Ebola Epidemic has gone down considerably



Schools in Monrovia will resume in February

21/01/2015: Liberia

Our Brothers in Liberia are doing fine and the Ebola Epidemic has gone down considerably. They report that schools will resume on Monday, February 2, 2015. In view of this, registration for the Academic Year 2014/2015 begun in January 12, 2015.

The country is not yet Ebola-free. It should be noted that the 8,153 deaths: 2,915 reported from Sierra Leone, 3,471 in Liberia and 1,767 in Guinea are from the 20,656 confirmed or suspected cases.

Efforts to find a vaccine has yielded fruits. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the two leading Ebola vaccines made by GlaxoSmithKline and Merck and NewLink will soon be tested in healthy volunteers in West Africa. In the meantime the drug called brincidofovir is being tested in patients at the ELWA 3 centre in Monrovia operated by Médecins Sans Frontières.
