    An Ebola outbreak in Guinea in west Africa has put six bordering nations on alert, while the World Health Organization has begun a mass vaccination programme.

    So far, 18 people have contracted the virus and nine have died.

    In neighbouring Liberia, they have begun preparing for the worst again.

    Only seven years ago the virus came across the Guinea border and nearly 5,000 people died. The survivors still bear the mental and physical scars and this latest outbreak is bringing back difficult memories.

    This is our second special report from Liberia.

    In This Story: Guinea

    Guinea is a country in West Africa, bordered on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. Formerly known as French Guinea (French: Guinée française), the modern country is sometimes referred to as Guinea-Conakry to distinguish it from other countries with “Guinea” in the name.

    It’s known for the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, in the southeast. The reserve protects a forested mountain range rich in native plants and animals, including chimpanzees and the viviparous toad. On the coast, the capital city, Conakry, is home to the modern Grand Mosque and the National Museum.
