WHO is set to make the official announcement
today, BBC reports.

The basis for declaring the Ebola-free status is that
Nigeria hasn’t had a confirmed Ebola case for two
incubation periods – 42 days.


Senegal has already met this criteria, and was
declared free of Ebola on Friday.

Commending Nigeria on its success in eradicating
Ebola, John Vertefeuille, an official from the US
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
said, “Nigeria acted quickly and early and on a
large scale… they acted aggressively, especially in
terms of contact-tracing.”

This is good news!
