Until now, it is within the limits of what has been observed before. The epidemic, by definition, is random. Nobody would have predicted Ebola in Guinea at this time of the year. We need to continue research to understand this phenomenon and advance in future episodes. To date, it is not possible to predict any time or place. There are ongoing discussions but we do not yet have answers.

            Netherlands -

            Schiphol alert to Ebola virus

            Published April 11, 2014 7:49 | Last updated April 11, 2014 9:47

            Spread to Europe is not excluded

            HAARLEM - Health institute RIVM Schiphol and repatriation organizations asked to be on alert passengers with bleeding. If passengers being found with symptoms of infection with the deadly Ebola virus suggest, they must be separated and a mask fitted. Immediately should draw up a list of people with whom they have been in contact.

            The risk that the deadly virus from Africa to the Netherlands is small, says Aura Timen, head of the National Coordination Centre for Infectious Disease Control, RIVM.

            But according to her is spreading to Europe is certainly not impossible.

            The Petten expert on biological warfare Dr. Jill Bellamy likes this outbreak differently than others. It's worrying for Europe that the disease cases are not confined to rural areas, where the disease can not spread because the residents are not traveling. Now this outbreak hit the capital, it's a whole different story. I hope for the Netherlands, that they still do more than just watch bleeding passengers.''

              In Guinea, ebola makes forget other diseases and social tensions

              In Guinea Conakry , hemorrhagic fever due in part to the Ebola virus , which caused more than 100 deaths since January, makes us forget other diseases that continue to kill many , and recurrent social unrest , feel the inhabitants of Conakry .

              "We are traumatized by this Ebola phenomenon ," but our " population is also affllicted by all kinds of epidemics ," says Adama Traor?, cabinetmaker in Dar -es- Salam , a populous district of Conakry.

              "We were already struggling against malaria , cholera , measles and meningitis before Ebola came and made us forget all these diseases " added Abdoulaye Sow, a union official living in the capital .

              These diseases , less talked about since hemorrhagic fever have been reported in the country in March continue to kill many people in this country rich in mineral resources but where most of the population live in poverty.

              " If there is a disease that kills in Guinea , it is cholera but also meningitis, which in the first quarter of 2014 killed 24 people out of 316 registered cases ," says Dr. Aliou Barry , a doctor at Conakry.

              Since the beginning of the year, 4. 950 measles cases were also recorded , resulting in several deaths , according to the same source.

              " We are afflicted in our every day life. We have abandonned everything to face the ruthless and terrible epidemic that was recorded for the first time in the region" West African Serah Diallo said Rabyatou , former president of the transitional parliament .

                During 1995 Kikwit Ebola outbreak, several Italian nuns returned home despite six of their colleagues fell ill and died of the diseases. At the airport the nuns were taken to hospital and quarantined for three weeks. Luckily, none of them developed illness.

                This for saying that in the past (1995) traveler from affected ebola regions were screened for the disease in Europe, albeit turned healthy at the end of the maximum incubation period.

                The story of the returned nuns is available here in Italian: http://ricerca.repubblica.it/repubbl...ntena-per.html

                    Nigerian labs can?t detect Ebola

                    Sunday, April 13, 2014
                    It is official. No laboratory in Nigeria can effectively diagnose the Ebola virus because there is none that has the requisite infrastructure to culture and manipulate the deadly virus that has been responsible for the death of hundreds of people in countries across West Africa within the last one month.
                    That means samples from any patient suspected to be carrying the disease may have to be taken to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) laboratories in Atlanta, United States of America (USA), or to laboratories in Dakar, Senegal for confirmation.
                    This disclosure came even as renowned virologist and President, Nigerian Academy of Science (NAS), Professor Oyewale Tomori, in an interview with Sunday Independent stated that ?antibodies that were similar to that of Ebola virus were discovered in a sera (body fluid) samples of a patient in Nigeria in 1988.?
                    A confirmation of Nigeria?s inability to handle the diagnosis of the Ebola virus in humans came from the Registrar of the Medical Laboratory Council of Nigeria (MLCN), Professor Anthony Emeribe, in an interview with Sunday IndependentS
                    Speaking at the weekend, Emeribe said, ?Agreed, Nigeria has the capacity (personnel and space) that can detect Ebola virus. There is, however, no laboratory in Nigeria that has the safety levels needed for the diagnosis of the virus.?
                    According to the MLCN Registrar, the most advanced laboratories in Nigeria that can handle similar cases have a maximum Level 3 Biosafety level as against Level 4, which is the basic for Ebola Virus culturing and manipulation.
                    ?It can be detected, but if a laboratory does not have Biosafety Level 4 infrastructure, it may not be able to contain the bio-hazardous virus,? Emeribe disclosed.

                      The travel duration from their origin counties to Italy, through Central Africa, and Libya, usually takes weeks or months.

                      Thus, the likelihood that among african migrants landed in Italian coastal regions there would be ebolavirus infected / symptomatic is very low, if any: during the course of the travel, temporary camps, etc., a person infected with this virus would die as well as his companions.

                      So far, among landed migrants, there were not detected any kind of viral hemorraghic fever.

                      In addition, since most of these people have to pass Sahara desert, some of them died en route for thirst, famine or violence by armed guards in some border area of Libya, or in the detention camps there built in Agreement to a treaty signed by Italian govt & libyan counterpart.

                      Sadly, they have to face now even the stigma of a disease they haven't.

                        Ebola virus disease, West Africa (Situation as of 14 April 2014)


                        Guinea

                        As of 14 April, the Ministry of Health of Guinea has reported a cumulative total of 168 clinically compatible cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD), including 108 deaths.

                        The detailed situation report is available as at 11 April, describing 159 clinically compatible cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD), including 106 deaths.

                        Laboratory investigations continue at the Institut Pasteur (IP) Dakar laboratory in Conakry (66 samples tested, of which 39 are positive by PCR for ebolavirus) and at the European Union Mobile Laboratory (EMLab) team in Guekedou (55 samples tested/36 positive).

                        A total of 71 clinical cases have been laboratory confirmed (45%), while 34 of the remaining clinical cases are classified as probable cases and 54 as suspected cases.

                        Forty-two of the 106 deaths (40%) have been laboratory confirmed.

                        Some cases have had repeat testing carried out.

                        Six districts of Guinea have reported patients:
                        • Conakry (31 patients, 22 laboratory confirmed),
                        • Guekedou (95 cases/35 confirmed),
                        • Macenta (21 cases/12 confirmed),
                        • Kissidougou (6 cases/1 confirmed),
                        • Dabola (5 cases/1 confirmed) and
                        • Djingaraye (1 suspected case).

                        The date of onset of the most recently identified suspected clinical cases in Conakry and Guekedou was 10 April.

                        One additional health care worker (HCW) has been reported, bringing the total to 16 (11 laboratory confirmed and 5 probable cases).

                        Eleven patients were still hospitalised on 10 April while 37 have been discharged from care.

                        A total 941 contacts have been identified since the beginning of the outbreak.

                        Medical observation is continuing for 396 contacts while 545 have been discharged from follow-up.

                        Doctors at the Donka Hospital isolation facility in Conakry are investigating a cluster of cases who had funeral contact with a relative who died on 1 April with suspected malaria.

                        Two contacts of this patient were admitted on 12 April and tested positive.

                        One doctor is also linked to this chain of transmission; an internal medicine physician who cared for the patient tested positive on a post mortem sample. He developed an illness with features of EVD but without signs of bleeding.

                        Hospital-based surveillance and triage procedures and infection prevention and control are being strengthened as a result of this cluster. Community sensitization promoting safe burial practices in the community continue.

                        The distribution of cases and deaths reported today has changed as a result of ongoing data review against the surveillance case definitions in use and the receipt of laboratory results. Numbers of cases and contacts remain subject to change due to consolidation of case, contact and laboratory data, enhanced surveillance and contact tracing activities and the continuing laboratory investigations.

                                Haemorrhagic fever in Guinea : 9 new cases at Donka and death of another doctor
                                ...
                                According to our information , there were nine (9) new suspected cases of Ebola detected in only yesterday. One of Donka emergency physicians, Dr. Sidiki Kaba , died Sunday, April 13 , after having been in contact with a patient, without knowing that it was contaminated. Dr. Siaka Camara , a neurologist at Kip? , too, have lost live yesterday after being in contact with a patient ...

                                Apart from these known cases , it is reported that more than twenty (20) physicians are currently isolated Donka to have been in contact with cases that ultimately proved to be Ebola . And several others would be " in flight" , refusing to be isolated , so they had risky contacts ...

                                Contacted by telephone Guineenews , the Director General of the National Donka Hospital , Doctor Sikh Fatou Camara, has kindly apologized for not answering our questions . " Please communicate with the Communication Committee . Sakoba Call Dr. Keita who can answer all your questions. We , we are the commission " support . " Obviously, we are at the same level of information as they do . But as you know , everyone has their field. they are the ones who are empowered to communicate , not us ... " has she said.

                                After several attempts , Dr Sakoba Keita finally get our call to say " I 'm in a meeting ."

                                Some secrets , the government changed tactics , particularly in its communication face the deadly fever. Now, what are the statistics of people " cured " that are given and not the new suspected cases or deaths , even though I do not miss ...

                                But , in the opinion of some doctors , refusal to inform citizens increases the risk behaviors and further exposes citizens most of which have never believed in the real existence of the Ebola virus ...

                                Today, the lack of sincere communication , serious and convincing , rumors have completely taken over.
