WHO Declares Nigeria Ebola Free - Can Nigerians Relax Now?


Temitope Akinola
Nigeria has been declared Ebola free by WHO after 42 days of no newly reported case. It's worth celebration as this is a signal that at least Nigerian people have been able to combat Ebola Virus successfully, having only 9 casualties. Our Ebola Casualties are small compared to thousands of people that have lost their lives to the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

Now that we are free from Ebola Virus Disease in Nigeria, are we free from its threat? Can Nigerians now hug, shake and touch their loved ones freely? Can we go about our normal business without having to wash hands like twenty-something times a day? Can Nigerians relax a bit now that we've been declared Ebola free by WHO?

Not relaxing on....my sanitiser is now a permanent body part. I can't rejoice until Africa is totally Ebola free
