New Case of Ebola Confirmed in Mali

A new case of Ebola has been confirmed in Mali, and two more people are being tested on suspicion they may be infected with the virus, government officials said Saturday.

Five people have died of Ebola in Mali already, and health officials are worried that the disease might spread further in that African country, the Associated Press reported.

A government statement issued Saturday said the latest Ebola patient "was placed in an isolation center for intensive treatment," the AP reported. Currently, more than 300 people in Mali who had some contact with Ebola patients are being monitored for signs of the disease.

"The new cases in Mali remind us that no country in the region is immune to Ebola," Manuel Fontaine, UNICEF regional director for West and Central Africa, said in a statement Friday, the AP reported.

Of the more than 5,400 people who have died in the current outbreak, most of the deaths have occurred in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to the World Health Organization.

Sierra Leone has recorded more than 1,200 Ebola deaths, and only 13 percent of Sierra Leone's Ebola patients were being isolated, according to a WHO report released last week.
