Allen pledged $100 million to help tackle the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the single largest private gift to fight the disease.

LAGOS, NIGERIA—Guinea is preparing for its second presidential election since returning to democracy in 2010. But a survey shows many are distrustful of the election authorities.
Incumbent leader Alpha Conde is seeking a second term in Sunday's election. His main challenger is former prime minister Cellou Dalein Diallo, who ran against Conde in the 2010 vote and lost.
No confirmed cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) were reported in the week to 4 October. This is the first time that a complete epidemiological week has elapsed with zero confirmed cases since March 2014. All contacts have now completed follow-up in Sierra Leone. However, over 500 contacts remain under follow-up in Guinea, and several high-risk contacts associated with active and recently active chains of transmission in Guinea and Sierra Leone have been lost to follow-up. There remains a near-term risk of further cases.

CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC (CAR) CALM SLOWLY RETURNING IN BANGUI
Calm is gradually returning in Bangui following the eruption of violence on 26 September in which at least 42 people were killed, over 300 injured and 37,000 displaced. Businesses, public transport and other activities are slowly resuming in the city centre. However, there are still barricades on certain roads and criminal activities have been reported in various neighbourhoods.

Elections in Burkina Faso have been postponed following a coup d’état in mid-September, and violence in the Central African Republic (CAR) might see the polls in that country, planned for 18 October, also being postponed. Elections are meanwhile going ahead in Guinea on 11 October and in Côte d’Ivoire and Tanzania on 25 October. Presidential elections are also being held in Benin and Niger in February 2016.
