Tolbert Nyenswah, the head of Liberia Ebola Incident Management System, Assistant Minister of Health for Preventive Services, said achieving this was a great day for Liberia as a nation struggles to cope with Ebola.

"Today signifies a very great day for our country. When the news was bad, we reported the bad news. We stand here today to signify good news," he told guests in attendance.

Nyenswah urged his compatriots to continue to observe strict Ebola protocols imposed to end the threat of the virus in the country.

"We have 102 contacts that are under follow-up. What we also know is that this does not signify Ebola is over in Liberia," the official said.
