Tanzania is refusing to provide detailed information on suspected Ebola cases, the World Health Organization said on Sunday

The World Health Organization (WHO) has come out to criticize the government of Tanzania for failing to report an Ebola situation within its borders.

“Identified contacts of the deceased were unofficially reported to be quarantined in various sites in the country,” VOA quoted the agency.

The organization claimed it received the report of a dead woman on 10th September, two days after she succumbed to Ebola.

According to reports, it is said that the 34-year-old woman had travelled to Uganda. On August 10th, it is alleged that the woman started suffering from Ebola-like symptoms.

East African countries are currently on high alert as the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo seems to be spreading in neighbouring countries.

The yearlong outbreak has so far claimed over 2000 lives.
