Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, closes most of the country’s borders. Ebola testing centers have been opened in the few points of entry that still remain. Public gatherings and hotels have been also ordered to play a 5-minute video on Ebola safety. Sirleaf:
No doubt the Ebola virus is a national health problem. It attacks our way of life, with serious economic and social consequences. As such we are compelled to bring the totality of our national resolve to fight this scourge.
