In response to a news story 'Liberia is Ebola Free' published recently in your newspaper, I just want to say that as much as I feel glad about the report, I also feel that it is not yet time for the nation to fully rejoice unless its neighbouring countries Sierra Leone and Guinea are also 100% free of the deadly virus. Undeniably, a lot of progress has been made since the onset of the epidemic, but the sad reality is that while Liberia could take pride in winning the battle against the disease, there are still much of work to be done near its border as fresh news of outbreaks continue. Worst, if the virus will not be contained at the soonest time, there is a big possibility that it could spread to the rest of Africa and other parts of the world. Now that Liberia has recovered, it is my hope that countries and organisations that pledged to contribute health resources will continue to support Guinea and Sierra Leone's fight. I guess it is still everyone's priority to continue to help and aspire for zero Ebola case worldwide.
