Chief lab technician, Mr. Boré Kaliva with his laboratory staff, at the Prefecture Hospital in Yomou, Guinea. He was demonstrating the use of the Rapid Diagnostic Test [RDT] for Ebola Virus, using positive and negative control samples. Yomou hospital was one of the sites selected for the RDT-Ebola pilot study, in part due to its proximity to the site of the earliest recorded cases of Ebola in Guinea’s Forest Region.
