|Day after admission||Blood, Ct||Breast milk, Ct||Urine, Ct|
|14||40.5, nucleoprotein||27.5, nucleoprotein||NT|
|21||40.3, nucleoprotein||32.7, nucleoprotein||NT|
|29||Negative, glycoprotein and nucleoprotein||NT||Negative, glycoprotein and nucleoprotein|
*Testing performed by using the Xpert Ebola Assay (GeneXpert Instrument Systems, Cepheid, Sunnyvale, CA, USA). The lowest of the reported glycoprotein and nucleoprotein values are reported. Ct values <20 are highly positive, whereas Ct values >35 are weakly positive. Ct, cycle threshold; NT, not tested.
