    DAKAR, Sept 10 (Reuters) - The first case of the Ebola virus detected in Senegal, a 21-year-old student who arrived from neighbouring Guinea last month, has recovered from the deadly disease, a senior official said on Wednesday.

    "We did a first blood test on Friday and a second 48 hours later and both of them came back negative," Papa Amadou Diack, Senegal's director of health, told Reuters. "This is very good news for the patient and for the country.

      It seems unusual to say that the two suspect cases were waiting for the results of a second test without mentioning the results of the first test.

      Was the first test negative an we are waiting for a second result to confirm it, or have the two suspects tested positive once?

      And who exactly are the two suspects? Notably, they are not in the same district as the confirmed case.
      Hat-tip Pathfinder. Both suspects have been discarded as NEGATIVE:

        In addition, all alerts recorded in recent days were negative to tests by the Pasteur Institute in Dakar.

        As a result, on today's date, Senegal count no case of the Ebola virus disease.

        The Government appealed to the International Community to take account of this new situation.

        Vigilance remains essential. The surveillance and response and continues to be strengthened across the country, especially at land, air and sea borders.

        A humanitarian corridor is being developed in Dakar to facilitate the operations of humanitarian organizations assistance to countries affected by the epidemic.

          Cured of Ebola: The young Guinean wants to go home for rituals and return to Senegal

          Written Friday, September 12, 2014 at 11:14 am | |

          Mamadou Aliou Diallo, a young Guinean cured of the disease Ebola virus after treatment with the infectious diseases Fann, wants to go home in Guinea. But, just the time to do rituals to ward off evil spirits and return to Senegal.

          This is the Health Minister Awa Marie Coll Seck who disclosed this at a meeting of the Convergence of Executives of Apr. Information that has sparked murmurs in the audience who apparently wants the departure of the young Guinean. Yet, says L'As, the recovered patient may be useful to the Senegalese and international scientific community in the fight against Ebola virus. Because according to the Minister of Health, had it not been an ethical issue, he could be kept and used in Senegal as part of the search for vaccine against the virus. Researchers will need to extract its antibodies to find a cure. But Awa Marie Coll Seck stresses that it will take the consent of the young Guinean student. "There are 800 other cases cured in the sub-region and that could serve the purpose for researchers," she said . The Health Minister regretted the way WHO listed countries where there is the Ebola virus. WHO says that even if there is one case of Ebola in a country, it is automatically classified among the epidemiological countries. This is not good because the disease has very serious "economic impact.

                    Ebola: the plane of the Guinean student cured of the disease in Senegal prohibits landing home

                    It was an eventful trip for Mamadou Diallo A., young Guinean cured of Ebola and embarked Friday on a special military flight to Guinea. Conakry has indeed refused the landing of the Senegalese plane , prompting the crew to land at the airfield of Kedougou. It is from this Senegalese region that Diallo returned to his country via road.

                    The axis-Conakry Dakar are not breathing good understanding. Proof by what happened during the return of the young Mamadou A. Diallo, cured of Ebola virus in Senegal. Last Friday, while Dakar believed to do well, chartering a special flight of the Army, for the return of Diallo, Conakry was waiting firm foot. Indeed, the military plane was unable to land at the airport in Conakry, because it did not obtain landing clearance. The aircraft in question has long hovered in the sky of Guinea, never obtaining the green light. This is of war weary that the crew decided to land at the airfield Kedougou. Mamadou Aliou Diallo Young finally returned home by road from the Kédougou.

                    Quite illustrative attitude Guinean frustrations born among other things, of the management of Mamadou A. Diallo case. Indeed, on several occasions, the Guinean press had echoes of Conakry convictions about the Senegalese decision to close its border with Guinea.

                    The Dakar-Conakry deteriorates...
