He rapped a song. “Ebola it’s time for you to go back, you have shown yourself enough alright? Bad sickness like you, you brought additional fear.


MSF said that Liberia’s completion of the WHO’s benchmark for the end of an Ebola epidemic — 42 days without a new case, marking twice the maximum incubation period of the virus — should not lead to complacency.

“We can’t take our foot off the gas until all three nations record 42 days with no cases,” said Mariateresa Cacciapuoti, MSF’s chief of mission in Liberia.
