Latest Ebola outbreak over in Liberia; West Africa is at zero, but new flare-ups are likely to occur

14 January 2016 | Liberia - WHO declares the end of the most recent outbreak of Ebola virus disease in Liberia and says all known chains of transmission have been stopped in West Africa. But the Organization says the job is not over, more flare-ups are expected and that strong surveillance and response systems will be critical in the months to come.

CORRIGENDUM: A new suspected case of Ebola has been identified in Sierra Leone on 14 January, shortly after this press release came out.
