Mali: New Ebola case reported in Mali

Bamako, Mali (PANA) – A new case of Ebola disease whose results tested positive was Sunday admitted to Mali's national isolation centre (CNAM) for intensive treatment, according to Monday's daily update from the centre.

It said that at least 310 contact-people have been listed by the health services and placed under surveillance.

So far the Ebola death toll in Mali is put at five. Four occurred in Bamako and were linked to a Guinean patient, while a two-year-old girl died in Kayes.

The Malian government has thanked the international community for its significant support in the fight against the disease and its solidarity with the Malian government and people.

Prime Minister Moussa Mara, accompanied by UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé and a WHO delegation, on Sunday visited the humanitarian corridors in Kourémalé, a village straddling the border with Guinea, to evaluate the efforts made to control risks at the border.
