W.H.O.’s Good News — No New Ebola Cases, Across Africa — For A Solid 10 Days

Anti-Ebola8-10-2015 We have been following this international human tragedy for over 18 months. . . and some more good news now appears.

For the first time since March of 2014, the entire continent of Africa has passed a week without a single new Ebola case. Of course, monitoring the remaining contacts, and vaccinating those rings of contacts, remains a pressing urgency — in order to avoid any recurrent flare-ups. And so, just about 34 days until the entire continent might be declared Ebola free, by an official WHO monitoring measure. Here’s a bit — compiled form various new sources — related to the latest WHO Ebola Situation report:

. . . .There were no new cases of Ebola in West Africa last week for the first time since March 2014. . . . As the number of cases drops though, closely monitoring contacts and any potential cases becomes increasingly crucial, WHO’s Ebola response director Rick Brennan explained in a previous interview. . . .

Onward — with a bit of a spring in my step, now. . . grinning. When we put our minds to it — there are few limits to what we might accomplish.
