Mali confirms first infection case


The Malian government has confirmed the first case of Ebola in the country.

It said a two-year-old girl had tested positive for the haemorrhagic virus. Reports say she recently returned from the neighbouring Guinea.

More than 4,800 people have died of Ebola - mainly in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone - since March.

Meanwhile, an international team of scientists has been set up to determine the effectiveness of using the blood of Ebola survivors as a treatment.,X6i7lZuddXo5e7aIDZ6SGimqxdmEH9FAeDlE54cSMavKSfqDKXmzG6NHmhjlMNzKI7jIZpU2JXxWyHBonnrjApX5EZ79ZyNsYUStjewlUin1JFZ-sWLizpBCWYPsHfR7NCo9EufENn9s31sjr7MioE7KKmyrUyHLDoWt6bV7EdmEznroGLLXOIF4_0tTxSUbwCVW63e93qK7A2yZ


One of the reasons the WHO predicts this epidemic will worsen and spread, is the movement of people towards work in other areas or countries, said to occur around this time of year. I wonder how she got infected, poor child. Hopefully the Nigeria’s recent success can be replicated in Mali.
