1 This category also includes countries that have experienced widespread transmission but are transitioning to being declared free of Ebola. The World Health Organization is responsible for determining when a country will be declared free of Ebola virus transmission. Public health authorities in these countries should maintain active surveillance for new cases of Ebola and identify, locate and monitor any potential contacts.

2 The World Health Organization declared the end of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia on May 9, 2015, after 42 days (two incubation periods) had passed since the last Ebola patient was buried. On May 13, 2015, CDC changed the country classification for Liberia to a country with former widespread transmission and current, established control measures. Public health authorities are maintaining active surveillance so that any new cases of Ebola are rapidly identified.

3 On June 29, routine surveillance detected a new confirmed case of Ebola in Liberia—the first since March 20. The person died on June 28 and postmortem testing confirmed Ebola. CDC is working closely with the Liberian government and other international partners to investigate the chain of transmission, identify any new cases, and prevent further spread.

4 There are currently no cases of Ebola in Senegal, Nigeria, Spain, the United States, Mali, the United Kingdom, and Italy. A country is considered to be free of Ebola virus transmission when 42 days (double the 21-day incubation period of the Ebola virus) has elapsed since the last patient in isolation became laboratory negative for EVD.
