Ebola, one of the world's most deadly viruses, has spread from a remote forested corner of southern Guinea to the country's seaside capital, raising fears that the disease, which causes severe bleeding and almost always death, could spread far beyond this West African nation's borders.

In the first outbreak of its kind here, Ebola has already killed at least 70 people, including eight in Conakry, the capital, according to the Health Ministry.
