Decreasing number of doctors in Guinea

In a country that had begun 2014 with a shortage of healthcare professionals, the Ebola epidemic has greatly depleted the number of doctors in Guinea. In fact, the epidemic was so devastating that an unprecedented number of volunteers became infected and died. For the past three weeks, Guinea has witnessed a surge in new Ebola cases. Within this increase adds the deaths of three additional physicians according to Reuters. "The outbreak that began in Eastern Guinea more than a year ago has killed over 10,000 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. These West African countries were initially the worst affected and had now appeared to be on their way to recovery. However, Guinea has seen a rise in new cases of Ebola for three consecutive weeks, according to World Health Organization data." The U.N.'s Ebola emergency response mission UNMEER cites the incorrect burial(not in compliance with the recommendations for the burial of an Ebola patient) of a woman who had died from Ebola central to the string of new infections.
