Mali Records First Ebola Death – Over 10,000 Cases Recorded in West Africa (Video)
Mali recorded its first Ebola death – a two year-old girl.
The baby had 43 contacts before she died while traveling.
The BBC reported:
The number of cases in the Ebola outbreak has exceeded 10,000, with 4,922 deaths, the World Health Organization says in its latest report.
Only 27 of the cases have occurred outside the three worst-hit countries, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea.
Those three countries account for all but 10 of the fatalities.
Mali became the latest nation to record a death, a two-year-old girl. More than 40 people known to have come into contact with her have been quarantined.
The latest WHO situation report says that Liberia remains the worst affected country, with 2,705 deaths. Sierra Leone has had 1,281 fatalities and there have been 926 in Guinea.
Nigeria has recorded eight deaths and there has been one in Mali and one in the United States.
A baby with Ebola traveled more than 600 miles from Guinea to the capital, Bamako before she died. (BBC)
