Officials in Guinea are condemning an attack on a health center where Ebola patients are being isolated from the public.

In a government statement issued Saturday, authorities said the support of aid groups such as Doctors Without Borders is essential to controlling the deadly disease.

The violence took place in the town of Macenta in southern Guinea where at least 14 people have died.

A total of 86 people have died so far from Ebola in Guinea and two other confirmed deaths have been reported in neighboring Liberia.

Aid workers have tried to inform people about how the disease is spread, though rumors and misinformation have led to panic amid the first outbreak ever in Guinea.

There is no cure for Ebola, which causes fever and severe bleeding.
