Sierra Leone "Free From Ebola."

                                                      Celebrating in Freetown                                                  The World Health Organization has once again declared Sierra Leone "free from Ebola." Meeting WHO's requirement that 42 days pass without any new cases of the Ebola, after the last person infected was cured or had died, Sierra Leone has satisfied the organization's criteria to determine if the virus was no longer being transmitted. According to the country's President, the next step for the newly freed from Ebola country is to remain vigilant for any signs of Ebola's return. 

While people were dancing in the streets of Freetown, "the band continued to play on" in Guinea. Dionne Searcey of the New York Times reports that Guinea's Prime Minister Mohamed Said Fofana recently drove to Tana Village. This village, the President shouted; “Ebola is gone everywhere — except here, The eyes of the world are on Tana village.”

Ebola has primarily plagued West Africa causing more than 11,000 deaths in under two years. The current epidemic started in Guinea and in time it is likely that it will end here.
