The Democratic Republic of Congo released its last confirmed Ebola patients from treatment centres on Monday, health authorities said, beginning a 42-day countdown to the declaration of the country free of the virus.

Twelve cases have been reported since the virus re-emerged at the beginning of February, killing six people.
