West Africa marks end of deadly Ebola outbreak
MONROVIA—Liberia said Thursday it is free of Ebola, meaning there are now no known cases in west Africa of the tropical virus that has killed more than 11,300 people in the region since late 2013.
Liberia was the country worst hit with more than 4,800 Liberians killed by the virus, and was awaiting the all-clear following the discharge of its last known patients in May.
“Liberia is again free of Ebola. We have just ended the incubation period following the last case,” Sorbor George, chief of communication at the ministry, told AFP.—AFP
