ActionAid Nigeria Country Director Hussaini Abdu said: “It is clearly good news that Nigeria has now been declared Ebola free – and demonstrates that Ebola can be fought and contained.

“It also shows how a well-resourced health service and good infection-surveillance systems has meant we can respond to Ebola in an effective and co-ordinated way.

 “However we must remain vigilant. Ebola is a highly dangerous virus  and we must stay alert to any signs of new infections so that we can respond quickly and effectively.”
