Ebola may have spiked Guinea’s malaria deaths

“The Ebola outbreak in Guinea may have led to 74,000 new cases of malaria going untreated, causing a spike in malaria deaths likely to be much higher than the Ebola toll, researchers said on Wednesday. During the Ebola outbreak in 2014, visits to health centers in Guinea fell by 42 percent in the worst affected areas, as many people held back from seeking medical help from fear of contracting the disease, said a report published in the medical journal Lancet Infectious Diseases.”
