Cases of Ebola are on the decline as the three worst affected countries have recorded their lowest rates of new infections in months.

According to figures released by the UN, Sierra Leone and Guinea both recorded their lowest weekly total since August while Liberia had its lowest weekly total since June.

The worst Ebola outbreak in history has claimed 8,429 lives while a total of 21,296 cases have been recorded.

According to the latest report by the World Health Organization (WHO), the three countries now all have sufficient capacity to bury all the people known to have died from Ebola.

Sierra Leone is still currently the country with the most cases of the disease.
