BAMAKO (AFP) - Mali announced Saturday a new case of Ebola in a man who is fighting for his life in an intensive care unit in the capital Bamako.

"Among two suspected cases who were being tested, one was found negative, the other positive. He was placed in an isolation unit for intensive treatment," the health ministry said in a statement.

Mali, the newest country to be caught up in the epidemic, recorded its seventh Ebola death on Thursday. So far no one who has contracted the deadly tropical pathogen in the West African country has survived.

World Bank President Jim Yong Kim warned Friday that despite gains against the deadly epidemic the new outbreak in Mali was "very worrisome".

BAMAKO (Reuters) - Mali has recorded a new case of Ebola in the capital Bamako after the friend of a nurse who died of the haemorrhagic fever earlier this month tested positive for the disease, the health ministry said on Saturday.
The nurse contracted the disease after treating an imam from neighbouring Guinea, who died after being incorrectly diagnosed with kidney problems. This allowed Ebola to spread to five other people in the West African nation's second outbreak.
"Of two suspected cases tested, one was negative and the other positive. The latter was placed in an isolation centre for intensive treatment," a statement from the ministry said, adding that another 310 contact cases were being monitored.
A total of 5,459 people have died in the worst Ebola outbreak on record, according the World Health Organization (WHO). Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia account for all but 15 of them.
Of the six previously known cases of the disease in Mali, all have died, the WHO said on Friday.
