MOSCOW, November 28. /TASS/. Russian virologists who are staying in Guinea to fight Ebola fever are expanding their work and will continue fighting the virus at one more hospital, the chief of Russian consumer standards agency told TASS on Friday.

“This is planned that our specialists will keep working not only with a hospital in the capital of the Republic of Guinea, but also with another one which is being built 50 kilometres away,” chief of the country’s consumer rights watchdog Anna Popova said, noting that “Our specialists plan to co-operate there with Cuban partners. They have already met and are developing further working tactics.”

Russian epidemiologists have been staying in Guinea since August 22. They will keep working in that country until it is needed, she said. The first team of specialists has been fully replaced now, Popova noted.

“We have already made a large number of tests for Guinea, for instance, helped to differentiate diseases and make accurate diagnoses, so, to find in which cases people were infected with Ebola and when they contracted malaria or other diseases,” the Russian consumer standards agency’s head said.

According to World Health Organization’s latest reports, a total 15,935 were infected in an Ebola outbreak in West Africa, particularly 5,689 lethal cases were reported.
