Liberia Thursday released its last Ebola patient, a 58-year old teacher, from a center in the capital, beginning its countdown to being declared Ebola free.There are no other confirmed cases of Ebola in the country, and as such Liberia can begin to count up to 42 days to be declared Ebola free in keeping with World Health Organization protocols and standards, Nyenswah said Wednesday. He challenged all Liberians to commit themselves to achieving "zero Ebola infections" by rigidly abiding by the anti-Ebola regulations.Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea have been hardest hit in the yearlong Ebola outbreak, which is estimated to have left over 9,800 people dead.The WHO Wednesday reported 132 new Ebola cases last week, an increase from the 99 cases reported the previous week.
