Nigeria to be declared Ebola free

The announcement is likely to come on Monday
Lagos: Nigeria is expected to be declared Ebola-free on Monday, just three months after fears that the virus could spread like wildfire through Africa's most populous nation.
The WHO is preparing to announce that Nigeria has not had a confirmed case of Ebola for 42 days or two incubation periods of 21 days just as it did for Senegal on Friday.
The achievement is being welcomed, with no end in sight to the disease that has claimed more than 4,500 lives this year, most of them in west Africa.
