CAF lifts Guinea ban
Following their successful eradication of the Ebola virus, the Confederation of African Football has lifted its ban of Guinea.
The country had been previously banned from hosting games due to the presence of the virus in the country, which was declared Ebola-free by the World Health Organization just before the new year.
“CAF has learned with joy and relief the announcement by the World Health Organization (WHO) on December 29, 2015, officially confirming that Guinea is now declared Ebola free,” a letter to the president of the Guinean Football Federation, Salifou Camara from CAF General Secretary, Hicham El Amrani read.
“CAF thereby confirms lifting the ban on the organization of continental matches in Guinea, and for all competitions organized by CAF.”
