Guinea to commence fresh Ebola countdown as last reported case, a baby girl, leaves hospital

Liberia Races To Expand Ebola Treatment Facilities, As U.S....

Guinea's last known Ebola patient has been released from the hospital on Saturday, Nov 28. The one-month-old baby, Nubia was born Ebola positive. Her mother eventually died during childbirth due to significant blood loss. Being cared for by Doctors without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres), she had more than 15 staff members, including doctors, closely monitoring her progress such as her heart rate and breathing. 

The baby also received experimental anti-viral drugs such as ZMapp, which has also been used on other survivors including US Dr. Kent Bently, and GS-5734 by Gilead Sciences.

Following the recovery of baby Nubia, Guinea can already begin 42 days countdown to being officially declared Ebola-free if no new cases are reported.
