National Public Health Agency Refutes Ebola Rumors in Guinea

The National Public Health Agency, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, has released an official statement in response to the recent circulation of unfounded rumors suggesting the presence of an Ebola case within the neighboring country of Guinea. The aforementioned agencies have unequivocally affirmed that these rumors are entirely devoid of truth and lack any credible basis.

Dr. Sory Conde, a representative of the Guinean health authorities, has emphatically confirmed that, as of the present date of February 8th, 2024, there have been no confirmed cases of Ebola Virus Disease within the nation.

Furthermore, it is imperative to note that the World Health Organization's (WHO) country office situated in Freetown has not received any official notifications or reports that substantiate the aforementioned claims.

Contrary to the speculative narratives circulating, the Guinean authorities have officially reported the presence of a confirmed case of Lassa fever within the Nzerekore region. This particular region is recognized for its endemic status with regard to Lassa fever.

The National Public Health Agency and the Ministry of Health wish to convey their unwavering commitment to providing the public with timely and accurate updates pertaining to matters of public health.

The aim of this official announcement is to alleviate any unwarranted concerns regarding the potential spread of Ebola and to provide the general public with a factual and reliable account of the current state of public health within the region.
