Ivory Coast Records First Case of Ebola in 25 Years

HeadlineAug 16, 2021

Ivory Coast has recorded its first case of Ebola in 25 years. Officials are tracking recent contacts of the patient, an 18-year-old woman from neighboring Guinea, who is being treated in intensive care. In June, Guinea declared the end of a four-month Ebola outbreak that killed 12 people. This comes as West Africa is experiencing a surge of COVID-19 cases, and just days after Guinea confirmed its first deadly case of Marburg disease — a highly virulent disease similar to Ebola.
