The World Health Organisation has warned that a toddler who brought Ebola to Mali was bleeding from her nose during her journey on public transport and may have infected many people.

The WHO said it is treating the situation in Mali as an emergency.

The two-year-old girl, who travelled from Guinea with her grandmother, tested positive for Ebola yesterday. That makes Mali the sixth West African country to record a case of the disease.

The WHO said that the girl and her grandmother passed through several towns in Mali on their trip from Guinea and spent two hours in the Malian capital of Bamako before ending up in the western city of Kayes.
