No Ebola case in Guinea
Guinea, the country where the Ebola disease first surfaced, has begun its 42-day countdown to being declared Ebola-free.
The Ebola disease had surfaced in Guinea almost 2 years ago, and had killed over 11,000 people as it blazed through West Africa.
The last known patient in the country has just been released, according to the spokesman for the country’s Ebola response team, Fode Tass Sylla.
The country would have to wait until 2 life cycles of the Ebola virus, which is 42 days, to pass before the World Health Organization can declare them Ebola-free.
The country will certainly be hoping it is end of the virus’ plague, which has killed over 2500 people in the country.
