Dr Matshidiso Moeti, the World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Director for Africa, has reacted to reports of four suspected Ebola deaths in Guinea.

In her reaction,  Moeti, in a tweet on Sunday @MoetiTshidi, expressed concern over the development.

Already Guinea’s Ministry of Health has reported that four people died of Ebola in a resurgence of the disease that first emerged five years ago.

According to Moeti, “WHO is ramping up readiness and response efforts to this potential resurgence of Ebola in West Africa, a region which suffered so much from Ebola in 2014,’’ Moeti said.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) recorded a fresh case of Ebola in the North Kivu province of the country.
