(VOA / Worthy News)– The virus has killed more than 200 people since it appeared in southeastern Guinea in February. It is spread through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, even after that person dies.
Dozens of new ebola cases have been reported in Guinea and across the border in Sierra Leone since the end of May. The disease is rebounding in some areas and cropping up for the first time in others.
There is no cure for ebola, and health workers try to isolate suspected cases. This outbreak has had about a 70 percent fatality rate.
