WHO : Liberia is Ebola-free
I heard this news “Liberia is Ebola-free” a few days ago on an AP website.
I was so surprised because I had not read or heard the news from any Japanese news source.
I thought it was good news, but I also knew there are some survivors of Ebola who still need to heal the pain and recover from their grief. The article said the damage from the outbreak was “a scar on the conscience of the world.”
How can we avoid such a terrible situation from occurring again? I thought we have to create a more hygienic environment all over the world. In the case of the most recent massive Ebola outbreak, one of the causes of the epidemic was poor hygiene. The recovery from a problematic hygienic environment is not easy, but that recovery must be an important milestone to avoid such a terrible situation from occurring again.
