WHO – The Ebola outbreak in Liberia is over

WHO statement
9 May 2015

Today, 9 May 2015, WHO declares Liberia free of Ebola virus transmission. Forty-two days have passed since the last laboratory-confirmed case was buried on 28 March 2015. The outbreak of Ebola virus disease in Liberia is over.

Interruption of transmission is a monumental achievement for a country that reported the highest number of deaths in the largest, longest, and most complex outbreak since Ebola first emerged in 1976. At the peak of transmission, which occurred during August and September 2014, the country was reporting from 300 to 400 new cases every week.

Note: We await Ebola’s eradication in Sierra Leone and Guinea to finally assess the full impact of Ebola on this region of West Africa and the extent it has provided cover for Anglo-saxon corporate interests.

WHO – Ebola Situation summary – 21 Feb 2015

The Ebola situation report tables from 11th and 18th Feb 2015 have the same data from the 8th Feb 2015.
The figures below were compiled from WHO data summaries:

Country Case definition Cumulative cases Cases in past 21 days Cumulative deaths
Guinea Confirmed 2758 1699 (61.6%)
Probable 387 * 387

Total 11 155 3423 (30.7%)
Total 23 539 9541 (40.5%)

Note: ?? show no change from previous week.  The expectation is that the best practices would be applied in all 3 countries and hence see less disparity in mortality rates. Why the consistent disparity 4 months on?
Figures in (%) are mortality rates.
