Young Woman Who Tested Positive For Ebola Has Recovered

A young Guinean woman who tested positive for the Ebola virus in Ivory Coast after arriving there two weeks ago has recovered from the disease, the Ivorian health ministry said.

Her diagnosis was the first confirmed case of Ebola in Ivory Coast since 1994.

The 18-year-old had travelled to Abidjan by bus from Labe in northern Guinea, a journey of about 950 miles that traverses a densely-forested region where Ebola epidemics broke out earlier this year and 2013-16.
