The World Health Organization stated that the period of active spread of the Ebola virus is over. BBC Russian service reported this January 14.
It’s been 42 days since the last case of sickness was observed in Liberia. Previously, governments of Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone confirmed that the epidemic in their countries was over.
Despite the news, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon reckons that the West Africa still faces the threat of new local bursts of Ebola in 2016. He urged the international community to watch closely on the development of the epidemiologic situation in the region.
By the WHO’s estimates, since 2013, more than 11 thousand people have died due to the fiercest outbreak of the disease in the human history. The Ebola virus originated and spread across the Western Africa. Most of the victims were citizens of Equatorial Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
