The World Health Organization on Thursday said Sierra Leone is Ebola-free once again, after a mid-January flareup spoiled West Africa’s efforts to stamp out the two-year outbreak that killed more than 11,000 people.

“Today marks another milestone in the country’s effort to defeat Ebola,” the agency said in a statement. “WHO commends Sierra Leone’s government, partners and people on the effective and swift response to this latest outbreak.”
