April 2, 2015

Guinean President Alpha Conde has declared a 45-day “health emergency” in five regions of the Ebola-hit nation in a bid to stem the spread of the deadly disease.

The focus of the virus “has shifted to our country’s coastal areas”, the president said in a statement published in national media.

“That is why I am declaring a reinforced health emergency for a period of 45 days in the prefectures of Forecariah, Coyah, Dubreka, Boffa and Kindia,” he said.

The regions affected are in the west and southwest of the country.

In the capital Conakry, “strict measures will be taken to increase vigilance in communities,” the president added.
