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.
