Guinea’s last Ebola patient was discharged from the treatment centre over the weekend.

The World Health Organization (WHO) said this marked the beginning of a 42-day countdown to declare the end of Ebola outbreak in the country.

WHO tweeted a photo of the last patient leaving the facility:

In February, Guinea declared it was dealing with Ebola after reporting its first death since 2016.

The WHO responded with newly developed vaccines to contain the epidemic that claimed thousands of lives in several West African countries between 2013 and 2016.
