Liberia steps up efforts to control Ebola outbreak

  • Liberia is likely to quarantine many rural communities, shut down schools and several markets, and send all non-essential public servants on leave as it steps up efforts to tackle the Ebola outbreak in this part of West Africa.

    The virus has killed more than 670 people since February. After originating in Guinea, it spread to the other West African countries of Sierra Leone and Liberia.

    Nigeria’s main airline, Arik Air, has suspended all flights between Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.
