Ghana has confirmed its first two cases of the deadly Marburg virus, a highly infectious disease in the same family as the virus that causes Ebola. It says both patients died recently in a hospital in the southern Ashanti region. Their samples came back positive earlier this month and have now been verified by a laboratory in Senegal. Health officials in the West African nation say 98 people are now under quarantine as suspected contact cases. These include relatives, medics, and mortuary workers who came into contact with the two patients.
This is the second time that Marburg has been identified in West Africa. There was one confirmed case in Guinea last year, but that outbreak was declared over in September, five weeks after the case was discovered. The World Health Organization (WHO), which is supporting Ghana’s health authorities, has praised the country’s swift response.

Robert Lewandowski is officially a Barcelona player, with a €50 million (£42m/$51m) transfer from Bayern Munich being completed, and the Poland international striker has been explaining why a new challenge is being taken on at 33 years of age. After eight memorable years in Germany that delivered 344 goals and 19 trophies, a two-time winner of the FIFA Best Award is ready to start afresh at Camp Nou.
Staying at the Allianz Arena and seeing out the final year of his contract there would have been the easy option for Lewandowski, while various clubs expressed interest once it became apparent that he would be on the move this summer, but a modern-day great say Catalunya was the only destination for him.
Speaking to the club’s official media, Lewandowski has said of his decision to link up with La Liga heavyweights: “I’m here to help the club return to the top and win as many titles as possible. I have always wanted to play in a great La Liga club and this is a great opportunity for me. It is also a challenge for my private life. I am a player who always wants to win. We have great players, with a lot of quality, in the squad. I am excited about what we can all achieve together.”
