WHO declares Liberia free of Ebola

Following more than a month during which no new Ebola cases were reported in the country, Liberia was officially declared Ebola-free on Saturday by the World Health Organization.

Liberian officials on Sunday urged Ebola survivors to observe a period of strict sexual abstinence after they recover from the deadly virus. The recommendation comes amid fears that Liberia's latest case of Ebola was the result of sexual transmission.
