“The plane was redirected to Senegal, ” the Conakry WHO office said on Twitter late Sunday.

According to the latest WHO data, there are eight Ebola cases in Guinea, four of them have been confirmed.
One death from Ebola has been confirmed in the country, while four suspected Ebola deaths are under investigation.

This is the first time since 2016 that Ebola has been detected in the country.
The WHO has already started supporting Liberia, Sierra Leone, and the Democratic Republic of Congo amid emerging new Ebola cases.
