Liberia Moves From Ebola Control to Eradication

The WHO’s announcement of less than 100 Ebola cases in the last week has prompted agency and government efforts to shift towards Ebola eradication.

MONROVIA, LIBERIA - JANUARY 28: UNICEF workers assemble "school infection prevention kits" to stop the spread of Ebola in schools scheduled to open next week on January 28, 2015 in Monrovia, Liberia. The UN agency, with funding from USAID, says it plans to produce some 10,000 of the kits to be distributed to more than 5,000 districts around Liberia. The kits include buckets, thermal gun thermometers with batteries, soap, packpack sprayers, boots, gloves, chlorine, cloths, brooms and lists of protocols. Although schools are scheduled to reopen Monday, February 2, many have not been cleaned nor have adequate supplies since they were closed last March due to the Ebola epidemic. The reopening of schools is considered a major step in the country's return to normalcy as health authorities come closer to eradicating the virus.
