    Four new cases of Ebola this weekend in Forecariah: Does Guinea want an end to the epidemic?

    Two people reported positive to Ebola test this Saturday, and two others yesterday Sunday: it is the sad accounting revealed in the villages of Kintinia and Taramassi (Forecariah) by the local coordinating the fight against Ebola. These cases were reported while the prefecture had over two weeks without a new case.

    According to the prefectural coordinating the fight against Ebola interviewed by national radio, all started from a girl who left Dar es Salam district in Conakry with her uncle when she was already a contact to get to Taramassi.

    She fell ill a few days after her arrival in Taramassi. The villagers decided to seek treatment from a healer found in the nearby village of Kintinia, we were told.

    She died and contaminated everyone who came close in the two villages. Ebola coordination Forécariah counted provisionally four positive cases already and dozens of contacts to be monitored.

    This new outbreak of Ebola while Guinea was beginning to see the end of the tunnel leaves questions unanswered: What is doing the Ebola coordination to stop the mobility of people contacts? Are all contacts actually vaccinated? Do we really want to finish with Ebola?
