The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared Liberia free of the Ebola virus, confirming that the country has had no new cases in 42 days.

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said that Liberia had “crossed the Rubicon” and would be celebrating a concerted effort to stem the disease.

More than 4,700 deaths from Ebola have been recorded in Liberia, more than in any other affected country.

Neighbouring Guinea and Sierra Leone continue to fight the outbreak.

It has claimed over 11,000 lives across the region since last year.

The WHO regards a country Ebola-free after a 42-day period without a new case – twice the maximum incubation period.

The last confirmed death in Liberia was on 27 March. On Saturday the World Health Organization said in a statement: “The outbreak of Ebola virus disease in Liberia is over.”

President Sirleaf told journalists: “We will celebrate our communities which have taken responsibility and participated in fighting this unknown enemy and finally we”ve crossed the Rubicon. Liberia indeed is a happy nation.”

Although a serious suffer for the country for many days we will now live happily President Ellen Johnson where-else thanking the WHO Team.
