 Liberia's Last Confirmed Ebola Patient Discharged
Liberia discharged its last confirmed Ebola patient, as for the first time in nine months it had gone a full week without any new infections.

Beatrice Yordoldo left the Chinese-built Ebola treatment unit (ETU) in the Paynesville suburb of the capital Monrovia to cheers from healthcare workers, government officials and aid workers.

"Today I am very grateful to the almighty God and the Chinese ETU, and all of the Liberian nurses that are working with them. I did not know I could make it," said Yordoldo, who was confirmed by government officials as the country's last case in treatment.
