Mali is next country with an Ebola case; Nigeria and Senegal free of this disease

A two year old child, originally from Guinea, has been diagnosed with Ebola in Bamako. Many contacts have been placed in quarantine and are being monitored for signs of illness. It is too early to to say if there will be any spread from this initial infection. At present the risk of exposure to Ebola remains very low for travellers to Mali.

Meanwhile, the total number of cases of this infection in the three affected countries is nearly 10,000 cases with slightly more than 4,800 deaths. The appearance of Ebola in Nigeria and Senegal has been contained, and these countries have been declared free of the disease.
