Guinea finally declared free of Ebola transmission after more than 2,500 people died from the virus in the West African nation, leaving only Liberia as the country that is still counting down the days until the end of the epidemic.
The announcement was made at a ceremony in the capital comes, 42 days after the last Ebola patient tested negative for a second time.
The world’s worst Ebola outbreak began in Gueckedou, eastern Guinea in December 2013.
This is one of the good news for the people of Guinea. Rene Migliani from Guinea’s Ebola coordination centre said that about 6,200 children have been left orphaned.
