H5N1: Guinea: More Ebola cases reported in Conakry, interior

So Guinea now sees a big jump in total cases, from 88 to 112, and a rise in deaths from 66 to 70. (Not all VHF cases may be Ebola, but that’s a distinction lost on the dead.)

We also have confirmation of the report of the two healthcare workers at Kipé, and we have an example of how a simple and loving ritual—the touching of a loved one’s body before burial—can have a disastrous effect on other family members.
