Mali: Last Known Ebola Case Cured, Released

Friday, 12 Dec 2014 06:35 AM

The Malian Health Ministry says the last Ebola patient being treated in the country has survived the disease and been released.

The ministry said in a statement posted on its website Friday that the patient was discharged a day earlier after several Ebola tests came back negative.

Mali has recorded eight cases of Ebola, all of them linked to people who crossed from neighboring Guinea. The ministry said that the country now has no confirmed or suspected cases, but authorities are still monitoring 26 people who had contact with the sick. A person infected with Ebola can take up to 21 days to show symptoms.

Ebola, which was first identified in Guinea in this outbreak, has sickened more than 18,100 people, killing about 6,500 of them.
