    The measures launched in the Guinean capital of Conakry include training 70 people who will track those who had contact with the sick across the country. The agency is also opening a special operation center in the Guinean Health Ministry to handle all matters related to the Ebola scare. The latest WHO figures show 157 people have been infected with the deadly virus in Guinea. 101 of them have died. Ebola has also killed ten people in neighboring Liberia where 21 cases have been identified.
