No New Ebola Cases Reported Last Week: World Health Organization
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced that no new Ebola cases were confirmed last week, marking the first full week without fresh cases of the deadly disease in a year an a half.

"No confirmed cases of Ebola virus disease were reported in the week to 4 October," WHO said in its latest situation report on the west African Ebola outbreak, pointing out that "this is the first time that a complete epidemiological week has elapsed with zero confirmed cases since March 2014."

Since the Ebola outbreak in Guinea's forest region last year, the deadly disease has killed more than 11,200 people in West Africa.
