WHO declares Guinea free of Ebola


Guinea has been declared free of Ebola by the World Health Organisation.

It means there have been no new infections for 42 days.

Tow-and-a-half thousand people have died from the disease in the West African country and over six thousand children have been left orphans.

A country is considered free of human-to-human transmission once two 21-day incubation periods have passed since the last known case tested negative for a second time.
