Mali takes measures in wake of new Ebola deaths

12 November 2014, 15:18

Bamako - A Malian official says the country has two new Ebola deaths that are not connected to the first case in this West African country.

Mali reported its first case last month — a 2-year-old girl who contracted the virus in neighboring Guinea and later died.

On Wednesday, officials announced that a sick imam had died from Ebola in the capital, Bamako. A nurse who treated him has also died.

Communications Minister Mahamadou Camara said Wednesday that tests had confirmed the patient and nurse at Clinique Pasteur both had Ebola.

The emergence of the new cases is an alarming setback for Mali, which had recorded only one known death until now.

Nearly 5,000 people have died in West Africa this year, many of them in Guinea, which borders Mali.
