Tanzania says its outbreak of the Marburg virus is over. Presence of the haemorrhagic fever was first confirmed in March, in the north-western Kagera region.

There were nine cases and six people died.

The World Health Organisation said its joint action with Tanzania on an emergency response had enabled the authorities to limit the impacts of a highly infectious disease.

The Marburg virus can have a fatality rate of up to 88%.
