Cameroon finds suspected Marburg cases near Equatorial Guinea.

Health officials in Cameroon have reportedly detected two suspected cases of the Marburg virus close to the border with Equatorial Guinea, where there is an outbreak of the deadly haemorrhagic fever.

Officials are now trying to track down everyone they have been in contact with even as neither of the pair had travelled across the frontier.

The World Health Organization has sent more contact tracing teams to eastern Equatorial Guinea to contain the spread of the virus.

Nine people are thought to have died from the disease in Equatorial Guinea where there are sixteen suspected cases.
