Authorities in Guinea declared they have managed to stop an outbreak of deadly Ebola fever from spreading while the deaths from suspected infections rose to at least 63. 

In neighboring Liberia authorities also recorded eight suspected cases of Ebola, most of them were people who crossed the border from Guinea. 

Guinean authorities have put the suspected patients in quarantine in the districts of Guekedou, Macenta, Nzerekore and Kissidougou. 

It is believed that bats are the main source of the virus, but it is yet not clear how it crossed the continent from Sudan, Congo and Uganda.
