WHO Declares Nigeria Ebola Free Nation


The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared Nigeria Ebola free on Monday, after a 42 day period with no new cases elapsed.


"Nigeria is now free of Ebola," WHO representative Rui Gama Vaz told a news conference in the capital Abuja.



“It’s possible to control Ebola. It’s possible to defeat Ebola. We’ve seen it here in Nigeria,” Nigerian Minister of Health Onyebuchi Chukwu told TIME. “If any cases emerge in the future, it will be considered—by international standards—a separate outbreak. If that happens, Nigeria will be ready and able to confront it exactly as we have done with this outbreak.”
