(elbcradio.com/May 13, 2015)-The Canadian Government says it will begin reissuing visas to Liberian residents, now that the country has been declared Ebola free.

The World Health Organization (WHO) Saturday, May 9, 2015 in Monrovia declared Liberia Ebola free, because the country had gone 42 days without an Ebola infection.
The declaration represents a milestone signalling that the outbreak in the country is now over.

Thousands of Liberian children return to school, after a six-month closure, to stem the spread of an Ebola outbreak.

In late October 2014, Canada made the controversial decision to close borders to people from Ebola-affected countries.

Canada vowed at the time not to process visa applications from residents and citizens of countries with widespread and persistent Ebola transmissions.
