Liberia has not reported a case of Ebola virus disease since July 12, 2015. However,
transmission continues in Guinea and Sierra Leone, although the numbers of cases
reported are at the lowest point in a year. This report details the current situation in
Guinea and Sierra Leone, outlines strategies to interrupt transmission, and highlights
the need to maintain public health response capacity and vigilance for new cases at
this critical time to end the outbreak.
