Via StarAfrica.com, an APA report: Ebola fears in Sudan's oilfields spread - Africa - News. Excerpt:
Fears have spread in the oil-rich Sudanese state of West Kordofan after four suspected cases of Ebola were alleged among oil workers in the area, medical sources disclosed on Saturday. The sources confirmed that two civilians died from an infection in El Muglad city , and two other infected remain in the hospital of El Fula, West Kordofan.
They claimed that the cases were all showed symptoms of Ebola may qualify for the deadly virus.
Medical source from El Fula hospital said that the hospital treated the two patients the same as patients with hemorrhagic fever.
"The two cases are now isolated and receiving treatment as hemorrhagic fever till further blood investigation diagnosis about the type of the hemorrhagic fever," he added.
Sudanese authorities have repeatedly denied any cases of Ebola in the country despite many local media reports indicated that there are suspected cases in Darfur region.
Radio Dabanga has the story also. This is highly unlikely to be related to the West African outbreak, though it may be connected with the DR Congo. WHO reminds us that Ebola first broke out simultaneously in Yambuku, DR Congo, and Nzara, in what is now the independent nation of South Sudan. I gather from Google Maps that West Kordofan is well to the north of Nzara, but this could also be a third distinct outbreak.
