    Bamako (AFP) - Mali has suffered a new case of Ebola infection -- separate from its only other one detected last month -- with the death of a nurse who treated a patient from Guinea, medical sources said late Tuesday.

        "Indeed, according to our information, this new contamination is again taking its source in Guinea. A Guinean family suffering from Ebola have used a marabout in Mali who had traveled to Guinea to care for sick family.

        Unfortunately the family died, and the marabout healer infected by the virus returned to Mali after his Guinean stay. Taken discomfort, the marabout went to the Pasteur clinic. patients admitted to the clinic had all the symptoms of Ebola.

        Supported without any precaution by the clinic, and without having informed the authorities, the patient will die afterwards. The death of the marabout was in two weeks. Even more surprising, Clinical pastor gave no warning, but worse, she allowed the family to recover the body of the deceased marabout, to wash and then bury it without any protection. Today it is a doctor of clinical Shepherd who alerted the authorities anonymously because the nurse who was responsible for the management of this marabout symptoms of Ebola haemorrhagic fever. This is in response to this alert, the nurse was supported and tests are underway to determine if the nurse is contaminated.

        His death due to this new Ebola cases of contamination posed several questions to know the irresponsibility of clinical pastor accused in a while bad practices, yet with a good reputation. This also raises the question of maintaining the openness of our borders with Guinea Conakry. Risk-taking populations with respect to this disease are also noteworthy. It would certainly continue to intensify awareness campaigns around this highly contagious disease that continues to claim victims. "

              ALERT Ebola - Death of a patient and his nurse at the Clinique Pasteur Bamako

              By Malijet - Date: 30 minutes ago

              A nurse from the polyclinic Pasteur just past away as a result of Ebola fever after being in contact with a patient deceased there two weeks ago (October 28) in the same clinic.

              It should be noted that these deaths are not related to the suspected case previously announced by the Malian authorities on November 11.

              This new contamination would once again take its source in Guinea. A Guinean family suffering from Ebola would have called a marabout who is none other than the imam of the city of Kourémalé (Guinea side) and would have gone to Guinea to care for the sick family.

              Unfortunately the family died, and the marabout healer infected by the virus returned to Mali after his Guinean stay. Taken discomfort, the marabout went to the Pasteur clinic.

              It is also also reported that before his return to the Malian territory, the first wife of the imam in question and one of his children died of Ebola.

              Cared for without any precaution by the clinic, and without having informed the authorities, the patient will die afterwards. The death of the marabout goes back to two weeks. Even more surprising, Clinical Pasteur gave no warning, but worse, it has allowed the family to recover the body of the deceased marabout, to wash it and then bury it without any protection. Today it is a doctor at Pasteur clinic that alerted the authorities anonymously because the nurse who was responsible for the management of the marabout had symptoms of Ebola hemorrhagic fever.

              At the time of this writing, medical sources announced the death of the nurse.

              Malian authorities announced that the Pasteur Polyclinic is quarantined from the night of November 11 to 12.

                      Mali quarantines dozens after Ebola kills second victim

                      By Joe Penney
                      BAMAKO Wed Nov 12, 2014 8:10am EST

                      (Reuters) - Authorities in Mali quarantined dozens of people on Wednesday at the home of a 25-year-old nurse who died from Ebola in the capital, Bamako, and at the clinic where he treated an imam from Guinea who died with Ebola-like symptoms.

                      The imam from the border town of Kouremale was never tested for the disease and his body was washed in Mali and returned to Guinea for burial without precautions against the virus.

                      Two aid workers said that another person who lived in the house where the imam stayed in Bamako had died this week and was buried without being tested.

                      A doctor at the Pasteur Clinic where the nurse worked - one of Bamako's top medical centers - is also suspected to have contracted Ebola.

                        Ebola case in Mali: A nurse died Tuesday and possible suspected cases

                        (Reporting by Adam Thiam)
                        November 12, 2014 at 07:31 AM

                        At 0:12 Wednesday, our taxi could not cross the impressive barrier of police vehicles and police who were blocking the road to the very popular clinic of the most coveted neighborhood of the capital. The informant who we had put the chip in the ear was so right: the clinic where the cream of Bamako go for care is under quarantine.

                        A patient came from the Guinean border.

                        Three weeks ago, reveals our source crosscut by two members of the medical staff of the clinic, a patient - imam of his city - from the main border town in Mali with Guinea, 150 km from Bamako, was admitted to the HCF. The diagnosis was a "malaria". But a rebellious malaria which caused the death of the patient whose remains are carried in the border town to be buried. The story might have ended there if one of the nurses who followed the patient did not at his turn contracted the "same malaria" for which he was treated. He was believed cured when he relapsed a few days later when he was readmitted to the hospital. This time, he said "some characteristic symptoms of Ebola virus disease." Yesterday he succumbed early Tuesday evening. Consistent information but not confirmed by any medical authority shall state the contamination of two other providers of the clinic: the attending physician of the Imam who died and a second medical aid. Late at night, the director of the clinic recognizes the death of Ebola nurse in question.

                        Humanitarian alerted their staff

                        The day before, however, you could congratulate ourselves: the dozens of people under surveillance after the death of the girl in Kayes last month had reported no sign of disease Ebola three weeks of quarantine. The confirmed and suspected cases involving the clinic said that vigilance must be more than ever to set as recommended by the day the Malian Minister of Health. This American Ong had dissuaded by SMS his staff to go to the clinic concerned and that forty eight hours before the confirmation by the Government of Ebola cases. Minusma staff had also been warned before the official announcement of the case. With the case of the girl Kayes who traveled hundreds of kilometers in transit vehicles, a specialist of the Center of Disease Control confided the Washington Post that it is the Ebola Mali had "one of his greatest strategic advantage. "The discovery of at least one case in the clinic attended by hundreds of people every day confirms that the epidemic must be taken with the utmost seriousness by the Malians.

                          That's bad. So from this importation so far, we have one confirmed fatality (the 25M nurse), two probable fatalities (the imam and this other individual who died), and one probable case still alive (the ill doctor).

                          Counting the previous fatal confirmed case in Kayes, Mali is now 5 cases, 4 deaths as of today.

                            Background about the new case: the transmission chain starts in Guinea

                            According to the preliminary investigation, a 70-year-old male resident of Kourémalé village, in the Siguiri prefecture of Guinea, had onset of symptoms from an undiagnosed disease on 17 October. On 18 October, he was admitted to a private clinic in the mining town of Siguiri.

                            The town, which is located along Guinea’s 800 km border with Mali, was an intense focus of Ebola virus transmission from early July to mid-August.

                            As his condition did not improve, he was transferred to another clinic located just across the border in Mali. On 25 October, he travelled by car, together with 4 family members to seek treatment at the Pasteur Clinic in Bamako.

                            He was suffering from acute kidney failure, a complication often seen in late-stage Ebola virus disease. Multiple laboratory tests were performed, but not for Ebola.

                            He was treated at the Pasteur Clinic from 25 October until his death, from kidney failure, on 27 October. In addition, a friend who visited him at the clinic also died abruptly from an undiagnosed disease. Both are considered probable Ebola cases. For both, no samples are available for testing.
