Last two known Ebola cases in Liberia has been discharged from the hospital. The countdown to being declared Ebola free for the 3 time has started.

Yahoo reports that the Father and younger brother of the 15year-old boy who died on November 23, 2015 were released from the isolation treatment unit in the capital Monrovia on Thursday, December 3, 2015.

"As far as we know (there is) no case in the ETUs in the entire republic of Liberia," Tolbert Nyensuah, head of the country's Ebola response, told state radio.

"We also know that there is no new known transmission as of today, based on our epidemiological investigations."

Liberia was the last country affected by the two-year west African outbreak, with Sierra Leone declared free of transmission in November and Guinea's last known case recovering two weeks ago.

Ebola has left more than 11,300 people dead since December 2013 in its worst ever outbreak. Liberia has registered almost 10,700 cases and more than 4,800 deaths.

The country was first declared free of human-to-human transmission in May, only to see the fever resurface six weeks later, and officially credited with beating the epidemic for a second time in September.
