 Liberia 'Optimistic' of Zero Ebola Cases by February End
Liberia, which was the country worst hit by the Ebola outbreak, hopes to have no new cases by the end of February, according to Liberian Commerce Minister Axel Addy. Latest figures reveal that the number of registered cases in Liberia is now just down to five against a peak of more than 300 a week in August and September.

The government minister said, "We think we can make it to zero by the end of February latest. We're quite optimistic. 12 of the country's 15 counties had reported no new cases. We've made a tremendous leap. The border towns are being monitored very closely... to ensure that cases in the area do not spread beyond the borders. The main problem now is getting the battered economy back on track. We've seen a revenue loss of $93 million (82 million euros). The key mining sector has come to a grinding halt."
