Liberia's held an official celebration of the country being declared free of Ebola. The government and the World Health Organisation made the announcement on Saturday after 42 days without a new case. During Liberia's year-long epidemic 4,700 people died - more than any other country. A public holiday was declared so pupils and workers could celebrate the virus being brought under control on Monday. The outbreak still isn't over in neighbouring Guinea and Sierra Leone. Liberians took to the streets with signs and posters with messages like "We will always overcome" and "We are the winner". Others danced, played drums and waved flags in celebration. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa was first reported in March 2014 and quickly became the deadliest outbreak since the disease was discovered in 1976. It's thought 26,720 cases have been reported and 11,079 people have died from it in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Mali and the US. The latest outbreak has killed five times more people than all the other known outbreaks put together.
