Liberia has released its last Ebola patient, a 58-year-old English teacher.

Beatrice Yardolo was released from the Chinese-run Ebola treatment centre in the Paynesville district of Monrovia, the capital.

On her way home she told the Associated Press she was “one of the happiest persons on earth today”.

Ms Yardolo said she had been admitted on February 18.

Tolbert Nyenswah, head of the Incidence Management System, said there were no other confirmed cases of Ebola in the country.

He said yesterday that once the last patient was released, Liberia could then begin to count up to 42 days to be declared Ebola-free in keeping with World Health Organisation protocols and standards.
