Guinea’s last known Ebola patient has left the hospital, setting the nation on the path to being declared Ebola-free.

The patient is 1-month-old Nubia, who was born to an infected mother, reports Reuters. International health organization Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) reports that Nubia is the first baby to recover after being born to an Ebola-infected mother.

“This is a very happy day for us,” said Laurence Sailly, head of MSF’s emergency team in Guinea, in an interview with Reuters. “It was very moving for us and the family to be able to touch her without gloves.”
