Angola’s Marburg Count Up to 327

News that is somewhat less than good:

The Marburg toll in Angola rose to 327 on Friday when 8 new cases were recorded in the Ministry of Health’s daily report. …

The difference between the number of cases and the number of deaths has risen to 40, indicating new cases are being added faster than old patients can die, which is another indication that the Marburg virus remains quite active.

Angola’s neighbors have taken note. Zimbabwe joins the list of nations advising its citizens against traveling to Angola.
