Liberia to be declared Ebola-free, ending world outbreak

 
Liberia is to be declared Ebola-free by the World Health Organization (WHO), effectively putting an end to the world's worst outbreak of the disease.

The "end of active transmission" will be declared, after 42 days without a new case in Liberia.

It joins Guinea and Sierra Leone, which earned the status last year.

However, UN chief Ban Ki-moon has warned that West Africa may see flare-ups of the virus. It has killed more than 11,000 people since December 2013.
