It is spread through contact with bodily fluids of infected people, or by contact with contaminated surfaces and materials. The WHO said that we appreciate the vigilance and prompt action taken by the health workers of Guinea.
According to Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO regional director for Africa, the potential for the Marburg virus to spread far and wide means that we need to stop it as soon as possible.
