Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on 6 August 2014 declared a state of emergency over the outbreak of Ebola Virus.
A statement released by World Health Organisation (WHO) confirmed the death of 932 patients due to the Ebola Virus in West Africa so far.
Ebola crisis in Liberia got worse because many people are keeping sick relatives at home instead of taking them to isolation centres.
World Health Organization (WHO) experts will meet in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss a response to the outbreak. The meeting will decide whether to declare a global health emergency.
Liberia had deployed troops to essentially quarantine parts of the country that had hit especially hard by the disease.
Checkpoints will be installed throughout the country and used to apply tracing measures on those suspected of carrying the virus.
American health officials will utilize a new diagnostic test created by the Pentagon in overseas locations selected by the Defence Department. The test can be used to diagnose the disease in those suffering from an infection, as well as those could have potentially been exposed.
