DAKAR, September 10, 2014 (AFP) - A Guinean student who was Senegal's only confirmed case in the deadly Ebola epidemic has recovered, the health ministry said on Wednesday.
Senegal became the fifth country affected by the West African outbreak when the student crossed the border just before it closed on August 21.
"We conducted two sets of tests. He no longer has the virus. He is cured," said Pape Amadou Diack, director of health at the ministry.
