EBOLA ABUJA

Great news for Nigeria. The country is officially free of Ebola, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO is set to make the official announcement today, BBC reports.

The basis for declaring the Ebola-free status is that Nigeria hasn’t had a confirmed Ebola case for two incubation periods – 42 days.

Senegal has already met this criteria, and was declared free of Ebola on Friday.

Commending Nigeria on its success in eradicating Ebola, John Vertefeuille, an official from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said, “Nigeria acted quickly and early and on a large scale… they acted aggressively, especially in terms of contact-tracing.”

    Either way, while everyone lets some air out but a lot of damages has been done.just few days ago, many nigerians who applied for admission into texas university was denied admission this week saying that they are giving more preference this year to chinese people and indonesians.we all know that this a lie .the real reason is ebola from west africa periodcos up till this year, they have always given admissions to many nigerians and west africans in general
