On 21 March the Government of Guinea confirmed a suspected Viral Haemorrhagic fever outbreak that had been developing since early February as Ebola. As of 10 April there have been 66 laboratory confirmed cases of Ebola and outbreak response activities have been ramped up significantly in Guinea as well as neighbouring Liberia. Communities in all three countries are at risk and initial cases have already been detected in the Lofa county in Liberia, resulting in three deaths.
