New Delhi: The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared Nigeria free from Ebola virus on Monday.
The disease has claimed more than 4,500 in West Africa.
Nigeria has not had a confirmed case of Ebola from the past 42 days.
The deadly disease has already claimed a victim in the United States of America.
Amidst mounting fear of Ebola virus disease becoming a global plague, specialists look for a more effective response to control the spread of the deadly disease.
Close attention is being paid to Nigeria which has an ill-equipped health system.
Meanwhile, European foreign ministers will meet in Luxembourg today to try and formalise a joint EU response to combat the Ebola virus amid diplomatic warnings the crisis has reached a "tipping point".
Senegal has already been declared free of the disease.
