Video: Ebola patient escapes quarantine in Liberia, spreads panic in Monrovia

On Monday, a patient suffering from the deadly Ebola virus left quarantine in Monrovia to search for food at a local market before being caught by doctors and forced back into an ambulance while scared and angry crowds watched on.

One local woman said care for Ebola patients was so inadequate they were not even being fed.

“The patients are hungry, they are starving. No food, no water. The government need to do more,” she said.

More than 1,550 people in four West African countries have died from the virus since the outbreak was first recorded in March.

Liberia has the highest infection rate with around 700 deaths out of 1,327 suspected and confirmed cases.
