We report on an Ebola virus disease (EVD) survivor who showed Ebola virus in seminal fluid 531 days after onset of disease. The persisting virus was sexually transmitted in February 2016, about 470 days after onset of symptoms, and caused a new cluster of EVD in Guinea and Liberia.
Keywords: Ebola virus; Ebola virus persistence; real-time sequencing; seminal fluid; sexual transmission.
