Another deadly virus has been reported in West Africa.
Guinea’s health officials say the disease has been dubbed “maberg”.
The country’s first death due to the virus was reported recently.
It is reported that this is the first time that a person infected with the virus has been found in West Africa.
Medical experts say the virus that causes “Maburg” is similar to the virus that causes Ebola.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says the spread of the virus must be controlled at an early stage.
Fruit bats have been linked to the “Maberg” virus, which is thought to be transmitted to humans through the body fluids.
The virus had spread to Angola in 2005.
