Jonathan's House shared U.S. Department of State: Embassy Freetown, Sierra Leone's post. ...

From U.S. Ambassador John Hoover Today marks a major milestone in the effort to end the scourge of Ebola in Sierra Leone. Yesterday, the last known case of Ebola in the country was discharged from an Ebola Treatment Unit in Makeni. This event was attended by President Koroma and many other heroic leaders of the emergency response to Ebola. With this milestone, the countdown to zero begins. If the country does not experience another Ebola case in the next 42 days, it will be officially declared Ebola-free. But as we saw in neighboring Liberia, even after achieving “zero plus 42”, an additional case (or cases) could pop up. We therefore remain committed and prepared to respond rapidly should one or more new cases be detected. We urge everyone to remain vigilant and not be complacent. Just one new case will set the country back by delaying badly needed psycho-social healing and economic recovery. At the same time, I want to convey profound thanks and kudos to all Sierra Leoneans and their international partners (including my own fantastic team at the U.S. Mission) for the hard work and sacrifice that have made this day possible. Let the countdown begin! Let’s get to a resilient zero.
