WHO declares Liberia Ebola-free
Posted on: 2015-05-11 Posted by: CLAT Gurukul Category: Archive Blog
WHO has hailed Liberia’s Ebola eradication efforts as an enormous development in the long crisis and monumental achievement as the virus has killed more than 4,716 people in the country alone. Now, Liberia’s neighbous Guinea and Sierra Leone are only two countries fighting to stop Ebola outbreak since it began in December 2013. WHO can declare a country Ebola free, if no new cases are reported over two incubation periods of virus i.e. 21 days. In case of Liberia, no new cases of Ebola were reported in past 42 days i.e. twice the number of days the virus requires to incubate. The last confirmed death in Liberia was reported on 27 March 2015.
