Ebola Free!

Sierra Leone is now Ebola Free! The World Health Organization announced that the last patient infected with Ebola had tested negative On August 24, 2015. For the country to be declared officially free of Ebola, another 42 days must pass after the announcement. This news is being taken with some caution remembering Liberia's Ebola resurgence. 
At the beginning of the Ebola plague, many volunteers became infected and died. The WHO has estimated that healthcare workers are between 21 and 32 times more likely to be infected with Ebola than people in the general population. 
As previously reported a vaccine tested in Guinea has yielded good initial results. Many are requesting the research on Ebola vaccination and treatment to continue.
