In Sierra Leone, the authorities decided not to extend the three-day Ebola quarantine, which is due to end in a few hours.
Officials said the 72-hour curfew to deal with the virus was a success.
Before making the decision not to extend it, the head of the emergency center that supervised the operation said that it had not been completed in some cities, including the capital, Freetown.
More than 90 corpses were removed during the quarantine and more than 100 people voluntarily appeared before the health authorities.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian teachers’ union requested that the start of the school term be postponed due to the incidence of the virus.
Students will return to classes on Monday, after a longer than normal summer vacation due to the Ebola outbreak.
Union president Michael Olukuya stated that safety measures to contain the virus are not in place.
Chairman Goodluck Jonathan dismissed the postponement request.
The government went so far as to say that schools would remain closed until mid-October, but the date was brought forward when the number of confirmed cases began to drop.
