The World Health Organization (WHO) has at last declared Liberia Ebola-free!
The WHO Representative to Liberia, Dr. Alex Gasasira, early last Saturday morning read a statement declaring Liberia Ebola-free after the country had endured the torments of the horrifying virus for nearly 415 days during which it killed over 4000 people.
The Declaration was read at the anti-Ebola Incident Management System (IMS) headquarters at 18th Street, Monrovia.
WHO’s announcement came after the entire Liberian nation had completed the required 42 days representing two-incubation periods of the virus without a single confirmed case. Actually on Saturday, Liberia had gone 50 days since the last case was reported in March this year.
