Cameroon’s Minister of Public Health has said that no-one has been infected with the Marbug virus in the country.
Manaouda Malachie confirmed earler reports that there had been two suspected cases in the Olamze area in the south, but added that they both tested negative.
Earlier reports had said Health officials in Cameroon detected two suspected cases of the Marburg virus close to the border with Equatorial Guinea, where there is an outbreak of the deadly haemorrhagic fever.
Neither of the pair had travelled across the frontier.
Officials are now trying to track down everyone they have been in contact with.
The World Health Organization has sent more contact tracing teams to eastern Equatorial Guinea to try to contain the spread of the virus.
