CONAKRY, Nov 16 (Reuters) - Guinea's last known Ebola patient, a 19-day-old baby, has recovered and been released from a treatment centre in the capital Conakry, a health official said on Monday.

"The last confirmed case of Ebola has been released from a treatment centre," said Fodé Tass Sylla, spokesman for Guinea's Ebola coordination unit. "We did two tests after the treatment and they came back negative." (Reporting by Saliou Samb; Writing by Emma Farge; Editing by Dominic Evans)
