    The government of Mali says it is doing its best to try and contain the Ebola virus as the country's first victim, a toddler, is set to be buried.

    The two-year-old girl had travelled to Mali from Guinea, where the outbreak first began. Her death has sparked panic and neighbouring Mauritania closed its border.
