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.
