    Liberia Only 5 people being treated for Ebola in country - Yahoo News

    it was predicted to take until Jan 2015 to reduce the epidemic to controllable levels.
    the numbers were greatly reduced by intervention, so it's hard to know how
    bad this WOULD have gotten without outside intervention to build facilities and staffing.

    Still, Nyenswah cautioned it is too early to say when Liberia will be Ebola-free because authorities must still track down every infected person. Just one missed infection could seed a new cluster.

    In all, Ebola has sickened more than 21,000 people, the vast majority in West Africa, killing more than 8,600.

    In another sign that the disease is fading, Senegal on Monday reopened its land border with Guinea, which has been closed since August
