Liberia declared free of Ebola

Disease Remedy,EBOLA

free-ebolaLiberia, the West African nation where Ebola killed the most people in the largest outbreak of the virus, has been declared free of the disease by the World Health Organization.

The notification by the Geneva-based WHO was received today, Liberia’s information minister said on its Twitter account Saturday, reports The Straits Times.

No new Ebola cases have been detected since the burial of the last victim 42 days ago, twice the incubation period.

‘We are out of the woods. We are Ebola free,’ the ministry said. ‘Thanks to our partners for standing with us in the fight against Ebola.’

The disease is still spreading in Sierra Leone and Guinea, though at a slower pace, encouraging the government efforts there to control the outbreak, which started in December 2013.
