文字稿

The World Health Organisation says the Ebola outbreak in Guinea is officially over, two years after it first emerged there. More than 11,000 people have died of the disease. Most of them have been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Health officials though still warning there could be sporadic outbreaks of Ebola.

世界卫生组织宣布在几内亚爆发的埃博拉疫情正式结束,这距首次在当地发现该疾病已时隔两年。两年来,埃博拉病毒导致超过11000人死亡,而且,绝大多数发生在几内亚,利比里亚和塞拉利昂。但是,卫生官员仍然发出警告,不排除埃博拉病毒零星爆发的可能性。

A good news story now about a medical advance. London's air ambulance is trialling a handheld scanner - called the Infrascanner - that can detect potentially life-threatening brain injuries. The device can spot clots on the surface of the brain which, left untreated, could lead to disability or death.
