Ebola update: some additional numbers for Guinea from 17-April, WHO-AFRO update

These numbers slightly change the numbers I last posted from 18-April. 

A small uptick in deaths and lab confirmations and a change to the most recent illness onset which is now 17-Apr. The clock is still waiting to start on the 2-incubation periods required, without new cases, before the region will be declared free of Zaire ebolavirus.

18 healthcare workers are lab confirmed with Ebola virus disease, 6 are probables (24 in total) of which 15 have died (11 are lab confirmed).
