Guinea reports 27 new Ebola cases

After lull in country where epidemic started

(ANSA) - Rome, May 22 - Authorities in Guinea, the country where the Ebola epidemic began, are concerned about a new outbreak of cases just as officials hoped the crisis was coming under control.
    Guinea has recorded 27 new cases within a week, compared to seven in the previous week, according to the World Health Organization.
    Health officials are particularly alarmed that some of the cases are in an area near the border with Guinea-Bissau, a deeply impoverished country with very few functioning health care centers.
