Via BBC News: Virus in Guinea capital Conakry not Ebola. Excerpt:
Tests on suspected cases of deadly Ebola virus in Guinea's capital Conakry are negative, health officials say.
On Sunday, UN officials said that the virus had spread to the capital, a port city of up to two million, from remote forests in the south, where some 59 people have died.
But a World Health Organization (WHO) spokesman told the BBC the Conakry tests had come back negative.
Ebola is spread by close contact and kills between 25% and 90% of victims.
There is no known cure or vaccine.
Symptoms include internal and external bleeding, diarrhoea and vomiting.
After two people died from a haemorrhagic fever in Conakry, samples were sent to the Pasteur Institute in neighbouring Senegal for testing.
WHO spokesman Collins Boakye-Agyemang told the BBC these had shown that the victims had not been infected with Ebola. It is not clear what killed them.
