1. World Health Organisation has now declared Sierra Leone as Ebola-free after a loss of 4,000 victims to the deadly virus in last 17 months. The WHO country director, Anders Nordström, confirmed that 42 days had passed without any new cases, which satisfies criteria that transmission of the virus has ended.


2. The US economy added 271,000 jobs in October which is higher than earlier expectation of 185,000 jobs. Also US unemployment rate dropped to 5% in the same month which is the lowest in last seven and half years. This data increases expectations that the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates at its next policy meeting in December.
