The number of new confirmed Ebola cases totalled 99 in the week to January 25, the lowest tally since June 2014, the World Health Organisation said on Thursday, signalling the tide might have turned against the epidemic.

“The response to the EVD (Ebola virus disease) epidemic has now moved to a second phase, as the focus shifts from slowing transmission to ending the epidemic,” the WHO said.

“To achieve this goal as quickly as possible, efforts have moved from rapidly building infrastructure to ensuring that capacity for case finding, case management, safe burials, and community engagement is used as effectively as possible.”
