The Ebola outbreak in Guinea has reached the capital Conakry. The strain has been confirmed as Ebola Zaire, the worst of the five known strains.
* Ebola Zaire: 80-90 % fatal.
* Ebola Sudan: 50% fatal
* Ebola Bundibugyo: 25% fatal
* Ebola Cote d’Ivoire: only 2 cases recorded, both survived
* Ebola Reston: no known human cases so far, though five people have been found with the antibodies to Reston in their system.
The disease has travelled 526 miles from Nzerekore to Conakry since Wednesday. It is a highly infectious disease and there are fears that community spread has already occurred.
The fatality rate in the current outbreak is 63%, this equates to 70 deaths out of 111. So concerned is the Senegal government that they have closed their borders with Guinea until further notice. Eight cases have now been isolated in the capital Conakry.
