Baby Benedicte, a six-week-old infant, has survived deadly Ebola outbreak in Congo.
Congo’s Ministry of Health has dubbed the baby as “a miracle’’ for surviving Ebola which she caught as a newborn.
On Friday, Jessica Ilunga, a spokesperson for the ministry told dpa that, “The little girl is called Benedicte and she was born on Oct. 31, so she’s about one and a half months old.’’
Sadly, Benedicte’s mother died during childbirth while also infected with Ebola which has so far killed more than 300 people in eastern Congo.
The infant is now home with her father and aunt.
