Liberia needs medical supplies SJ Dodgson 2014 v8n2 p0727

Liberia has sent out an urgent plea for medical protective clothing for health professionals caring for patients who have ebola.

The Liberian Ambassador, Hon Jeremiah C Sulunteh, told Independence Day celebrants that the embassy is organizing a container to be sent to Liberia and needs anything and everything that can be used to stop the spread of ebola. He told us that 2 doctors and 2 nurses have already died; this week we learned that a Liberian man died of ebola in Nigeria, starting fears that ebola could spread to Nigeria. Deaths have been reported in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, and from all reports coming out of these west African countries, ebola is not slowing down.
