The World Health Organisation has reported a further case of the Ebola virus in Guinea’s capital Conakry… its first in more than a month.

There have also been cases in previously unaffected areas in the past week.

Earlier the Guinean authorities said the two-month-old outbreak had been contained.

Its spread risks further complicating the fight against the disease in a region already struggling with weak healthcare systems and porous borders.

The WHO has documented a total of 281 clinical cases of Ebola in West Africa since the virus was first identified in March.

Ebola has a fatality rate of up to 90 percent.
