Last Known Ebola Patient in Sierra Leone Discharged

The last known Ebola patient in Sierra Leone has been released, the World Health Organization says.

The 35-year-old patient was discharged from a treatment center in the northern part of the country on Monday morning, BBC News reported.

No new infections have been reported in Sierra Leone for more than two weeks, the National Ebola Response Center says. However, the country still has 28 people in quarantine, who will continue to be monitored until the end of the week.

While Sierra Leone has not reported any new Ebola cases in the past 17 days, neighboring Guinea reported three new infections in the week up to Aug. 19, according to BBC News.
