Guinea begins 42-day countdown to declaring Ebola free status

Health officials in Guinea said the country can now begin its 42-day countdown to declaring an end to Ebola outbreak, after the last patient recovered.

Fodé Sylla, Spokesman for Guinea's Ebola Coordination Unit, said on Wednesday in Conakry that a baby girl, who was the last known Ebola patient in a two-year regional epidemic, has recovered from the disease.

Sylla said the two tests ran on the baby turned up negative, indicating that she was completely cured of Ebola.

So we can expect that the worst Ebola outbreak to officially end  in 42 days, as long as no new case turns up. Yippee!

Just in case you missed it, here's the celebratory Bye-bye Ebola video.
