Liberian schools shut due to Ebola

Liberian schools shut due to Ebola

Liberia’s president is closing the nation’s schools and ordering non-essential government employees to stay at home as the country battles an Ebola outbreak.

Already, several airlines have halted their flights into Liberia amid a rising number of patients with one of the world’s most virulent diseases.

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf also said she not attend a summit of African leaders in Washington this week to help combat the crisis.

At least 129 people have died in Liberia from Ebola, and the disease is blamed for more than 672 deaths across West Africa.

Among the dead was an American man of Liberian descent who was working for the Liberian government. He later flew to Nigeria, where he died ob Friday.
