WHO Declares Guinea Free Of Ebola Virus

Guinea has reached the end of active Ebola virus transmission, the World Health Organisation said on Wednesday, the second such declaration from the country at the epicenter of the world's worst outbreak of the disease.

The proclamation was made because the person with Guinea's last confirmed case tested negative for the second time more than 42 days ago.

Guinea will now enter a 90-day period of heightened surveillance to make sure of the identification of any new cases before they spread to others.
