Liberia health system collapsing as Ebola spreads – Yahoo News

The country entered the epidemic with only about 50 doctors for 4 million people, he said. What is happening is the entire health sector is being devastated by the crisis. It is not only a killer, but it kills those who care for them, and a good number of them are dying, Ngafuan said. Overwhelmed, the three West African countries most affected by the Ebola virus – Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone – stressed at a meeting on Monday with top-level U.S. government officials, the Centers for Disease Conrol and Prevention and the World Bank that a global response is critical, Ngafuan said. Sierra Leones Foreign Minister Samura Kamara in a separate interview in Washington after the three-day U.S.-Africa Summit delivered a similar message. “This is a disease that is beyond the capacity of the three national governments. We need greater international awareness and support and it should be considered a global health crisis that needs a global response,” he said.
