There is cautious optimism that the number of cases in the current outbreak is decreasing. However, “we never call an end to the epidemic until we’ve had 2 full 21-day cycles without any new cases, and we haven’t even done 1 cycle without a few new cases,” Dr. Fletcher explained.
As of May 9, there were 236 confirmed cases and 158 fatalities in Guinea. Of the 24 healthcare workers infected, 17 had died.
Dear Father in heaven,
We lift high the cross over Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. Amen.
