The latest business continuity news from around the world

WHO has dispatched a team of specialists to the southern prefecture of Nzérékoré in Guinea after two new cases of Ebola were detected and confirmed in a rural village.

In coordination with Guinea’s Ministry of Health, WHO has deployed an initial team of epidemiologists, surveillance experts, vaccinators, social mobilizers, contact tracers and an anthropologist to support an inter-agency response. Response teams will work to investigate the origin of the new infections and to identify, isolate, vaccinate and monitor all contacts of the new cases and those who died.

WHO states that recurrences of Ebola should be anticipated and that Ebola-affected countries must maintain a strong capacity to prevent, detect and respond to disease outbreaks.
