He carried a certificate of medical clearance from the government of Liberia that said: “He has successfully undergone care and treatment related to Ebola virus disease and after post-treatment assessment, he has been declared free of any clinical signs and symptoms and confirmed negative by laboratory analysis.” The statement said that as a matter of abundant caution, the person was isolated at the Airport Health Organization’s quarantine center at the Delhi airport. His three blood samples tested at the National Centre for Disease Control in Delhi were found negative for Ebola virus.
Therefore, as per WHO and CDC specifications, he was deemed to be cured. However, as has been reported in the past, the virus may continue to be positive in secretions like urine and semen for a longer time. (IANS)
