Sierra Leone enters a 90-day period of enhanced surveillance for Ebola

Freetown, Sierra Leone (PANA) – The World Health Organization (WHO) declared on Saturday that Ebola virus transmission has been stopped in Sierra Leone.

According to WHO, 42 days, that is two Ebola virus incubation cycles, have now passed since the last person confirmed to have Ebola virus disease had a second negative blood test.

The country now enters a 90-day period of enhanced surveillance, which will run until February 5, 2016.

This new phase is critical for ensuring early detection of any possible new cases of Ebola virus disease.
