|URGENT NEED - EBOLA OUTBREAK IN GUINEA|
URGENT NEED FOR INTENSIVISTS
An Ebola viral hemorrhagic fever outbreak in Guinea has spread to involve neighbouring countries, Sierra Leone and Liberia. There has been an increasing number of cases, with the current estimate of suspected cases at 103 responsible for 63 deaths, including a limited number of health care workers. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is helping to provide a coordinating role and supplying technical and clinical support. Guinea does not have substantial recent experience with viral hemorrhagic fever, and the country's health infrastructure is very limited.
