Benin waiting for test results on two possible Ebola cases
AFP
11 minutes ago

Cotonou (AFP) - Benin said Thursday that it has placed two patients with Ebola-like symptoms in isolation and was waiting for test results to establish if the pair were infected with the deadly tropical disease.

Deputy chief of staff at the health ministry, Moufalilou Aboubakar, told journalists that the two patients were being treated as suspected cases of Ebola and that blood samples had been sent to foreign labs for conclusive results.

"We cannot say today that the virus is in Benin," Aboubakar told reporters. "The patients are in isolation and under observation pending the results of the ongoing tests."

If the patients are confirmed to have Ebola, Benin would become the fifth country in the region to be hit by the outbreak.

One patient was identified as a Nigerian man being treated at a hospital in the capital Porto-Novo.

The other is at hospital in the economic capital Cotonou.

Tiny Benin shares a border with Nigeria, which has recorded seven Ebola cases including two deaths in its largest city Lagos.

Cotonou is just a few hours drive from Lagos and there is significant traffic between the two cities each day, especially among traders.

The deadliest ever outbreak of Ebola is spreading quickly across west Africa.

Nearly 1,000 people have died from the virus since the start of the year, mostly in Liberia and Sierra Leone -- which have both imposed emergency measures to contain the spread -- and Guinea, where the outbreak began.

A Nigerian man who may have Ebola, is hospitalized in the African country of Benin. Authorities in the capital Cotonou samples taken from the patient and sent to Senegal for checking. Health Minister Dorothée Gazard has announced that in a televised speech today.

There is no confirmation that the man really has ebola, but the news has spread fear in the capital. People are beaten hoarding and food no longer in the many food stalls along the sides of the road for fear of infection, reported eyewitnesses.

Porto-Novo (Benin), Aug 8: A patient at a hospital in Benin's capital city of Porto-Novo has been diagnosed with symptoms of Ebola virus disease. According to health officials, the person was admitted after he reached the capital from Nigeria, Xinhua reported. The suspected case will only be confirmed after the analyses of his blood samples are completed, the officials said. The World Health Organisation (WHO) Friday declared the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa as an international health emergency. It noted that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa constituted an "extraordinary event" and a public health risk to other countries. The current Ebola outbreak started in Guinea in December 2013. It has now manifested itself in Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone besides Guinea. As of Aug 4, the countries have reported 1,711 cases (1,070 confirmed, 436 probable, 205 suspect), including 932 deaths. The virus is spread through direct contact with the bodily fluids of those infected. "This is currently the largest EVD outbreak ever recorded," the UN body said. IANS
