Life is edging back to normal in Liberia after the country was declared free of the Ebola Virus Disease by World Health Organization (WHO) few weeks back.
Another big news for football administration of the country is that the Confederation of African Football has lifted the suspension imposed on them which barred Ebola- hit countries from hosting continental matches at home.
CAF says on its website that it lifted the ban after it obtained a confirmation letter from the (WHO). Now, that Ebola has been wiped out, football matches can now be organised in any part of the West African country.
Meanwhile, Guinea and Sierra Leone, two other African
countries still affected by the EVD are still suspended.
“However, WHO confirms that the situation of the Ebola epidemic in Guinea and Sierra Leone requires that CAF keeps its precautionary principle, and asks the concerned teams to organise their matches on a neutral ground,” a CAF statement adds.
