Here's some good news with which to end your 2015 ...

... Guinea Declared Free of Ebola Virus That Killed Over 2,500

Guinea was declared free of Ebola transmission on Tuesday after more than 2,500 people died from the virus in the West African nation, leaving Liberia as the only country still counting down the days until the end of the epidemic.

The announcement comes 42 days after the last person confirmed with Ebola tested negative for a second time. The country now enters a 90-day period of heightened surveillance, the U.N. World Health Organization said.

UPDATE: A nice follow-up by the U.S. Government, surveying all the work done, and all the work left to do.
