The security forces in Liberia pass orders to impose new strict measures in the area. According to the assistance Health Minister, Liberia faces “humanitarian crisis.” The U.S. charity that is currently fighting the virus withdraws staff that is not essential enough for their national plan.
On Wednesday, Liberia announced the quarantine of several communities along with the closure of schools all around the country. These prove to be the toughest measures that have been taken by the government of West Africa to put halt to the worst Ebola outbreak on record.
All the security forces have been ordered to make sure that the measures are forced upon as a part of action plan.
As of this month, around 672 deaths have been caused due to this deadly virus in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, as stated by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Lewis Brown, the information minister of Liberia, said, “This is a major public health emergency. It is fierce, deadly and many of our countrymen are dying and we need to act to stop the spread. We need the support of the international community now more than ever. We desperately need all the help we can get.”
