Guinea: Border Closed Over Ebola Fears
Liberia has no Ebola patients at this point, and Sierra Leone has recently seen a fairly steady decline in cases. But the disease remains entrenched in Guinea.
Guinea’s president, Alpha Condé, said over the weekend that emergency measures would be “reinforced” for 45 days in five districts, including some on the Sierra Leone border.
Its closing was part of those measures, Cmdr. Mamadou Alpha Barry, spokesman for the national gendarmerie, said.
