    Guinea’s health ministry and the World Health Organization have declared the end of an Ebola outbreak.

    The outbreak emerged in a southern district four months ago.

    While more than 11,000 people died in an outbreak in the same area in 2014, this time the death toll was far lower.

    In This Story: Guinea

    Guinea is a country in West Africa, bordered on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. Formerly known as French Guinea (French: Guinée française), the modern country is sometimes referred to as Guinea-Conakry to distinguish it from other countries with “Guinea” in the name.

    It’s known for the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, in the southeast. The reserve protects a forested mountain range rich in native plants and animals, including chimpanzees and the viviparous toad. On the coast, the capital city, Conakry, is home to the modern Grand Mosque and the National Museum.
