In addition to that , Facebook will also provide free Internet service to Ebola relief workers in Western Africa. It has been noted that lack of connectivity has been a major barrier in the fight against ebola , limiting how quickly aid workers can educate residents on how to stay healthy and avoid the disease.

Facebook will donate 100 satellite Internet hotspots via NetHope to medical facilities and NGOs in remote areas of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. These will let aid workers and patients use voice and web connectivity to battle Ebola and stay in touch with loved ones.

The fight against ebola has yielded positive results so far. WHO recently decleared Nigeria Ebola Free , after no new cases were recorded in six weeks.

  1. My joy is that Ebola is no longer in Nigeria. I remembered the night when people were subjected to bathing with salty water due to the wide spread of false Rumours and the fear of ebola contamination. Very funny indeed.
