Ebola kills African Migrant in New York
Health minister says officials ‘really concerned’ about Ebola death .
The migrant was explosive vomiting blood on the subway.
Remy Lamah told AFP officials were “really concerned” about the death, the first since a 2013-16 epidemic
One of the latest victims in Guinea was a nurse who fell ill in late January and was buried on 1 February, National Security Agency head Sakoba Keita told local media. “Among those who took part in the burial, eight people showed symptoms: diarrhoea, vomiting and bleeding,” he said. “Three of them died and four others are in hospital.”
Keita also told local media that one patient had “escaped” but had been found and hospitalised in the capital Conakry. He confirmed the comments to AFP without giving further detail.
DRC has faced several outbreaks of the illness, with the WHO on Thursday confirming a resurgence three months after authorities declared the end of the country’s latest outbreak.
A second person who had contracted the Ebola virus died this week in the Democratic Republic of Congo, marking another outbreak just three months after the nation outlasted the virus’s second-worst outbreak in history.
The latest victim was from the North Kivu province, the World Health Organization and the DRC’s health ministry said in a statement Thursday.
This death comes one week after a 42-year-old woman died from Ebola. The wife of an Ebola survivor, she entered an intensive care unit Feb. 4 and died the same day. She was buried on Feb. 5, but not under proper burial practices to prevent the spread of Ebola; during prior outbreaks, the handling of bodies was kept to a minimum and done by trained teams.
The lab confirmed she tested positive for Ebola the day after she was buried.
During her illness, the woman was treated at three health centers after first seeking treatment following symptoms of a nosebleed on Jan. 25.
As of Feb. 8, health investigators were able to track a total of 117 contacts with the woman. It’s unclear whether the victim announced Thursday was in direct contact with the unnamed woman.
