The situation in Liberia concerning the spread of the deadly Ebola virus is getting worse. The country's National existence is facing serious threats as a result of the outbreak, according to its Defence Minister. The disease is spreading like wild fire and efforts to combat it isn't enough.

Excerpt from BBC:

Liberia is facing a "serious threat" to its national existence as the deadly Ebola virus "spreads like wildfire" there, its defence minister says.

"The deadly Ebola virus has caused a disruption of the normal functioning of our state," he said.
