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.
MONROVIA, Liberia – Liberia's president declared a curfew and ordered security forces to quarantine a slum home to at least 50,000 people late Tuesday as the West African country battled to stop the spread of Ebola in the capital.The measures came as authorities said that three health workers in the country who received an experimental drug for the disease are showing signs of recovery, though medical experts caution it is not certain if the drug is effective. ..

North Texas Liberians, some of whose families have been affected by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, are watching and waiting, afraid to hear from home, as they look for ways to help family, friends and communities.
“Any time you hear that phone ring, and you look on there, and it’s a number from Liberia, my heart goes, ‘Oh, God, please,’ ” said Elizabeth Tubman, an Arlington resident who has lived in the United States for about 20 years. Tubman has three sisters and extended family in Liberia.
An estimated 5,000 people with Liberian ties live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, leaders of the Liberian Community Association of Dallas/Fort Worth said.
The group has set up an emergency appeal for donations on its website
“People are dying every day,” said Stanley Gaye, president of the Liberian Community Association of Dallas/Fort Worth. “You don’t know who has the sickness.”
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has been described as one of the largest in history. The disease is suspected in 1,552 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Albert Travell, an Arlington resident with family in Liberia, said he has lost seven relatives.
Travell said he believes that when a niece got sick and died, relatives thought she had malaria and didn’t take precautions when they prepared her body for burial.
Later, six relatives got Ebola. Travell said he doesn’t know how his niece initially contracted the virus.”....Full Story

MONROVIA/CONAKRY Sat Aug 30, 2014 5:39pm EDT
(Reuters) - Crowds sang and danced in the streets of a seaside neighborhood in Liberia on Saturday as the government lifted quarantine measures designed to contain the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.
Faced with the worst Ebola outbreak in history, West African governments have struggled to find an effective response. More than 1,550 people have died from the hemorrhagic fever since it was first detected in the forests of Guinea in March.
Residents of the impoverished seaside district of West Point in Monrovia were forcibly cut off from the rest of the capital in mid-August after a crowd attacked an Ebola center there, allowing the sick to flee.
The quarantine sparked protests and security forces responded with tear gas and bullets, killing a teenaged boy......Full Story
Scrubs: check. Gum boots: check. Gloves: check. Tychem suit: check. Mask: check. Hood: check. Apron: check. Goggles: check. Gloves again: check. "Ready?" I ask the Liberian nurse assisting me. She shakes her head and grabs a small strip of duct tape, covering the space between my hood and goggles where a thin slice of skin was showing. "Now ready," she replies.
The temperature in Monrovia is just over 80, the humidity even higher. I feel the sweat collecting between my skin and suit, pooling in my boots and along the bottom of my goggles as I slowly follow the
physician training me into the high-risk zone of the world's largest Ebola treatment center. It feels far more like scuba diving through a hot spring than beginning morning rounds in a hospital, but that is exactly what we are doing.
A few moments later, I meet my very first patient with Ebola, a young man who had wandered away from his bed during the night and is now lying on the ground near the edge of the high-risk zone. He is tired and confused. He doesn't know where he is, or why there are two men in space suits towering over him. The physician with me calmly reassures him, and together we help lift him to his feet and guide him back to his thin mattress in one of the large white tents serving as an Ebola ward. He is profoundly weak, and as we walk, I notice that his pants are soaked through with diarrhea, a hallmark of the disease. ....full story
The New Dawn (Monrovia)
1 SEPTEMBER 2014
President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has rejected the World Health Organization's prediction that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa could infect more than 20,000 people before it is brought under control.
President Sirleaf, who chairs the National Ebola Taskforce here, said her objection to the experts' outside Monrovia.
prediction does not imply that her government doesn't respect them, but argued that projections could be proven wrong, especially "When one has the will and commitment to overcome a battle."
She spoke on Saturday, August 30, when she visited the C.H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata City, Margibi County, just after witnessing the discharging of a Congolese Doctor Sengo Omeoga, and a Liberian Physician Assistant, Kandy Kobah, who survived treatment at the ELWA Hospital in Paynesville,......Full Story
