WHO declares Guinea free of Ebola

Must read

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.
