Second Ebola outbreak declared end in Guinea

The World Health Organization confirmed on Saturday that Guinea’s second Ebola outbreak, which began on February 14, has come to an end.

“I have the honour of declaring the end of Ebola” in Guinea, WHO official Alfred Ki-Zerbo said at a ceremony in the southeastern Nzerekore region where the disease surfaced at the end of January.

It was the country’s second Ebola outbreak since the deadly 2013-2016 Ebola epidemic in West Africa, which claimed the lives of 11,300 people in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
