Ebola Strikes Liberia!
A month after her return, Ebola struck Liberia. In a sweeping epidemic, the virus raged throughout the country for over a year and a half before the country was declared free of Ebola. Over 10,000 cases of Ebola were documented, resulting in 4,808 reported deaths. The poor sanitation, lack of proper nutrition and healthcare in the wake of the civil war was now far worse after the decimation wrought by Ebola. The struggling country was knocked down again, and is in great need of assistance to survive, much less become the thriving, beautiful place it once was and could be again.
