Abstract

This study modeled the presence of Ebola virus RNA in the semen of male Ebola survivors participating in the Postebogui study in Guinea. The median time of reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction negativity was 46.4 days after symptom onset (95% confidence interval, 11-82.6). The results emphasize the importance of the World Health Organization recommendations for survivors' management.
