When the second outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease or EVD first hit Liberia in March of this year and started to spread at an alarming rate, many Liberians, especially public officials left the country unceremoniously.

During her remarks   at Liberia’s Independence Day celebration on Saturday, July 26 at the centennial Memorial Pavilion in Monrovia, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf named a National Task Force on Ebola. The primary objective of the Task Force is to ensure national coordination in the entire battle against the spread of the deadly Ebola disease in Liberia. Among major measures instituted by the Government of Liberia to fast-track the fight against Ebola was the declaration of a State of Emergency in consonance with Article 86 of the Constitution of Liberia. Since the enforcement of these measures, there continue to be calls from both within and outside of the government for a reconstitution of the National Task Force on Ebola.
