According to the information available on BBC’s website, the country in the sub-Saharan part of Africa, Guinea is to be declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The deadly virus has plagued the country for two years now and residents are expected to celebrate the declaration with concerts and fireworks.
The disease killed more than 2,500 people in the country and a further 9,000 in Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Sierra Leone was declared free of Ebola in November, but new cases have emerged in Liberia, which had been declared Ebola-free in September.
A country is considered free of human-to-human transmission once two 21-day incubation periods have passed since the last known case tested negative for a second time.
The government has blamed the virus for poor economic performance and says it has also caused people to distrust the country’s health services.
President Alpha Conde has since doubled the health budget after winning re-election in November.
The development is seen as good news and a means to the end of the deadly Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) on the African continent.
