A health clinic in Conakry began an Ebola training programme on Sunday, instructing Guinean doctors on how to treat the virus and how to avoid infection.
The training was held at the ‘Polyclinic Fei-Tsui’, a hospital set up by the Chinese government and much of the training was conducted by a delegation of Chinese doctors.
One of the doctors attending the training session, Dr Moussa Dore, said that such an initiative was welcome as most Guinean health workers had still received little or no training in how to combat Ebola effectively and avoid infection.
Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are the three West African countries hardest-hit by the Ebola outbreak that has been the worst in world history.
According to the latest World Health Organisation (WHO) report released on Wednesday, there have been more than 21-thousand cases and 8,300 deaths.
In the week ending 11 January, the WHO said Guinea reported its lowest weekly total of new Ebola cases since mid-August.
