GENEVA, Switzerland -- The World Health Organization launched a raft of emergency measures in the Guinean capital Conakry Thursday to control an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus that has so far killed a hundred people across the country.
The Geneva-based U.N. health agency announced emergency training for 70 people who would fan out across the community to track people who have had close contact with Ebola patients. The agency is also setting up a special alert and response operation center within the Guinean ministry of health in order to handle all matters relating to the Ebola scare.
