There's an Ebola outbreak in Guinea that has claimed the lives of many.
The cause has been traced to a special delicacy made from bats. These bats were reported to have carried the Ebola virus which were then transmitted to the victims when they ate them.
The World Health Organization reports that this virus kills about 25% - 95% of its victims.
Symptoms include bleeding, diarrhea and vomiting.
A few interventions have been put in place to manage the situation. However, 62 people have already been reported dead in Guinea while neighboring places like Liberia and Sierra Leone have also been seen to have a few reported cases of Ebola.
Have you heard of the Ebola virus before?
