LiberiaLiberia has once again been declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization (WHO).

This is the third time the WHO will be doing so, putting an end to the worst outbreak the world has had to deal with.

The “end of active transmission” was declared, after 42 days without a case in the country.

This was not the first time the announcement would be made as Liberia had been down the road twice, only for the disease to resurface.

The Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon, has also urged West Africa not to throw caution to the wind but to maintain proper hygiene.
