    Two new Ebola cases found in Guinea, dashing hopes

    GENEVA | BY TOM MILES

    Two people have fallen ill with Ebola in Guinea, the World Health Organization said on Friday, dashing hopes of an imminent end to the worst recorded outbreak of the disease after a two-week spell without any new cases across West Africa.

    Authorities in Guinea said one of the cases, in Forecariah, western Guinea, appeared to be linked to a previously known chain of infection, while the other in the capital Conakry appeared to be new.

    "On the bumpy road we keep talking about - the high risk of recurrence - once again we are navigating a few bumps," WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris told a briefing in Geneva

    "Of course we didn't want it, but we did expect it. Guinea hadn't got to the stage where we were looking at 42 days."

    Guinea: Two new cases of Ebola after the presidential election
    ...
    According to Margarett Harris, the first case was recorded Monday, October 13, the day after the presidential elections, while the second was recorded Tuesday, October 14 at Forecariah during a post-mortem analysis.

    In recent weeks, with the election campaign and the presidential election, Guineans were speaking less of Ebola. In its preliminary report on the conduct of the election, the ECOWAS Observer Mission noted that "the system to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus, was not available in most polling stations. "

    The last cases date back to 26 and Sept. 27. The country that thought finally finish with the virus will have to wait.

    The other bad news is that, according to a recent study of 93 male volunteers in Sierra Leone, the virus could persist in the sperm of some survivors for at least nine months.
