CONAKRY, April 3 (Xinhua) -- Guinea's health authorities has said four new Ebola cases have been reported in the country, bringing the total number of Ebola cases to 134 out of which 84 have died.

The disease is mostly widespread in the southern regions of Gueckedou, Macenta, Kissidougou and the capital Conakry.

To curb the spread of the epidemic, the government has taken certain measures that include setting up medical isolation centers in the affected regions, disinfection of homes with suspected cases or where Ebola patients have died and mobilization of necessary resources to provide individual protective materials to the most affected zones.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has equally proceeded to distribute hygiene kits to schools in areas most hit by the Ebola virus.
