Liberian communities in the US battle Ebola on both sides of the Atlantic 
By Ralph H. & Elizabeth Tubman - Zoebush Reporters

In the wake of the first Ebola case reported in Dallas Texas, United States, Liberians in the DFW Metroplex woke up Tuesday morning now forced to deal with the Ebola virus on two fronts. Since early May of 2014, the focus and concerns of all Liberians living in the states have been on how to help their families, fellow Liberians and their country fight the Ebola virus which has killed
more than 3,000 people in west Africa with the most hit country being Liberia where over half of the deaths have occurred.

Liberians across the United States and the world have been focusing on one thing and one thing only, how to help their people and families. Every day, since the outbreak, Liberians have been getting news about the death of their fellow citizens, friends, families and loves ones. There has been a kind of silent panic within every family because no one knows when the next call was going to come, telling them that their love one is seriously sick with no medical help available or the sad news of death.

Liberians in the diaspora has been dealing with this situation and at the same time have been following development in the country as it plays out on the media about the virus. Liberians have followed the news every day with the hope and expectation that the virus would be contained.  It was very encouraging to see the international community with the United States taking the lead come in to help the people of Liberia and the other West African countries that are also experiencing the Ebola outbreak....Full Story

The death of Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who was the first patient in the U.S. to die of Ebola, is stirring debate in the Dallas Liberian community about whether there has been a difference in the quality of treatment between American and African patients with Ebola at U.S. hospitals.

Stanley Gaye, president of the Liberia Community Association in Dallas, said people have contacted him about concerns that Duncan was treated differently “because he was African and not only that, he was Liberian.”

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital explained today in detail how they cared for Duncan, including assigning 50 people to help with Duncan's care and securing an entire intensive care unit for Duncan.

However, Gaye told ABC News that one of the biggest concerns expressed by the Liberian community was that Duncan was allowed to leave that hospital on Sept. 25 even though he had early Ebola symptoms and had told a nurse there that he had recently traveled from West Africa.
