Monrovia, Jan 16.- Liberia will be free from Ebola in late February, stated today Tolbert Nyenswah, deputy health minister of this country. Nyenswah said that educational and health measures amid the population settled on the borders with other countries will be tightened, in an attempt to meet that goal.
Nyenswah said that only two out of the 15 Liberian counties have reported patients with Ebola, and the two regions are located in Great Cape Mount area, near the border with Sierra Leone.
So far 12 people are infected with Ebola in Liberia, one of the three African countries with most cases of the deadly disease, said Nyenswah.
Almost a year after the Ebola outbreak, there is a clear slowing trend of the disease due to the general behavior of the population in affected nations, said David Nabarro, United Nations coordinator for the fight against Ebola. (Prensa Latina)
