Ebola outbreak in Guinea

On Monday the Irish Times reported an outbreak of Ebola, stating that three people had died and another five tested positive. The last major outbreak of Ebola in West Africa started in Guinea in 2013, with the countries most affected being Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Over 11,300 people died from the disease. It is hoped that the outbreak can be restricted and that the same problems may not occur again.
