Nigeria has been declared Ebola-free.
On October 20, 2014, The Washington Post wrote this:
“According to WHO, the success of Nigeria — Africa’s most populous nation — was attributable to ample funding, quick action and assistance from the WHO, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the non-profit Doctors Without Borders.”
This is a lie.
Below is a direct quote from the WHO report (in case you are wondering who WHO is: World Health Organization):
“What accounts for this great news? To a large extent, the answer is straightforward: the country’s strong leadership and effective coordination of the response. The Nigerian response to the outbreak was greatly aided by the rapid utilization of a national public institution (NCDC) and the prompt establishment of an Emergency Operations Centre, supported by the Disease Prevention and Control Cluster within the WHO country office.”
