Three new cases of Ebola were confirmed in Liberia last week less than three months after the country was declared free of the virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported. Ebola has already killed more than 4,800 people in Liberia. The World Health Organization estimates that 11,300 people have died after contracting the Ebola virus across Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

The ongoing campaign, European Testing Week, runs from 17 to 24 May. It encourages health care and policy institutions throughout Europe to unite for one week to increase testing efforts and promote awareness on the benefits of earlier hepatitis and HIV testing.
The risk of infection with HIV or hepatitis, is a public health challenge across Europe. A large proportion of the estimated nine million Europeans living with these infections are unaware that they are infected.
This year, the focus is set on scaling up testing efforts in prison settings and with vulnerable populations.
This initiative has progressed since its start in 2013 and has grown to be a widely recognized European event with hundreds of organisations participating every year.
