Nigeria to be Declared Ebola-free Today

Nigeria is expected to be declared Ebola-free on today Monday, October 20, 2014, just three months after fears that the virus could spread like wildfire through Africa’s most populous nation.

The World Health Organisation, WHO, is preparing to announce that Nigeria has not had a confirmed case of Ebola for 42 days – or two incubation periods of 21 days – just as it did for Senegal on Friday.

The achievement is being welcomed, with no end in sight to the disease that has claimed more than 4,500 lives this year, most of them in West Africa, and mounting fears about cases around the world.
