 New Ebola Cases Dropped to Its Lowest Level

The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that the number of new Ebola cases reported in the three worst-hit countries in west Africa, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia has dropped to its lowest level since late June.

With 65 new cases in Sierra Leone, 30 in Guinea and 4 in Liberia, the WHO said that the three countries jointly reported a total of 99 new cases for the week ending January 25. However, Guinea's figure rose from 20 confirmed cases in the previous week.
