The biggest and most complex Ebola outbreak in history is currently going on in Liberia, West Africa and surrounding countries. To date, more than 1300 people have been infected and more than 700 people have died. There is no vaccine for Ebola, however Ebola

(CNN) -- The government of Liberia says that sample doses of the experimental Ebola drug ZMapp will be sent there to treat doctors who have contracted the deadly virus.
The White House and Food and Drug Administration approved the Liberian request for the drug to be made available to them.
Liberia identified itself as the recipient of the drug after the company that makes ZMapp said earlier that its supply was exhausted after fulfilling the request of a West African country, which it did not name.
The delivery of the ZMapp to Liberia follows a request made on Friday from Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to President Barack Obama.
The sample doses will be brought to Liberia by a U.S. government representative this week, the Liberian government said...... Full Story
Boston groups helping Liberia respond to Ebola outbreak

Liberians living in Boston are among those shipping medical supplies to Africa and educating people about the outbreak of Ebola
Every day, Saran Kaba Jones calls her family in Liberia to make sure they have not contracted the deadly Ebola virus ravaging the country. Her relatives have already seen several loved ones succumb to the virus, and they worry it’s a matter of time before it hits one of them.
Jones is the founder and chief executive officer of FACE Africa, a Boston nonprofit that works to bring clean water to Liberia but now is hoping to help slow the spread of Ebola. Her group, along with other Boston-based organizations, is shipping medical supplies and spearheading education campaigns.
“There’s a lot of fear. People are really afraid,” said Jones, who was in Liberia in May and June. “Both the government and people in general weren’t really taking the outbreak seriously until it really started to rapidly spread and the number of casualties started to increase. That’s when we all started to really wake up and pay attention.”....Full Story

A quarantine centre for suspected Ebola patients in the Liberian capital Monrovia has been attacked and looted by protesters, police say.
The incident happened in the densely populated West Point township on Saturday evening. At least 20 patients who were being monitored for signs of the illness have left the centre. Officials said blood-stained bedding looted from the centre posed a serious infection risk. The protesters were unhappy that patients were being brought in from other parts of the capital, the assistant health minister said.
Other reports suggested the protesters believed Ebola was a hoax and wanted to force the quarantine centre to close. The centre was set up to observe suspected Ebola patients and then transfer them to a main treatment centre if they prove positive, assistant health minister Tolbert Nyenswah told the BBC.
The crowd were reportedly angry that an Ebola isolation centre had been set up in their neighbourhood
A young American man died Wednesday in Liberia, where an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus has reached historic levels. But, his family said, it wasn't the disease that took his life.
Nathaniel Dennis from Columbia, Maryland died at Aspen Medical in Sinkor, Liberia after spending a week in a coma. His death followed a frantic battle by his family to evacuate the 24-year-old to better equipped medical facilities outside of Liberia, a task that proved impossible amid the region's Ebola outbreak even after he tested negative for the deadly disease.....more

Three doctors in Liberia with Ebola who started taking an experimental drug last Thursday are showing remarkable signs of improvement, a minister says.
ZMapp was first given earlier this month to two US aid workers, who were flown home for treatment from Liberia.
Ebola has no cure but the World Health Organization (WHO) has ruled that untested drugs can be used in light of the scale of outbreak in West Africa.
Since the beginning of the year, 1,229 people have died of the virus.
It is transmitted by direct contact with the body fluids of an infected person. Initial flu-like symptoms can lead to external haemorrhaging from areas such as eyes and gums, and internal bleeding which can cause organ failure.
The outbreak began in Guinea and has since spread to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
Health officials in Guinea say the country has suffered a setback in its fight against the epidemic, seeing a resurgence of cases in the town of Macenta.
The BBC's Alhassan Sillah in Guinea says the town had not had any cases for two months, and the authorities had dismantled all Ebola facilities in that area.
Analysis: Umaru Fofana, BBC News, Sierra Leone
Fighting the myths and fear surrounding Ebola is as tough as fighting the disease itself. They range from the bizarre to the ridiculous: Some see it as the culmination of some bio warfare gone awry; others say it is a cannibalistic ritual.
In the latest flashpoint - some people in Lunsar, about 120km (74 miles) east of the capital, Freetown, say the new cases are not Ebola patients at all. In fact, they insist that witches are flying around the country in aircraft and one of these crashed causing casualties.
All this, and the notion that an Ebola patient cannot recover, have led many sick people to stay at home, hoping they have something else. This is despite the fact that about 30% of patients have recovered.
The authorities have been encouraging those who become ill to report to hospitals for testing and treatment, if needed. But as the messengers are distrusted, the message is not getting through......Full Story
