    Epidemic: a suspected case of Ebola reported in Kayes

    By Malijet - Date: 1 hour ago

    The information was first given by our colleagues at Studio tamani before being confirmed on the site of Kayesinfo : a suspected case of Ebola was first discovered in Kayes region. According to reports, "it is a 3 year old girl whose father died in Guinea Conakry. She came to Mali with her aunt (living in Mali) that traveled to Guinea to fetch the girl in question. The girl and her aunt passed through Bamako in the neighborhood of Bagadadji then they went to Kayes. Admitted yesterday Tuesday to the regional hospital in Kayes, the girl and the people who have been in contact with her, are in quarantine. A technical team left Bamako on Wednesday morning to get to Kayes and take blood samples. "

    This means that for now, nothing is confirmed yet and we must cross our fingers in anticipation, hope, of a negative result.

                  "The Ministry of Health has announced that a 2-year-old girl has tested positive for Ebola on 23 October. The child travelled from Kissidogou, Guinea. Her mother died in Guinea several weeks earlier, and relatives brought her to Mali. She presented to the Fousseyni Daou Hospital in Kayes on 22 October. The child and all her contacts are in quarantine. Unverified sources indicate that the child spent ten days in Bamako, in Bagadadji, before being taken to Kayes. It is unclear whether she displayed any symptoms of illness while in Bamako."

                      "She travelled with her grandmother in Guinea and returned to Mali. We don't have all details of this trip," Chaib added.

                      The girl, who fell ill in the western Malian town of Kayes on Oct. 20, saw a doctor and was admitted the following day to hospital where she remains in the paediatric ward, Chaib said.

                      "She saw a health care worker on October 20th when she had a fever of 39 degrees Celsius, blood in her stools, was coughing and had a nose bleed. They tested for malaria or typhoid and she was admitted to hospital on October 21st," she said.

                        Ebola: the first confirmed case in Mali, though there has never been a case of ebola in Kissidougou.

                        Mali, neighboring country of Guinea, has recorded the first case of the disease Ebola Thursday in the city of Kayes in the west of the country, announced the Malian Ministry of Health in a press release widely distributed by media of that country.

                        According to the statement from the Ministry of Health, it is a 2 year old little girl from the town of Kissidougou in the Forest Region of Guinea, a city that had previously been spared yet despite its proximity to the city of Guéckédou where the epidemic broke out. Admitted to Hospital Fousseyni Daou Kayes, the case of of the little girl was positive after analyzing her blood sample.
                        ...
                        Until then, Mali had not closed its borders with neighboring Guinea hit by the Ebola virus, not only because of the friendly relations between the two countries, but also in accordance with the regulations of the World Health Organization health Organization (WHO).

                        Malian authorities explained that the non-closure of the borders with Guinea is due to the establishment of a mechanism to prevent border threat, as is the case at the airport in Bamako Senou. There, all passengers entering Mali are controlled through a thermal camera that evaluates their temperature to see if they develop fever or not.

                        Anyway Malian authorities say they have set up a national contingency plan which aims to prevent the occurrence of the epidemic of Ebola haemorrhagic fever in their countries.

                        At the time of publishing this dispatch, we could not reach any Guinean authority to comment on the news.

                          WHO: Mali case may have infected many people

                          DAKAR, SENEGAL — The World Health Organization says a toddler who brought Ebola to Mali was bleeding from her nose during her journey on public transport and may have infected many people.


                          WHO said it is treating the situation in Mali as an emergency.
                          ...

                          WHO said Friday that the girl and her grandmother passed through several towns in Mali on their trip from Guinea and spent two hours in the Malian capital of Bamako before ending up in the western city of Kayes.

                            Mali isolates nurses amid alarm after first Ebola case


                            BAMAKO, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Nurses and other people who have come into contact with the first Ebola patient in Mali were isolated on Friday as concerns mounted that an epidemic that has killed 4,900 people in neighbouring West African states could take hold in the country.

                            ....

                            On the dusty streets of the capital Bamako, residents voiced alarm after health officials said the girl had spent 10 days in the city's Bagadadji district before travelling on Sunday to Kayes, some 400 km to the northwest near the Senegalese border.

                            ...

                            One diplomatic source, briefed by authorities, said the girl was showing symptoms of the disease when she arrived in Kayes, three days before she was isolated for suspected Ebola.

                            Six nurses who treated the girl at a hospital in Kayes had been isolated for treatment, the source said, but noted it was not clear how quickly this was done. The girl first came for treatment on Monday but was not confirmed to have the disease until Thursday.

                            A further 26 contacts had been isolated at the CNAM national medical centre in Bamako, the source said.

                            A Malian Health Ministry official, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters that authorities estimated that at least 300 people had been in contact with the infected child.
                            ...

                            Hours before Mali confirmed the case, WHO Assistant Director-General Keiji Fukuda said the agency had "reasonable confidence" that there was not widespread transmission of the Ebola virus into neighbouring countries.

                            Mali, together with cocoa producer Ivory Coast, has put in place border controls to stem the stop Ebola at its frontiers. However, a visit to Mali's border with Guinea by Reuters this month showed vehicles avoiding a health checkpoint set up by Malian authorities by simply driving through the bush.

                            Ivory Coast - the world's largest producer of the raw material for chocolate - was also on alert after Guinean authorities informed them that an Ivorian doctor working in Guinea had slipped surveillance and headed for the border after discovering one of his patients had contracted Ebola.

                            "He disappeared on Wednesday. We don't know if he actually crossed the border," said Daouda Coulibaly, head of the epidemiological monitoring service at the National Health Institute and the leader of the Ebola effort.

                            "He's a contact person. This isn't a case of infection. We're asking him to contact our health authorities."
