Give serious consideration to Dr. Logan’s success

Even though the United States, at the head of other nations and multilateral institutions and organizations has begun intervening, Liberia is assiduously struggling towards little success in the war against the deadly Ebola virus disease. As the 4000 American intervention troops begin setting up in Monrovia, Liberian medical authorities continue to bend backward daily to ensure that more Liberians don not succumb to Ebola.

Re-enforce hospital monitoring to track Ebola contacts

Liberia has, for the past week; again top the headlines of most of the major radio and television networks around- not because it remains one of the three West African countries worst hit by the deadly Ebola virus, but a nation whose citizens continue to export the virus to other countries.

The death toll of Ebola victims has now reached 3,083, while there are 6,553 cases. The figures are based on information provided on September 23 by the Ministries of Health in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone- the countries most impacted by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia told world leaders at the United Nations last week that at least 85 of Liberia's more than 1,700 Ebola victims were healthcare workers.
