New case of Ebola

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced earlier this month that no new case of Ebola had been registered in Liberia since February 19, 2015. According to a report from Asia One News, the streak of "no new cases" of the deadly virus has ended. A woman in Liberia has tested positive for Ebola. It is not clear as to how long the woman has been infected or where she acquired the infection. However, the AFP reports that an unnamed source stated the woman's husband was a "cured" Ebola patient.
Time magazine had previously released a story of a man from India that had tested negative for Ebola after being cured. However, his semen tested positive. The CDC says that semen can test positive for up to three months after a negative blood test for Ebola. The agency further recommends those individuals who have survived Ebola abstain from sex, including oral sex, for at least three months. If abstinence cannot be followed the CDC recommends that condoms be worn during intercourse.
