Via Le Jour, a report posted at 1:27 a.m. Conakry time, about an hour ago: An outbreak of Ebola in Guinea-Conakry: the Ivorian Government takes special provisions. The Google translation:
Since the beginning of February 2014, an Ebola outbreak rages in Guinea Conakry in N'zérékoré (border CI / Guinea), with 80 cases and 59 deaths were recorded. The risk of spread of the disease to neighboring countries including Côte d'Ivoire, remains high due to significant population movements between Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire.
The Ministry of Health and the Fight against AIDS, faced with this situation, held an emergency meeting Sunday, March 23, 2014, chaired by the Chief of Staff, M Douhou Pierre to take appropriate measures. These are designed especially to protect both the medical staff and civilians.
In clear, it will strengthen epidemiological surveillance, to raise awareness on the various measures to be taken to prevent this disease, to inform regional prefects and department, and especially setting up a coordination position in Area Man.
In addition, mixed teams of WHO, INHP and the Pasteur Institute will go to support the Departmental Directors of Health of the cities that are all along the border from San Pedro to Odienné.
As can be seen, this crisis meeting chaired by the Director of Cabinet of the Ministry of Health and the Fight against AIDS and recorded the presence of the delegation of the State Ministry of the Interior Ministry Ministry of the Interior led by General Kili Fiacre take all necessary measures to curb the epidemic of Ebola fever, which is at the gateway to the Côte d'Ivoire.
It's not clear from the report, but a little digging taught me that Kili Fiacre is the head of Côte d'Ivoire's National Office of Civil Protection; these are Ivorian agencies responding to their neighbour's problem.
