The committee said in a statement that as a result of further improvements in Ebola prevention and control activities across West Africa, including in the area of contact tracing, the overall risk of international spread appears to have further reduced since January.

A decline in case incidence and geographic distribution in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea was recorded.
