The World Health Organization declares that the outbreak of the Ebola virus has ceased in Liberia after weeks of no cases there.
The World Health Organization asks six African countries (Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, and Liberia) to be on the alert for possible Ebola outbreaks after Guinea and the Democratic Republic of Congo reported new cases that signaled a resurgence of the outbreak.
A 15-year-old boy from Liberia's Paynesville district, who tested positive for Ebola last week, dies of the disease at a treatment center near the capital, Monrovia, just over 11 weeks after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the country free of the virus. The boy's father and brother, who also tested positive, are at the center; his mother and two other siblings were admitted for observation. In addition, 160 people who came in direct contact with the boy, are being monitored.
